My first build was straight out of Poor Mans Guitar love it but now I want a fretted hot rod! My 1st question is. I'm going to use the Gitty Bucker at the neck and I was wondering if a piezo at the bridge would compliment the sound, or is a valid option? With that being said. Using a three way switch for control two volume pots and a psycho knob, should I use a 250k for the piezo and  a 500k for the bucker? Next would the addition of tone knobs be a legit option or overkill? Or? Follow the K.I.S.S. principle and dump the piezo run the Gitty Bucker Volume ,Tone, Psycho knob?

Thanks

I like using the mag pup, piezo and psycho knob.  I control the amount of piezo vs Mag pup with volume pots and the psycho knob as the tone.  This was a good way for me to get a very versatile git.  There are some very talented harness builders that can do many things, but I like the trinity that you mention.  I like using the mag pup and piezo together, just in varying amounts so I blend instead of going solo on either pick up or a fixed 50/50 combo.

enjoy the obsession,

Tim

Pot value 250 or 500 K?

500 k pot for Humbucker,  250k pot for single coil and piezo.  If you are not sure you can always go with a 300k pot

Thanks I'm on it
