    The output jack will be in the same place as the normal strandbergs. I thought about using it for mayby a volume or tone controll. I also thought of the idea for a blen between piezo and a miced sound since it will be completely hollow. Might be interesting. My last idea was to put a smapp reverb effect in the guitar at that spot. So if I ever use it in an environment with no verb at all and a bare bone sound system I still have that verb touch.

    Mmmmm.....
    How does a nylon string guitar with piezo pickup sound through a guitar amp?

    I've tried a big bodied acoustic steel string that way, but it was a bit weird because I couldn't separate the acoustic sound and the (overdriven) amp sound.

    sweet jesus walterson. This is such an elegant, classy instrument. I love the sound as well. From my experience with chambering and holllowing, which is little, you can hollow a huge amount before getting any feedback. Not entirely sure how it affects the amplified tone but i do hear some 'airyness' to the cleans. under distortion it all goes out the window but still...

    and i love the pictures. keep the builds coming!!! they are inspiring !

    Very nicely done, I see you being in Germany must have inspired this axe as it's a very Warwick-esque wood selection :)
