Wow! Very beautiful. I love seeing the build pictures.
What is in that box that says BREST?
You really need to get a case for that treasure [smile].

Hi Yaouen,

Great to see the picture story of your beautiful instrument.  I hope to be able to complete my own soon.

6 channels of pickups?!  That must give lots of flexibility when mixing.  Do you use all six channels when playing live?  

Which K+Ks did you get - USTs or transducers, and how do they compare with the PUTW?

I am interested because for mine I chose K+K (3 x USTs plus transducers for the 6-string section).

regards

Jon

Hi Jon

6 channels of pickups?!

No, just 5:

1 stereo for K&K L: Bass R: guitar and super treeble
-------------------------------------------------
1 stereo for PUTW L: Bass R: guitar
and 1 mono for super treeble

That must give lots of flexibility when mixing
Yes, very interesting + mic and good preamp


Do you use all six channels when playing live?
Not for the moment, just at home.... often


Which K+Ks did you get - USTs or transducers, and how do they compare with the PUTW?
I have the K&K USTs

K&K vs PUTW:

Very different but complementary
K&K = natural sound  but....
less dynamic and more flat, clean...

PUTW= Very dynamic, rich with generous low
but less natural, slightly compressed


Currently, I record my album.
When I have some time I will register a comparison of two pickup.
You can listen.

Best regards from France
Yaouen
