Hey guys, this week in physics we have to make an instrument for an assignment and I chose to make a lap steel guitar. When planning it I decided, "Hey, why not electrify it?" I've heard some things about making a simple pickup out of a magnet and some wire, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it. What kind of wire should I use? (that 42 gauge stuff on normal pups is NOT ideal for me.) How strong of a magnet do I need? How much wire do I need? How do I hook it up to (just) an input jack? If you could be of any help that would be great. This is due on Thursday, so time is of the essence.
