" Late to the party, I'd get a Gitty bomb, if they were available, but how many ohms would it take to achieve these results? I won't do business with MGB."

"Going back to basics usually identifies issues. My apologies if these are things you've already done. 1. Measure from the nut to the 12th fret. This should be exactly 1/2 your guitar's scale length. 2. Measure from the nut to the bridge.…"

"I ordered the Lucky13 flat pickup and installed it under the box lid. It had great power at picking up the string even through the box lid. The one thing I did notice was that the pickup was very phonic, much like a piezo installation. In noticed…"

"The longer neck looks correct for a banjo-like appearance. It also gives you more octaves available to fret. I have gone to "long-neck" on most builds just to get my hand (slide) up to the 24th fret and a bit beyond. Great looking build."

Flat bucker under box top. Any Success?

I searched "Ghost Pickup" and found a few entries from people who tried the Wicked Bucker under the box top. Apparently it was not particularly successful.I'm just checking in to see if anyone has successfully installed a wicked bucker under the box lit with strings about 1/4" above the lid.It seems that the Gitty Bomb pickup is no longer available and the wicked bucker is about 3.8 Ohms.I want to keep the box top clean so a surface mount pickup tends to spoil it.ThanksSee More
