My GM-7 P(iezo) Project…


Building a Custom GM-7 with Piezo Pickups and a Fixed Bridge

It took me about half a year, but now it‘s finished: my brand new, ultra versatile workhorse guitar, the GM-7 P(iezo). I just wanted to share my happiness as well as some experiences, which I made during the building process. So I wrote a story about it, which you can download as PDF:

It contains information, images, a complete wiring diagram and a parts list:-)

Update: here is a short recording, three tracks (with two guitar tracks). The recording is done in GarageBand, the guitar is played through an AxeFX.  Since the piezos are new to me and I‘m not really what you‘d call an acoustic guitar player, I‘m not yet done with finding good settings for an “acoustic sound”. Anyway, I hope it will give you an idea of what is possible. Track 1 is just strumming three chords, track 2 is a little bit of improvisation, and track 3 is… well, a drum pattern :-)
