Dear All

for my sins, I'm afraid I play 5 string banjo.

After much nagging from my wife, I am attempting to build a sweeter sounding instrument.

Not wishing to learn guitar, I would like to fit a 5 string banjo neck to a solid guitar type body.

I have built the neck, the body I have yet to make.

The neck has 25 frets with a 32 inch scale. (Pete Seegar long neck).

The distance from the last fret to the bridge is 7 inches.

The whole exercise is for an electric guitar sound.

If anyone has information re. a pickup for a 5 string instrument

I would be very grateful.
