Electric Harp Guitar Project

So I've grown tired of looking around through builders trying to find harp guitar builders at a reasonable price. I'm basically just looking to learn and see if it is an instrument i'd be interested in putting some decent money into in the future. So we have an RG570 AANJ neck laying around at my parent's house and decided to put it to good use. Below is my mock up drawing and first template made from MDF. Looking to dump magnetic pickups altogether and just use a piezos. This is going to be more for ambient style music, or simulated acoustic tone. I've found a bridge and individual string bridges both with piezos built in by ABM guitar hardware. I believe hipshot has a bridge with piezos built in as well. Not sure which would be better. Does anyone else know of anyone making individual string bridges with piezos in the saddles? i know it's a strange project and i'm not sure how well it will turn out, but i'm going to try.
