    I though about the pick ups but I don't know if I will be playing mine on stage anytime soon. Easy to install a set of K&K piezos if I decide to do so. I installed K&K's on one of my Taylor guitars and it was easy.

    It is all fishing line. Florocarbon line was developed for the commerical fishing industry, then recreational fisherman found out about its benifits, then fretted stringed instrument builders. Nylon and monofilment are thicker and stretch more than florocarbon so it was a natural evolution.

    I took the plunge a couple of months ago and love it. I still play my Tenor ukes, but I am really enjoying my Baritone.
