Lizardhands Posted January 4, 2009 Report Share Posted January 4, 2009 Can anyone help me with the feasibility of a wiring system please. I am in the process of commissioning an 8-string guitar of a similar fashion to the Charlie Hunter Novax guitar (but with different tuning/scales etc). I have found someone who is able to make me a hexophonic 8 string pickup which I'd like to combine with a normal p-bass pup and three outputs. I'd ideally like to have the hex pickup send all 8 strings blended to the mono guitar output, with the option to cut out the lower strings if a jack is connected to the bass output. I'd guess something like a switch jack would be needed. In addition, I'd like to be able to send all 8 strings separately out via something like the 13-pin guitar synth plug. I have no intention or need to do synth/midi work, but this seems like the most available and accessible cable solution, and from there I would be able to make a breakout box to split the 13-pin into 8 jacks. With 13 pins, I'd guess I could have a signal from each string, and then a common ground with pins to spare; would this work? or do I need separate ground signals for each string? So I would hopefully have three output options (only one at a time) 1) hexophonic mono out 2) hexophonic mono and bass mono 3) split strings via 13-pin. Is this feasible? or even possible? I'd like to work this all out and spec the electronics before approaching the luthier. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
