I think if you were to go to Ebay and/or Etsy you could set and average price for your style build...and go from there. Just offering ideas. I been selling my rod peizo builds for 160.00 can....that's my general asking price....people don't seem to squabble over hat price too much..

Cool.  I have only used a piezo rod once.   I've done a lot of disc piezos, but seem inclined to mag pups here recently.   Will go check out that song that inspired Dirty Red.

Thanks and hello. Nice work you are doing. Don't let " Oily" fool you, he is a friggin' genius at this stuff!

Friend req accepted. I am by no means a building guru, more of a player; but after having been here on CBN for a coupla years, I have picked up a fair number of building tips. Ask away, and if I can't provide a decent answer, we'll find someone who can.
