    I spoke with Craig at the Nashville Warwick Showroom about the Ghost system, since that is what they sell now. He said I would need to modify the saddle holders slightly for the Ghost inserts to fit. I intend to contact Graph Tech and discuss with them what I need to buy to accomplish my envisioned goal. I will also contact Fishman to see if they have anything to offer, in addition to what they list on their website. Before I do that, however, I want to try to find a compact magnetic pickup that I can mount to a fabricated bracket that I would like to attach to, the already highly modified, bridge. "Try" is the key word there. I am mainly concerned with a high quality and well installed system, as I want to enhance the value of the bass, rather than degrade it. So, I will put some effort into research and design before I make any decisions.

    I just discovered that Shadow Electronic's German site has a whole bunch more stuff on it than the English site has.........including the NanoMag pickup. I can't read German and there is no contact info that I can find on the site. Do any of you guys in that part of the world know if they still make a NanoMag pickup for an electric bass? I know they did in the past, since I have an Epiphone Zenith bass equipped with one. The one I see on the German site appears to be for those girly little six string guitars. The one on my Zenith bass sounds fantastic. In fact, it is the best thing about that bass. I must have one!

    I 'd like to chime in saying that since Warwick makes the Warwick bridge, they should be able to provide info about what can be done with it piezo-wise or piezo-like-wise.
