    I love the Piezo in my P24 so a big yes to that.

    As far as the pups go, I have a set of LT's up on Reverb.

    'k....hang on to my sauce, and let me know when you're past it. I don't want to end up in multiple garbage bags, scattered in various retention ponds throughout the suburbs.

    Your ambition is unpredictable at best. Thus the gold top project.

    Bodia, RUN!

    Thank you all for your feedback. Yesterday, I actually played the guitar for the 1st time in about 2 months (knowing the guitar needs a setup and having other guitars at hand, I admit that I have been procrastinating). Forgetting that it needs a set up, I must have played for about 2 hours and I came away thinking that the Archtop pickups are just fine and inspiring to me. I have always lived by the motto "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", so I think I have decided that changing the pick ups for the time being will not be part of the game plan.

    I am still mulling over whether or not to have a piezo installed (something about Sergio's point about just one more thing that can rattle around in a hollowbody guitar), but for now will get the set up taken care of locally and put a set of flat wound strings on and see what happens to the tone.
