"Since I ended up with the bridge spanning over the characters on the plate rather than a flat surface, the rod is imbedded between the bridge and saddle. Getting ready for another build soon using a pie tin for a resonator, hoping to have the piezo…"

"I built mine with a piezo rod and placed it under the bridge. I'd certainly recommend having it touching the plate if possible."

"Great work Taff (as always). Looks like you reworked the finish to get away from the sunburst, or was that just the lighting in the picture faking me out? Curious how you went about that."

""Gauge of strings help too." Stevie Ray Vaughan thought so (13-60 set).  Of course, a slinky set of strings would have not held up to his style of playing."

Paul Craig replied to MadGomer's discussion What affects tone?
"Correct, and also the area where the player picks has a bit to do with it too. Picking close to the fretboard gives a darker tone than picking towards the bridge. Gauge of strings help too."

Taffy Evans replied to MadGomer's discussion What affects tone?
"Hi again, I forgot to mention this earlier, but Paul touched on it by saying the player also has an effect on tone. Some areas worth a mention are, the type of material, and thickness of the plectrum, playing with fingers, and the direction/angle…"
