Gretch Jim Dandy + pickup

Added a soundhole pickup into this guitar! It won’t be an “acoustic” anymore, but an “acoustic electric”!

First two additional holes: one for a volume potentiometer (6 mm) and another for the endpin jack (12 mm):

The pickup is a Gretch Deltoluxe – a very nice magnetic single coil designed to fit into an acoustic guitar’s sound hole. It’s sold with all the mounting hardware and the endpin jack, but it doesn’t have a volume control, so I’ll be adding one. The pickup has a cable long enough to insert the volume pot in the upper side close to the neck joint.

And it’s all mounted!
