    The problem with that is I don't think the nylon strings would pick up properly with the traditional pickup in the neck, if you were going to go the classical guitar route. Isn't part of the equation the fact that electric guitar strings are metal, so there is something to work with the magnets in the pickup?

    excellent point - I have some silk and steels - I wonder if a pickup would "read them " ? probably only the wounds ?

    And barely, since they're wound on non metal cores

    So cool!

    Reminds me of the Fender Acoustasonic but I'm not sure if it can do nylon sounds for flamenco playing.

    Wonder if this is that much different than what the Variax circuits were?

    I'd have to run phosphor bronze to get a response from a bourbon - With nylon I can only get a piezo to work ?

    this is a interesting project
