Any recommendations on a pickup? I'm wanting to turn this into an acoustic/electric but have no idea what pickup would work best.
Thanks guys
here is a link to a thread I started for my project. .

Maybe a P90 with dog ears in black? How many strings are you giving it? You may just want to make your own.

I'm going to do a six string, someone else suggested a P90 as well. I'll look into it.

Danelectro Lipstick - official brand reissue, or any of the better copies.

Approptiately vintage sounding single coil.

You don't want it's appearance to clash with that beautiful box. So I think a black P90 with dogears may be the thing. It should be easiest to mount as well.
But there may be something better out there.

But on the other hand string spacing and precise matching of exact bridge saddles to pole pieces
dont matter with a with a Lipstick;

[similar to single coil sized 'blade' magnet humbuckers]

and you can get them in black finish.

Some of the copies aren't finicky to fit like genuine Danos might be thought.

Some I think fit flat direct to the guitar top surface.

Also vintage Dano pickups gained popularity with blues slide guitarists.

Then again, I also like P90s, but I believe the better P90s aint cheap.
I have various far east made P90 guitars and the sound is usually a bit indifferent.

Whereas the new old stock Korean Dano pickups from about 10 years ago sound great
with small wattage USA 'Fender champ' style valve amps.

I think the current production Dano lipsticks might just be a little hotter for a bit more versatility ?
