    Does anyone know where I could purchase piezo pickups, or a bridge with piezos installed?

    Man you ain't the only one. After I dug up that info on the F.A.A.S. system,
    I got to thinkin' :rolleyes:...This could be the basis for a "poor-man's Rob Allen".
    Get a light-weight bod from Warmoth (Alder or Mahogany) not routed for pups,
    cut with a "battery box" hole, and drilled for a Gotoh 201 bridge.
    Replace the Gotoh saddles with the F.A.A.S. elements, etc.

  6. That sounds pretty groovy!

    I think "groovy" is the key word here :D.
    It would be pretty cool, but I think there might be some extra work involved
    with the bridge. That is, to get those wires from the saddles to the control cavity.
    Some through slots between the saddle guides and then route a little channel
    in the body to group them underneath the bridge.
