Thanks Danny, in my experience mag pickups are best for these & piezo's a no-no. I plug in anyway but if you play it acoustically surface mounted p/u's are beneficial rather than holes cut which affect acoustic resonance.

sounds great I guess I am definitely going to have to add a single coil to my LPG's

Vinnie you're too kind still a looong way to go on the sliding but I'm getting there

Derek Thanks for the nice comment. I like this one too sounds/plays far better than the others I have hence the search for perfect pickup tones

Nice sliding Denbo. Guitar sounds nice and growly metallic. I like the black plate.

Thanks Richard it's sounding much better now & I can drag a wide range of tones from it with the Vox. The Vid also exposes my heavier rock passion weakness :D
