i have a bunch of stainless bedpans, 18, I bought to make guitars from and would like to have your options on what type , model, ect of pickup you think might work well. I have recently bought a resonator guitar that doesn’t have a pickup and find amount Reso players there are just a few they find acceptable with the general agreement that just using a mic is best but I still want to try some different pickups to see what I think. Any ideas and opinions welcome thanks

You’ll want a warmer sounding pickup to offset the bright sound that bed pan’s gonna produce. Try a flatpup style or juke shack from C.B. Gitty, they’re pretty affordable & sound great. Good luck on your build
