Roller bridge and Peizo pickups

Started by Tim Pannabecker. Last reply by Daniel Walter Jan 28. 21 Replies

I was thinking of using individual roller bridges for my 3-string that is setup with peizo and I don’t have room for a rail.  Will the individual roller bridge create enough vibration for the peizo…Continue

Shane, you deserve a holiday man :o)

Ok, Im Roosterman... I guess I always have a lot to say!
I run a B&B in the Scottish Highlands, UK, but spend most my time building CBGs - like the other guys, its an addiction of unhealthy proportions! Iv done my fair share of solid bodies too though, and have a potted musical history that includes playing piano, sax, flute, and yes, bagpipes! Oh, and guitar of course, though not very well. Im definately a builder rather than a player...

Anything I can do to help, drop me a line - like most guys here, I really enjoying helping out where I can

If you're new here, check out the chat feature too (little square symbol, bottom right, next to the bowling pin looking thing) - great for real time help or just shooting the breeze and putting the world to rights

All the best
Ben

Ted Crocker here. I build 'em better than I play 'em, but I'm working on that. I make my living crafting guitars, pickups, stomp boxes, guitar electronics and a lot of other weird and wonderful creations.

A lot of members here rely on me to give voice to their instruments, and a lot of their spouses & neighbors probably wish I would find another line of work ; )

Cigar Box Nation is an incredible resource for builders, players and fans. Just ask if you have any questions - me and many others are glad to help. I'll be your tour guide if you need a hand navigating around the nation.

We love to see pics and videos of your instruments so add 'em if you got 'em! Most of all HAVE FUN and welcome to your new addiction!

Shane, what a great idea! You're working over time.

Okay, I'm Josh Gayou and I've been a part of the nation for some two years now. A lot of you guys know me but I forget how many new people we take on on a daily basis.

I live out in CA with my wife and son. I'm 31. By day I work in the aerospace business (I've been doing some sort of aerospace software development since I was 23 - I started by writing software for helicopter flight systems). I'm a lead engineer on a project to bring broadband internet to passenger and business aircraft. Sometime if you want a real snore google Panasonic Global Communications Suite, and you'll see what I work on.

By night, I'm a custom guitar maker and owner of Smokehouse Guitars. You could say that I've enjoyed some small measure of success but how much is debatable as I'm still trying to just break even given all the tools and raw materials I invest in. Hopefully within the next few months I can get myself back in black...

I'm always happy to help out with any questions for new builders. If you happen to be around my way please stop in and say hi. I'll have hurt feelings if you don't :)
