"Those MIJ guitars and their pickups. Some of those guitars were built very good and some weren't worth buying. The pickups were good most of the time. The Goldfoils and the large and tall single coils with screw poles were fantastic."

1930 pie dishes sound ok too and you can put a magnetic pup under them with a ni mag as they are steel I think.. (unless they are tin?)

I think I could almost turn anything into something and get a tune out of it.. it just might not be good.. love that resonator thanks for sharing sorry for my spaming your page..

Poo Stick Washingup Bowl ResonatorNothing goes to waste in our house lol...(fake plastic dog poo and a stick from the park)... i built this to do jimi hendrix and burn it but i liked it too much to burn it!

Cool resonator, did you every see my vibrocoil pickup works the same way

also a old tin scales top in a guitar sounds great, also I have tried mica sheet and the tpoilet seat resonator with a dexian front, I also made a steel fronted acoustic too... steel is good use 5 small holes is all you need and man its loud... the white reso has 4 small holes and sounds great...shane wagstaff build , probably his best ever... love the sound of steel and metal... washing up bowl and old tin scale top and stick from the park lol... works though  (see my poo stick guitarfor a laugh)

Yeah they look pretty neat Andries I checked them out on the Thomann website easily installed like a piezo too if you want "invisible" externally.
