I'm considering the purchase of the VG-99. I recently took my Godin LGX-SA to Guitar Center to put the VG though it's paces and came to find out that the overtones that have been mentioned here are evident on my guitar as well. I selected the proper pickup setting, mine being an LR Baggs, and noticed that when I played in a percussive manner or attacked the strings aggressively that a high pitched, microphonic ring was easily heard. After trying a cheap, crappy Strat that they had rigged up with a GK-3 pickup I noticed that this overtone was not present. Not even close to being an issue. The overall sound of the unit did change slightly, it became a little more mid-rangey and honky, but no weird sounds. After plugging my Godin back in I noticed that if I held the palm of my picking hand on the strings, just behind the bridge, the ring went away. The LR Baggs system seems to be very hot and picks up anything and everything that's going on along the stringpath. Does anyone know if there is a setting in the VG to reduce the input or output level of the pickup in order to eliminate this problem ? From the looks of it, I'm not the only one with this issue. Thanks in advance.
