Sounds good

29.10.2015
I got this system to put in my PRS SE custom 24. Normally you would need to exapnd the cavities to fit an extra 9v battery and the curcuit board but I found that if you use a tremol-no to block the trem you can remove the springs in the tremolo cavity to fit the circuit board and you don't need to lower the bridge to the body which allows you the pass the cable through the gap under the bridge down to the tremolo cavity and the battery is easy enough to fit somewhere it the cavity with the pots. I skipped the switch and had the tone pot become volume for the piezo. I think that the easiest type of guitar to install it in would be a strat or tele since you can cover the expanded cavity up easily with the pickguard and you can drill holes in the pickguard for the switch without the fear that you can never revert the changes. You can just replace the pickguard.

When it comes to sound it sounds good, I have no complaints. There are quite a few sound demos on youtube and I'm sure someone has done an A/B test with a real acoustic if you want to hear for yourself.

Amazing sounding however...

This Graph-Tech preamp, along with the matching bridge makes your electric guitar sound almost like a real acoustic. In fact people who don't know about this technology might even think your miming on your electric. It provides a nice warm tone, with no noise and can blend beautifully with the magnetic pickups.

I had this pre-amp, along with the bridge, fitted to my GIbson Les Paul Traditional by my luthier in Denmark Street, I opted to go with the same control setup as the Les Paul Blackwater as I did not want a toggle switch cluttering up the top and gibson were happy to provide me with the schematic as Graph Tech don't have this wiring diagram on their site. I also had my luthier add a bypass push-pull for the pre-amp.

However while testing the wiring in the guitar something touched and shorted out the pre-amp board resulting in them having to buy me another, so if you are fitting this yourself be very careful with what you are doing and don't power it on until you are certain of the wiring unless you want to have to buy it again.

Another thing I recommend is that bypass switch, as without it when the battery dies your guitar no longer works at all with the pre-amp engaged, which it always is unless you have the bypass switch. Also if you play with a medium to high amount of distortion the pre-amp adds a horrible hiss to the signal that can even be heard over your playing. So when I'm not using the acoustic sound, I always have it bypassed and I highly suggest everyone does this too as it is in no way a pleasant sound.

Although even with it's caveats I would highly recommend this if you need an acoustic sound sparingly in your music and don't want to switch guitars between songs. Just make sure you have that bypass switch fitted or it might be 'sound off' at the gig one day...
