Hi Kevin,   Thanks for your kind words on Cigar Box Guitar Song.  I was just looking at your builds again.  You were quickly doing advanced stuff: Peg heads, finger boards,  braced tops, nice fret markers.

 

I've been out in the shop working on a small box, short scale 2 string, a simple build.  It's going so good that at the moment, I wish I had planned a fretted 3.  Looked to switch and I'd put 2 tuner holes in such that it ruins chances for a 3.  Oh well,  the guy I have it in mind for needs as simple a git as he can get!

That  number 6 is a handsome build.  But I like the looks of 4 too.  How they play and sound is the big thing.

Hi Kevin. Thanks for the very kind comment. I've not seen any mention of uneven response from piezo pickups to different strings. Only that they tend to sound a bit treble heavy and hollow. I'm quite pleased with the configuration that I used on this bridge, but I still balance it with the magnetic pickup which is warmer. The two together produce a really nice sound (at least to my taste).

Have you asked on the CBG wiring group? I'm sure you will get some useful suggestions.

All the best. John

glad to friend you.... everyone has opinions... some are better, experience helps.... I have 267 builds, plus lots of kits for workshops and am sure I don't know it all.

 

If I can ever lend a hand, let me know...

 

the best,
