Paul Yandell/New CGP pickup

Postby craigdobbins » Sun Sep 12, 2010 10:10 pm

Paul Yandell sent me this photo of a new pickup he made for his CGP. If you'll notice, the treble strings have a solid bar underneath, and the basses have adjustable screws. Paul says "It really sounds good I think more like Chet's Fingerstyle album."

I'm always trying to think of something differant this pickup is mono Chet always said the bars gave him a bigger note it's balanced really well and the treble strings have the slight edge like the pickup on the CG, it's something I have been thinking about building for some time, thanks paul

I assume TV Jones made that for you. Is he going to offer it for sale?

That's an interesting concept, Paul. I would like to hear it. Dumb question, but I assume you are pleased with the outcome?

Thanks,
Richard Hudson
