I mean a Chapman Stick(style-instrument). If so, what's radically different in set up, pickups, etc?
All it should require is a nice straight neck, able to be very flat and low. And good hi gain pups, and a preamp wouldn't be a bad idea.
Oh course a good bridge would be another important piece. And frets will be the hardest to find, well at least for a stick, my Warr uses regular frets.
I've been thinking of building a touch style this spring.
Keep us posted, eh?
Pardon my sloppy posting 'skills'- what's the difference between the Stick's frets & 'regular' frets?
Stick frets are more like fret rods, and different feeling material from standard frets I believe.
That's just crazy! Are the frets on touchstyle instruments generally larger? If you could point me to a site w/all this info, I'll stop bothering you.
Have a good look at www.stick.com and you will have a lot of your answers. Re. frets, bridges, pups, w/e. Just look good on all pictures and read all the articles.
The info in there is quite full!
I'll check it out.
Just keep yourself covered from a legal standpoint. Chapman has a history of lawsuits.
I'd never make more than one or two at the most for own use, & they likely would not resemble any specific brand or model enough to cause the most lawsuit-happy lawyer to notice. When I say 'stick' it's only because I'm fairly in the dark on touch-style instruments. But thank you for the tip.
