Dear Sheldon, I was considering changing the Glock preamp on my Z2 in order to obtain a more coloured sound, something like Kubicki electronics. Can You send me information on the impedence of the pick ups? They are FD4, with series parallel capability. Another question: as You already use CNC for bodies, did You consider making an Ergal body instead of wood? If yes, how do You feel about it? Many companies mill the body, but a dear friend of mine was able to make a mould for a body shape specific. The material was aluminium - magnesium, the same used for the rims of racing motorbikes. Sounded great indeed. You could make a unique mould for the Z series, and use different PickGuards for accomodating the configurations Z1, Z2, and Z3 pick ups. Thanks a lot in advance for the information! PS: I am really waiting for Your DW strings in NICKEL.

The pickups are a medium impedance. They are compatible with every bypass pre-amp that I know of. I've thought about metal, composite, cast epoxy microbead, fiberglass, high-density foam, etc bodies, but haven't exhausted the possibilities of wood ones yet.

Long live wood!! Who wants a clanky dobro with 4 or 5 strings? :D Wood is alive, vibrant, it feels and sounds right in all the varieties from oak to maple to walnut or mahogany etc.

Well, I'm getting this steel bodied bass in a couple days (after ~1 year since the first phone call). The 4 position rotary switch might be familiar to you guys ;) [img:3h4cbyib]http://www.loiclepapesteelguitars.com/IMG/jpg/steelmbass_scratch_silver_004.jpg[/img:3h4cbyib] More : http://www.loiclepapesteelguitars.com/s ... 53&lang=en
