Started this discussion. Last reply by BrianQ. Sep 15. 2 Replies

So I have a request from a musician to make a CBG with a piezo preamp and a single pole magnetic. I cannot figure out how to wire this as the preamp has a input jack already attached as does the…Continue

Hi guys and gals, Do I have to ground the mini humbucker if it comes with the tone and volume already harnessed in? Thanks for your help!Continue

I'm wondering if any of you out there have used this style bridge before? It's a rosewood platform with a bone nut inserted. Holes for 3 strings predrilled. I am thinking this style bridge must be…Continue

"Search Fender Deluxe Power Stratocaster, it mixed 3 pickups & a Fishman Power Bridge, which is loaded with piezos in the saddles. It has a lone preamp circuit & blends in via 5 way switch. I actually miss having that combo, it sounds…"

"You need a preamp that will accommodate both. The less expensive preamps will not be equipped to handle both. It needs the inner circuitry to handle 2 pickups with impedance mismatch. "

Mixing a magnetic single pole pick up with a piezo pre amp from cb gitty

So I have a request from a musician to make a CBG with a piezo preamp and a single pole magnetic. I cannot figure out how to wire this as the preamp has a input jack already attached as does the magnetic pick up. I am a visual learner so pics or videos would help. Also wondering if a under the saddle piezo would be better? I have read that these can be bad for sound and feed back when mixed with magnetics. I should mention that I like the idea of a 3 way switch and one input.Thanks for your…See More

"If done properly gluing with titebond is fine. Here's a pic of a 12 string guitar I built just glue holding that bridge on. JL, sounds like the glue held ok, it was the ply's in the timber that let go."

"I would think glue would fine on a 3 stringer. It should only be about 30-40lbs of tension tuned G2,D3,G3."

JL replied to Robbie's discussion Jili Bridges for 3 string
"Glue only is likely why it comes with a tag for plastic strings only. Bronze will rip it right off.  as a teenager I ruined a good Sears catalog 6 string with the wrong strings. the bridge, glue, and several layers of the plywood face dangled…"

"Hi also remember to secure the ends of cross braces to the sides if you want real strength/support.  My thought is that that a simple transverse brace/s  would provide enough support with maybe a bridge plate inside. Either way structural…"

Robbie replied to Robbie's discussion Jili Bridges for 3 string
"Any suggestions on what type of glue? 5 minute epoxy? The strings are fed through the  holes then over the bone bridge and I was thinking that would cause a lot of stress on the top of the box."
