crackle guitars gear

Finally gathered the gear for the crackle guitars project - the problem being that the strings are also contacters for the crackle circuit, so they have to be isolated from each other and have separated contacts on the body to connect to the electronics one by one.

We decided to use Sung Il Tune-o-matic bridges with Graph Tech teflon saddles and string-thru-body system - the ferrules will be the contact points. Otherwise we have Wilkinson tuners. We recycle the pick-ups of the base guitars.

Probably what I'm saying doesn't make sense to most people - that will be more clear in a few days, since we will have a crackle guitar working session on the week-end.
