Is the pickup still wired straight to the output jack?

I made a mechano thing for my banjo to cradle a pick up over it, it worked, sounded like a banjo run through an amp I guess...

unfortunately at uni I don't have my mecano :( which Is sort of a good thing cos I know I'd spend my whole time doing stuff like that and not studying!

It might make it easier to mount it so it doesn't damage the guitar but still does it's job, and it wouldn't necessarily have to be near a soundhole.

As far as putting one in your reso, it certainly is a pretty big commitment if you have to cut up the guitar. I want to put a pickup of some sort in my old archtop, but it doesn't have a raised fret board, so I'd have to cut some holes and just can't do it. I don't want to risk messing up the acoustic sound of that guitar. Maybe you could find a shorter pickup that you could just stick to the top with some two-sided tape? An old dearmond gold foil, perhaps? Resos do sound pretty awesome with pickups in them. I still have a Washburn Eric Sardinas signature with a mini-humbucker and it has such a unique sound.

I ended up mounting the ears inside the guitar because there wasn't enough string clearance to mount it on top of the soundboard. I just wired the pickup right to the jack because I didn't really expect it to sound all that good. I was really surprised when I plugged it in. It has a very well balanced tone. It's bright enough that I can get some nice almost twangy sounds out of it, but still dark enough to keep it from being too harsh. I just have a light set of bronze strings on it now, but I'll slap a heavier set of nickel strings on it some time soon.

Sounded great through the little Kustom Tube 12 I was playing at the music store I work at...and hang out at on days I'm not working...like today. It sounded very nice through the Univox Super Fuzz clone I had with me, too. It may give my old Danelectro Convertible a run for its money as far as my go-to funky electric-acoustic is concerned, but I think the Dano will still be my first choice. We'll see, though.

I'll try to get a video or sound clip worked up this weekend, but here's a picture for now.
