So my License Plate Reso is not selling. Don't get me wrong, it looks as cool as hell. I just don't think I like the way it sounds. So I am going to do something about it. I am going to modify it into something else that I can use. I have a really nice Reso built by Shane Wagstaff who is also on The Nation. It's a sweet sweet sounding box. So I will have a go a modding the License Plate Reso myself into a non Reso with a mag Pup.
Here is the plan. I am going to take out the resonator cone and sound well. I am going to replace the bridge with a simple floating bridge at the same point as the biscuit bridge is now. between the two '1's' on the number plate, I will mount a humbucker pickup by cutting through the number plate and attaching it to the neck stock below. a simple tone and volume put will be on the side of the box somewhere. Possibly with chicken head knobs. This should give me something that will sound OK with or without amplification and will look the dogs bollocks.
