    I know fender was connecting an capacitor to bridge pickup for get Nancy tone. I will order a stainless steel single piece laser cut tele in coming weeks. Bridge will be like bone bar + holes and the fingerboard will be rosewood. I will order fret installation from a lowest cost luthier.

    Now I ordered 5 piezo circular sensor from robotics site and I am thinking to connect a nancy capacitor.

    Why all this ? I havent got a dime and this process is ultra cheap.

    Does extremelly sensitive piezo sensor sound effected by capacitor ?

    Piezo electronics have a different range of considerations than electro-magnetic pickups. You wouldn't want to treat them the same way.

    It sounds like an unusual and somewhat complicated project. It would be easier to understand exactly what you are planning to do, if you would post some physical drawings and an electronic schematic.
