    This one……. Had Rio Grande Texas BBQ’s for a while, then decided to jump off a cliff and rout out under the custom pick guard and install a Sustainiac. Front pickup is the driver that I disguised and matched the rear PAF with the same treatment. It’s my BiggsFix Frankenstein

    Does a piezo count?

    my much butchered pro Jet has 3 BT Filtertrons plus a piezo bridge with its own volume and output

    Yep. Took the BroadTrons out of my G2420T, put a MojoTone Fat MojoTron in the bridge and a DiMarzio Bluesbucker in the neck. Vast improvement.

    No, but I've had a hankering for an ES335 lately.

    Try a CS 336F. It's worth the extra $.
