  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This showed up the other day, but needed some time to settle in since it came from Ishibashi. I haven't given it a proper tidy yet, I'm waiting for some locking tuners to show up before I give it the treatment. Either way - it's in pretty good shape for an 18 year old fiddle. It plays really...

    Diagramming up my 2020 Rig Build of Doom and I am likely to buy a piezo equipped guitar to go along with it. I have never used a piezo equipped guitar. Is there any good reason to run the piezo through a different preamp? I'd be thinking an acoustic preamp. Does anyone do this? It would add...

    I have EMGs in my guitar with Graphtech Piezo guitar right now. But I wanna have some other passives instead. What do I do with the battery cable that I once had attached to the passives? I'm sort of confused what do with it
  4. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Has anybody installed these in their guitars and what do you think? Was it fairly simple or a pain in the ass? I have several gigs where I need to go back and forth between electric and acoustic sounds. Plus, I often blend the sounds. I'm currently using an a/b box with one side going to my tube...

    So err yeah... I saw this on eBay, put a bid down which was the reserve price and somehow won. It's an Ibanez RG2020X from 2000 and in its time, as you can see, it has had a fair few bumps and some serious playing, hence the fairly chewed up frets. I opened the gigbag to find it with a pretty...

    I wanna have some "acoustic" tones but I really don't wanna buy an acoustic guitar. So I'll get some piezo saddles and shit for the intended guitar. I've heard you gotta have thick strings to make it sound good but the guitar feels very nice with 10-46 and I don't wanna change it to something...

    OK folks, here it is the Kiesel Edition - K8 I had going on for the past 3 months. I came up with the reverse blue burst concept, today standardized as "Arctic" Here's a shot of the final product: Update: here's a quick video of me running this K8 through its paces (Lithium pickups and...

    I'd like to add one to my tele, and from what I know so far, I need new saddles and a pre-amp, likely from graphtech. Eh? I've seen a few kits here and there. What's the best and why?

    I've always wanted one of the piezo-equipped 7str Ibanezes, but missed the boat on buying one when they were available years ago. A little while back, I found an electronics wiz/guitar player who was modding Ibanez trems and adding (retrofitting, in the case of the EP7) piezos. I'd already...

    This NGD doesn't have very many pictures, but it comes with a story. As many of you know, I built myself a Warmoth Telecaster about 2 years ago, and included a Fishman Powerbridge in it. I've been loving the piezo/mag setup, and have been working on ways of simplifying my rig for ease of use...

    Any of you Musicman guru's out there know if there is any difference between the piezo systems in the various models? Particularly the Luke & the Petrucci? I just wondered if any were noticeably better or were they basically the same thing.

    The only thing I can seem to find online is the loaded version. I like the shields, but have absolutely no use for the piezo. :scratch:
