A 1994 Godin Multiac nylon string guitar in the shop for issues with amplified string-to-string balance from the pickups. The pickups are six individual saddles that are set into the bridge's saddle slot. I ordered a new set of pickups and swapped each one out for a new one as each pickup's output in the set is calibrated. Check the video below for the pickup swap.

A noisy pickup was found to be the cause of a loud buzz / hum while playing unless the tone was rolled completely down. The pickup was both screwed and glued to the pickguard, so heat was required to remove the pickup. The player chose to replace the Kent Armstrong pickup with a Bartolini 5J. Unfortunately, Bartolini only offers a fingerboard mount so I needed to make a custom pickguard mounting bracket out of brass.
The fret ends were sharp in the cutaway so they were dressed and the guitar strung up with flats.
This guy was finally picked up after 2 years (!). I reglued the bridge, repaired a split in the headstock and glued up a loose tailblock-to-top seam. There was also a loose top brace and the undersaddle pickup was humming so it needed to be replaced.
