Hi, Folks, I'm modding a jazz guitar that currently has a magnetic pickup in the neck. I'm putting an acoustic pickup (actually a compression pickup) under the bridge to get an acoustic sound. However, I don't have a pre-amp for the pickup, but one is generally recommended. I'm planning to have them wired with a stereo/TRS output jack on the guitar so I can blend them externally. Would the HX stomp be sufficient for this? The idea is to split the signals into the two inputs and then bring the two input paths together. On the acoustic side, I would have an IR as well as a pre-amp model or similar. Would this work out okay? Do I need a pre-amp to amplify the acoustic signal *before* I get to the Helix, or should I be able to balance those two pickups with levels, etc. inside the HX Stomp? Thanks for any help/suggestions.
