I'm developing skills with my new router before I start my 34" EUB build, which gives me a chance to look at electronics. The main pickup will be an under saddle piezo, going direct out to a preamp externally. This is to minimise internal elements that might get in the way of retracting the end pin. I'd also like to add a magnetic pickup, again going direct to avoid internal components. Assuming I can keep string spacing appropriate, I have a spare P pickup, as well as J. Am I likely to be able to effectively angle a P pickup halves to get a good signal. Or would extremely staggered pole pieces on a J pickup work? If not I'll have to think about either dropping the magnetic, or a longer term goal of a four coil pickup.
