My next 4 builds

"All nice. I sure like the wood on blacky. Seems like I often end up using the bottom of the box for the guitar top. I should do the pretty tops more often."

Mag pickup help

Posted on December 1, 2019 at 7:26pm 5 Comments

I have a cb gitty delta 3 pole pickup harness wired to the jack. I tried to add a volume knob but im not getting any sound? Is it as simple as adding a knob to a piezo? Ive done that without a problem. Also how close to the strings does the pickup need to be? 

Thanks
