Combining the two humbuckers on a T5z with a new UST

Postby Subby » Wed Nov 18, 2020 4:15 pm

I added a Fishman Matrix Infinity under saddle with it's own preamp and jack, but its a real pain using an ABY pedal and having so many tone knobs to dial everything in.

I was thinking of either wiring the UST directly into the T5z board (replacing the awful body sensor) or swapping that body sensor for something like a K&K. Taylor isn't sure it'll play nice because that existing body sensor is super low impedance. At this point I'd consider a new board and just rewiring everything, as long as the humbuckers played nice with either the UST or K&K. The preferred method though would be finding some way to wire the UST or K&K to the Taylor board and having access to it in the first position like the existing body sensor.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Welcome to the SOS forums.

For the benefit of others reading, a T5z is a Taylor guitar.

And as this is guitar related, I'll move this to the Guitar Tech forum as it's more likely to been seen by anyone with 1st hand experience of this mode.
