    Strings can make a difference. To me, The John Pearse 80/20 bronze, and ernie ball earthwood strings (also 80/20) sound better on an active piezo. I've had a few guitars with passive piezo pickups,...

    I'm not worried about the wire. Like you said, It's not hard to fix a rattle. I have a very large collection of used guitar parts. Much more than I will ever use, but when doing repairs, or building...

    I made some good progress this weekend. The necks are done as far as I'll go until I mount them to the bodies. On mine, I'm going to contour the transition.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm not committed to anything yet. I'll probably make a different eyelet board before I'm done that conforms better to the size of the components. I have seen a few schematics,...

    There's some progress here. I made the little eyelet board, and mounted the passive components. I put the sockets for the transistors on pigtails.
