Hi All

Where is the best location of the pizo pick up?

On the neck (inside the body) or the inside of the lid - near the bridge or towards the nut?

Or some where else altogether

Thanks!

Scott

If you can open the box, just stick it with double sided tape and experiment a bit till you find the sound you like, then permanently fix it, in general though, most seem to put it under the lid, near the base side of the bridge

Thanks Darryl

What darryl said.........

Really, just stick it inside the box under the bass side of the bridge then play for a while and see how it sounds. You can then experiment with moving it around inside the box and listen. It may take a while, but it's worth tweaking until it sounds just right.

Thanks Tom
