  1. yeh i never thought anything about it having steel strings ,yes it has tuners for nylons but they were definatly steel strings ,all adds to the charm i guess ,ha ha pre-op, by the way i went in the shop the other day to see it but it had gone ,ah well never mind .
  2. when i strummed the strings while it was still on the wall hanger it was tuned to some open tuning ,i could imagine a blues slide player maybe.
  3. I came across this Guitar in a Cash Convertor shop in a town near me ,i didn`t try it out cause it was attached to the wall stand with a cable tie .it looks like some kind of speaker mounted on the body the pickup was also mounted above and looking down on the strings the pickup also had a volume and tone knobs attached ,the strings weren`t impeded by the pickup and the strings rang out lovely to some open tuning ,i think a lot of love went into this guitar and it looked quite sad seeing it in this kind of shop,i wonder what happened to the owner.
  4. A friend of my brother does these https://www.mojopickups.co.uk/
  5. Hi Howard ,very moving lyrics and haunting melody ,the thought war is terrifying and even more so for children and parents of young children i should imagine.You put it across very well.
  6. Thanks deepend ,yes it`s not a bad sound ,it is direct into the computer though and i know from havin plugged electric s in direct that the tones are very limited into the computers .
  7. Hi there here`s a version of Chuck Berry`s Memphis Tennessee recorded with a strat pickup stuck in the sound hole and going direct into the computer in one side of the stereo and a mic for the voice which also picks up some of the guitar into the other side of the stereo .The soundhole pickup is direct with no fx and more or less sounds just like one of my electrics would the strings appear quite balanced i did raise the EQ by a couple of db from about 220 hertz down to bring the bass strings up a tad.
  8. pickups with screw adjustable poles can help equalize the strings
  9. Oh by the way ,it`s nice to put a face to the voice Howard ,nice to meet you .i always wondered if you might have being Roger Waters.... under cover, ha ha ,you do sound like him at times,that is meant as a compliment.
  10. Hi deepend,i did wonder about the bronze strings working with a regular electric guitar pickup ,would it or won`t it ?, but i was suprised at how well the strat pickup did work in that situation, i mean it out performed the pick up that was intended to be put in the soundhole,so the only place that is going is in the bin(trash ).
