My Google Fu is so weak.  I've been looking for an excellent flat unit (no body curve) for a build.  Can't seem to find a good one, but I know they are out there.  What kind do you all prefer and where do you get them at?

Thanks in advance!

Much thanks to everyone!

great solution from tafffy. you can also passively control a piezo rod with a capacitor across the input. different value different tone. 

Hi, thanks for your comments guys. 

Tip: if you build a number of different cbg's for your own use, to save some expense what I did some years ago was to build the pre-amp you see in photo into small box, a la stomp box, and use it for many guitars.

Also  if you are demoing to a potential customer play though it, it makes things sound a lot better, and shows the potential of a CBG.
