Ghost in the machine!

This week we installed a Ghost system into a Fender Stratocaster.  This system allows the user to plug into a Roland or Axon MIDI or synth unit, and play pianos, drums, clarinets, or any other sound imaginable, with your guitar!  Since it’s directly sensing the string via a piezo element under each string, it responds much faster than the standard magnetic pickup route.  Of course, it requires a bit of routing and wiring to install one of these, but not impossible if you have the right tools and the know how.

The piezo bridge (note the fully shielded cavity):

The 13 pin jack (which we inset and flush mount to the body):
