Simple build

"That is a fairly plain box and a clean build, but not really simple.   Nice materials and work.  It came out looking great.   I like your builds a lot, but sometimes think they would sound better with the saddle moved…"

Mag pickup help

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