    I started to comment on your original post that I had not been impressed with the piezo "acoustic" bridges that I had encountered, but since they were not the specific one you called out I figured it best not to say anything. I take it you didn't like it? What was the application, what didn't you like?

    I first tried the beautiful SH Piezo bridge and found the low strings had way too much "boom" and the high strings were thin and weak.

    OK, my experience probably would not have helped. I build a few electric guitars, but mostly acoustics. My son asked me to put together a LP Jr sort of thing with a tune-o-matic bridge with little piezo crystals in each saddle. It wasn't the Grapthtech, I don't remember the brand, but we both agreed that the "acoustic" sound was pretty much worthless. He has gone back to taking two guitars to his gigs
