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

"You in the US carry on doing your own thing Christopher, we in the UK eventually follow suit anyway don't we? After all, it's only taken us about 100 yrs to cotton to CBG's lol :D"

"Thanks! Cooking foil is sooo... CBG. I'm still stuck in the mode of: how do I set this thing up with a digital preamp? I'm not even sure if "tinfoil" was ever made of anything but aluminum- and why don't we in the States…"

"Robbie, you (& Korrigan) may remember I was installing a dual rail humbucker into the steel plate guitar. For your info I have had all sorts of unwanted buzzing, poor output etc from it which I didn't get when installing a humbucker into…"

"Great thoughts! After all, it is the sound that we personally like that we are all looking for. Some different than others. Mounting the magnetic pup under the plate sounds less intrusive on the plate but much more intrusive on the neck cutout for…"

"wait a sec!- I'm a raw beginner and trying to understand the difference with piezos. From what I understand, regular electromagnetic pickups only pick up vibrations from metal strings. That's why you can make an electric guitar from a…"

"Robbie, no need to cut the plate for a pup, just mount it UNDER the plate, barely touching and you can pick and chose to suit, it will pick up string and plate vibrations very well, and much more adjustable than a pup through the plate"

"I found all this information very valuable. I too, hate the thought of cutting into a plate for a pick up. MGB Mini Box buckers I have to look up. thanks a million everyone. I think I'll be going with magnetic pick up."

"More good advice thank you Korrigan. In my case no option now :)     ~~~ Robbie sorry didn't mean to hi-jack this post but I hope you find the info valuable"

Korrigan replied to Robbie's discussion Pickup options for license tag reso guitars
"The first one I made with a single coil sized rail humbucker and it was a pain in the butt. The next 3 with MGB mini box buckers. It's so much easier not to have to cut the plate, box and neck.  : )"

"Sounds like good advice Brian thank you. I forgot to say that they all sound good acoustically but the steel plate beats the others hands down & sounds old school. If I was to make any more i'd certainly source older steel plates."
