    Default Built-in pickup system for nylon-string mandolin?

    I've just begun building a nylon-string mandolin and am thinking about incorporating a built-in pick-up system. I'm a complete novice in the electronics field, however, and was just wondering if anyone could recommend a suitable product that won't break the bank?
    Thanks in advance,

    Dean

    RMC Pickups it's what Godin Uses on their Nylon string Electric Guitars ..

    http://www.rmcpickup.com/

    Mandolin? 1 pickup per pair of strings. (like Godin's own A8) , or 1 per if not using double courses..

    But Generically any Contact sound board or In Bridge pickup will do ..

    as you are amplifying the vibrations of the soundboard , Not the strings directly.

    Schertler, AKG, or any of a Passle of Piezos ..
