    Thanks for all the replies.

    I think "piezo" is the one to go with, since I wanna play solibody electric rather than electrified accoustics.

    Tremolo setting is gonna be a b!tch? Good call!!! I wasn't even conserning about that.

    Thanks again everybody!!!

    Peace

    I think the pickups (being magnetic coils) need a metallic object moving through their magnetic field to get the AC action going. Enough physics?

    Yamaha do a couple of nylon variations of there AEX500. So there's no need to go silent!

    Think Godin make a similiar sort of thing but I think they are more pricey.

    fender acousticaster or what was it.. try and string it with nylon strings.. it's got 3 individual piezo pups in the bridge (1 per 2 strings).. try to get your hands on one and check it.. maybe you could get some cool sounds from it

    Actually, Yamaha makes a steel string and nylon string version of their silent guitar. If you like the electric feel but want the sound of nylon, try the Roland VG-88. It sounded pretty close to a classical with one of it's presets. I'm sure that you can get closer by making your own patches.

    Try the "Silent" guitar from Yamaha - can be strung with either nylon or steel strings. I have not played it myself but a few months Hamish Stewart had one and was getting some lovely sounds out of it. I cannot post the direct link to it as is not allowing me to do it - but go to the acoustic electricsection from the main link below:

    Magnetic PUs won't work with nylon strings, you'll need piezo sensors in the bridge.

    Concerning the tremolo, nylon strings are low tension strings and it might be a tricky job to tune the trem !
    At least, take away some springs !

    electric guitar with nylon string?

    I love the sound of classical guitar. That warm sweet tone is priceless.

    I am thinking about installing nylon-strings on the electirc guitar, but probably it won't work.

    I can use electrified classical guitar (which I don't have) throgh guitar amp, but it doesn't have the tremolo unit that I use quite often.

    Is there any pick-ups or system that can mimic nylon-strings?

    Any suggestions?
