I was looking for a more resonate wood for my next project. Found this company Luthiers Mercantile International. They describe the wood as low grade soundboards, that you can use for practicing inlays or joining. For what we do the stuff is really nice, and 20$ for 5 bookmatched sets it was worth a try. …Continue
I recently finished a 3 stringer with 2 pickups controlled by 2 volume pots,instead of a 3 way switch.Thanks to David L.for telling me about this idea (Stracciatella Mod). I used the coils from 2 Gitty Gold Foil pickups.Diodes are soldered between each pot and the jack.

It made a nice clean connection.

I recently finished a 2 string slider. I took apart a Gitty gold Foil pickup and mounted the coil in the lid. The coil is only a 1/4" thick and fit nicely in the lid, and sandwiched it between 2 pieces of a cut up sesame oil can from work. There was a bit of feedback at first so I took it apart and put a strip of electrical tape on both sides of the coil, that cut out most of the feedback. It is some what microphonic but not to bad. I grounded the pieces of can, very quite no string buzz.…Continue
