I figured the title would get your attention...even make some mad. But I did in a way build an Esquire with 7 pick-ups. What I built is an Esquire with the traditional bridge pickup, and I also included GraphTech Ghost Saddles, each having a piezo transducer. That's seven pickups, and many unique sounds and tone. I came up with a great way to hide the wires from the transducer saddles and installing the electronics, so I figured I'd share my build. This will be a few posts since I have to attach each photo separately. The reason for the build… I’ve owned a MIM tele for the last 20 years. I put a Seymour-Duncan Jerry Donahue bridge pickup in that guitar as well as a 4-way switch and that guitar just sounded great. But I only used it at one gig. The reason; that guitar weighed 8.6 pounds. I never thought about the weight when I purchased the guitar, but after just one gig that guitar sat in my rehearsal space for practice purposes (seated) and over time got played less and less. Eventually it got put away and I just forgot about it. I play in a 90’s alt/pop rock band and I swap back and forth quite a bit between an electric (usually my pawn shop tele) and an acoustic-electric (Eastman AC422 with LR Baggs). My lead guitar player was pushing me to get a Fender Acoustisonic (he plays a Taylor T5z) to reduce instrument changes, but I just couldn’t get past the $2,000 price tag – or the looks. I was looking for an alternative to the Acoustisonic and had gotten to the point where I Googled “how to make an acoustic sound like a tele”. Embedded in the search results was info on the Ghost Saddles as well as similar systems by Fishman and others. I had no idea that piezo bridges & saddles were a thing as an aftermarket part. I started searching ways to integrate the parts into a tele, and I really didn’t find any info. Lots of sound/tone reviews…but no howto’s. And the guitars I saw online were not well integrated – I could see the wires from the saddles and that was a non-starter for me. I ordered the Ghost Saddles (I had a bridge with 2-3/16 spacing and they had saddles for that) and their Acousti-Phonic electronics kit with pickup select switch and acoustic pot with push-pull volume/tone and figured that I would find a way to integrate it all. What follows is my tale of how I integrated the Ghost system in a tele body.
