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.

This is a type of magnetic pick up. There are many different configurations of it. You may be able to to use a flat one right on top. I think they call them flatpup. pick ups. Quite thin.

Flatpup or Rod Piezo.
