I was fortunate to pick up this little bad boy a few days ago. The square-neck thing is new to me and super fun to play. I could see myself getting lost in the lap-style guitar rabbit-hole for a while. This little guy has a tele-style (in appearance) neck pickup, but due to the high action that is required for lap style playing, the strings are a long way from the pickup. The pickup sounds quite nice, but I can't really hear much of anything coming from it unless I really crank up an amp; then I tend to get a lot of noise coming with the sounds.. Do any of you all know much about acoustic-electric resonators, and whether there's a better pickup I can put in with more output but without losing the tone of a lower output pickup? Are there taller pickups that would put the magnetic field closer to the strings? Would something like a single-coil sized humbucker boost the output signal? (Thinking along the lines of a lil '59 or something) All in all, it has been one of the most fun new guitar days I've ever had.
