"Yes, there is more of an "airier" sound to a hollow body. The reason is the vibration of the hollow body also affects the vibration of the strings. That being said, the more you crank up the pickup with distortion, the more that gets…"

Hey Skeesix, I received my prewired pickup and jack yesterday. Fast delivery. Thank you very much for the directions, too.

Great job. Thanks again.

Skeesix, the pickup on your slide guitar instructionarl video sounds nice & crisp. Whats your secret? Do you have a decent amp? (All I have is a crappy Honeytone...)

Hi Skeesix - Thanks for leaving a comment with my last vid. You asked how I got the vocal effect - its not very clear from the vid but I'm using an old telephone ear-piece as a microphone. Inspired by Bluesbeaten Redshaw and Bol Log III. The signal is then routed via some distortion, a bit of compression and then a little reverb was added. 

Glad you liked the vid and here's wishing you a wonderful 2011.
