Thanks for the comment on the workbench. Wish I could say it always looks that clean. Still have stuff on it that should go somewhere else, but haven’t figured out the where. What you didn’t see is all the clutter behind the workbench that is out of control!!! But it’s all good.

Mag pickup help

Posted on December 1, 2019 at 1:26pm 7 Comments

I have a cb gitty delta 3 pole pickup harness wired to the jack. I tried to add a volume knob but im not getting any sound? Is it as simple as adding a knob to a piezo? Ive done that without a problem. Also how close to the strings does the pickup need to be? 

Thanks
