G'day all,

I received a cheap pre-amp in the mail today, & it came with a rod piezo. My question is, can this be glued to the bottom of the sound board like a disk, or would I be better off making a hardwood bridge & embedding it into that?  Or would it not make much difference either way?

That's exactly what I did with my ukulele set up, works well!

Hi again, this job came in yesterday, a mandolin with a bad sounding pickup system. Customer suggested replacing the pots, but I thought I would check the pickup first........this is what I found.

Now to do the repair.

Wow! I'm guessing the string pressure caused the bridge & pickup piece to bend, all  which sort of floats, causing the rod to push out through the bottom?

Hi Mitch, yep you are dead right.

Here are some photos of the repair.....
