Title: Peizio for electric
Post by: Barefoot Rob on July 08, 2010, 02:16:45 AM
OK maybe you can help me here.About 3 years ago I did an install of what I was told to be a power bridge pu.As I remember it was just your standard uts pickup with like 2" of copper foil attached.Now it didn't sound bad and I'm trying to limit the number of guitars I take because its an outdoor gig.If any of you know,have seen or point me in the right direction {and that does not include walking off a cliff or any other such suggestion} I'd really could use the help.I checked fishman,baggs and fender.Googled,binged and can't seem to find anything and like an idiot I didn't keep the info.Thanks...

ST I should of mentioned that its going on a Tele with a Bigsby.Come to think of it I'm more then likely the only insane person who would want to do this with a Bigsby never the less.I have checked those out.

Well after talking to fishman and baggs because of the Bigsby there is not anything out there unless I want them to try and make one but the dime is way to high.So I guess at this point I'm out of luck for now.

Yeah, most companies don't recommend using a piezo on a guitar with a trem because the tension at the bridge changes, and it messes with the piezo signal.

That wasn't the reason.The bridge for a Bigsbyed tele use a Mustang bridge and theyed have to figure out how to make saddles with a piezo in it then how to run the wire from them.I'm thinking of maybe going with a Barcus Barry that I can mount to the bottom of the bridge.Yes I'm thinking out side the box {sometime's called insanity}.
