Paul Craig replied to Will "KOOL DOG HOOCH" Bonner's discussion Piezo disc under fretboard
"It seems that it would have to have a big cavity in the neck or body for a pickup in the pocket. If it was in the neck, I would think that a large cavity in the neck would create a weak area that could break under the string pressure. It makes more…"

Paul Craig replied to Will "KOOL DOG HOOCH" Bonner's discussion Piezo disc under fretboard
"The way to do it is to lay the piezo in the neck pocket(between the neck screws) and draw a circle around it. Route/cut /chisel a cavity that's just deep enough so the piezo crystal doesn't break when the neck is bolted in place. Cut a…"

Paul Craig replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Ideas for supporting nuts
"I've been using a bolt/screw for a nut on my CBG's for awhile now. I use a half-round file to make a groove for the screw. I usually add a drop of super glue so it doesn't fall off when changing strings. Gluing or screwing a piece of…"

Paul Craig replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Strap button placement will help. You know that such a long neck on a small box will be an issue, so it may require a block of wood to be added in the box or on the rear side to offset the weight and balance things out."

Lonman replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"Thank you Paul for this comment. I had no idea as I had not read about this issue when reading about basses.  I have not placed the strap buttons yet, so now I know what to look out for."

François replied to Paul Craig's discussion What's on your workbench?
"In the ad for the circuit I got, they say that resistor R23 is the reverb depth control. If you remove the resistor and solder a 20k-50k pot on the S-G-G solder points you can control the effect."

Sunday
Paul Craig replied to Will "KOOL DOG HOOCH" Bonner's discussion Piezo disc under fretboard
"If you put on in the neck pocket area, you do have to have some pressure from the neck to make it work. It picks up the vibrations from the neck that flow through the whole guitar. You get a very woody tone without the sometimes harsh string tone…"

"The MA-104 is the one I got. I just changed that input cap to a 2-way switch with the original .047 on one side and a .1 on the other side. The speaker was a large Subwoofer from a TV Surround Sound System. With the Gain turned down and the tone at…"
