Hi Doc. This is a just a thought from looking at the .pdf. Did you buy the 
cord with the TRS and XLR, or did it come with the guitar? I ask this because 
you can wire up XLR's as balanced or unbalanced. The unbalanced version has 
the screen pin linked to one of the others, and would effectively short out 
one of the signal wires, and would no doubt create a problem if connected to 
a balanced input. This has probably nothing to do with your problem, but 
sometimes very simple things can be easily missed. Nigel.
