Resonator guitar pickups

Recommended Posts

I'm considering an electric pickup for my "repop" Tricone.   Will a string pickup mounted to the metal body work? With no guitar repair/electronic setup experience, I wonder what would be my best option.  A contact mike looks easy, but I would prefer a string pickup with a mounted cord jack.  Any recommendations on these options?

Dean uses a lipstick style pickup to pick up the strings and a Piezo under the bridge.

My recommendation would be go to Guitar Center or someplace that has one and play it and see if you like the way it sounds.  If so it wouldn't be too hard to hook up either or both pickups.
