|Installing a pickup on a Dobro?|
Has anyone got any suggestions on how to put a pickup on one of these. From reading it seems the best and least invasive way is to put a quality piezo disc on the resonator. Has anyone here ever done it? Any tips or suggestions. I donít want to mess this one up![ATTACH=CONFIG]49688[/ATTACH]

|If you do a search for electric dobro, or electric resonator guitar?|
Looks like the standard place is at the neck.
I wound and installed a pickup for one once, but the hole was already routed at the neck.

|Here's an opinion from a resophonic builder:|
For an awesome electric tone, install a P90; to sound like a resonator guitar, use a mic.

Will the Schatten system be compatible?

|For anyone thatís interested... this is a ďbiscuitĒ bridge. Schatten discontinued the pickup I was considering because some players said it muted the resonator a bit because of the mounting scheme. What they have now is something called the NR-2 or the NR-2 Pro. Itís a piezo strip that simply attaches to the bridge with double sided tape. I donít want to drill the body since you canít install an end pin jack for a jack mount. The Pro version has a little box with a jack and a volume control that you also mount with 2 sided 3M tape. I think this is the way Iím going to go...|
