Seems odd thats its just the one string.

I tried what you suggested. Saddle was flat and not stuck. But I did find something, and maybe you know what this is....I dont know what the parts are called. Anyway, I took out the saddle and looked at what I guess would be called the contact strip. Its like a thin piece of hairpin or something on that order which lays down in the slot. What I noticed is that this strip has a red membrane, possibly some kind of contact matrial? Anyway, this membrane was on the area below the other strings, but not on the area below the G string. This is a two piece saddle with the E-G, then smaller B-E saddle. Could this be the problem? I'm obviously not an electric wiz. I'm thinking the contact may be hindered, and would there be something I could put on it....foil? Just guessing. After tinkering with it, I was able to get a little sound through the PA, but not anywhere equal to the other strings. Thanks for your suggestions and help.

I do see a silverish color where its not red. Not really silver, but not black. As far as humming, it was nasty plugged in through my guitar amp, but thats for an electric. Through the PA, there was a little, but I think more due to needing knob adjustments. After I did that, it was okay.
I could send you some pics tonight if you dont mind. I've tried to upload on this site before, but never quite got it. If I could email a couple shots to you that would be better. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and then I could send you a couple photos. Thanks a lot....I have a feeling I am shop bound with this..
