Paul Craig replied to Richard's discussion Laminated necks, but maybe different
" I don't see why it wouldn't work. You could turn them on their side and add 2 boards of similar size on each side and glue them all together. Then cut out a neck with a degree headstock. Lots of ways to do it."

"Active pickups have come a long way since the 80’s, I used to hate them, but they’ve resolved all the pesky noise issues since then? EMG has championed the active game ever since "

Paul Craig replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Oooh, Active Pickups. I had a EMG 85 in a Strat style back in the 80's and 90's. I should've switched to an 81 because the 85 had way to much distortion. Hope they work out for you Taff, interested in how they work out. I haven't…"

Paul Craig replied to B W's discussion Do magnetic pickups and onboard preamps mix?
"All the info I found on that preamp was for piezo only. Heres a diagram for wiring the piezo to the preamp and magnetic pickup separate to a 3-way switch, but you could substitute the switch with a blender knob."
