Guitar Rod Piezo & EndPin Jack NO-SOLDERING-REQUIRED Harness
What could be easier than installing this pre-soldered "plug and play" guitar rod piezo pickup harness into your acoustic guitar, Cigar Box Guitar or other home-made instrument?
We have designed these harnesses to be as absolutely easy to install as possible. Just drill a hole for the endpin jack, drill a hole for the rod piezo lead to come through the top of the instrument, mount both, plug the lead into the jack, and you're done! The rod piezo could also be glued to the underside of a cigar box lid, if you are building a cigar box guitar and you don't want to build it into your bridge. Best of all, there is no soldering to be done! Please note that the nut that mounts the endpin jack must be tightened from INSIDE the instrument - the strap button end of the jack does not screw off.
These piezo rods are 2 3/4 inches (69.9mm) in length, about 3/32" wide and 1/8" in height, and have 6 "piezo pads" that correspond with the 6 strings on a standard acoustic guitar. They can also be cut to shorter lengths if need be - see our how-to article on cutting rod piezos for more information.
Once you experience the ease and GREAT sound of these soldering-free rod piezo harnesses, you'll think twice about going back to any other way!
We also have these available with a shorter 4-string rod piezo for ukuleles, tenor guitar, cigar box guitars & more - see product number 50-062-01.
