Those pics above don't come with my text--sorry. It's got a nice, nasty, metallic, funky, bluesy sound. I tune it E-b-e. I play only slide on it. Should I ever decide to put a pickup on it, what would be best? Piezo? Internal mike? My concern with piezo is feedback.
what some folks have done with license plate gits is put a mag pup on the side of the neck pointing at the sheet metal, picking up the resonator plate's vibrations as though that was the strings...
Okay--please forgive my ignorance, but I'm not sure what a mag pup is. Internal mike? And, when you say "on the side of the neck", do you mean inside the body? Also, where do I find internal mikes? StewMac? Thanks!
If your main concern is feedback , I think the piezo would be less prone than the mic.
Flatpup or Rod Piezo.
