I'd like to use my old Stradolin for some live work with my band. It is a cheap, 1960 plywood A model instrument. It plays easy and doesn't sound terrible. I don't think I want to spend the time and money on a pickup (unless there's an inexpensive, easy way you can suggest). Just wondering if I could just point a SM57 or Sennheiser 421 at it and get creditable results. Anybody have experience that can help me? P.
