I've looked around a bit, and I couldn't find one, but if anyone could find one...


I'd like to try to wire these in passively: http://www.graphtech.com/products/b...tring?id=5eab90f6-ed32-4ed0-bd66-519c4641fd33

But I'd like to try to get it in this diagram: http://www.seymourduncan.com/images/products/electric/specialized/501025-110.pdf


But I have no idea what do wire it with. If anything, I usually use the bridge tone on ten, so if I could make that one a volume knob for the piezo. I hope I'm being clear enough, but I don't know. I'd like the regular strat knobs, but the bridge one could be the piezo, so if I don't want them, I just turn them to 0, and if I want them, I just turn them up. I know that that would mean they're on all the time, so I'd prefer a passive circuit and I could just turn up the volume to make them loud enough. I can't do any routing, but I do have a swimming pool rout in it right now, so space for a small thing shouldn't be that bad.

nope, you can't mix piezos right in with regular pickups, they're like oil and water electrically.

also, saddle piezos without the dedicated preamp sound like ass, weak and brittle with no low end.

the way to do it really is with a preamp; something like the fishman powerchip is reasonably unobtrusive and gives you the options to mix the piezos right in or split them stereo down a special cable, and either way provides the volume and fullness for the piezos.

the other option is to wire them to the ring connection of a stereo jack, which means you have to use the special TRS cable and a preamp downstream to get them to be usable.

Just use the graphtech acoustaphonic preamp. It is easy, I've done several. They include instructions.

The graphtech website also has diagrams which include passive wiring like you want.
