Hi DJML'ers

I'm in the process of building a novelty "guitar" by adding a guitar neck 
(frets, tuning pegs and all) onto a brief case or some other disparate body 
and I need an electric pick-up to stick under the strings somewhere to 
amplify the stupid thing.

I mean its a trashy set up for openers. I found a broken guitar in a junk 
heap and removed the neck which is in fair shape and I'm trying to decide 
what is the dumbest thing among the body possibilities out in the storage 
shed to attach to the neck.

Only problem is, I don't wanna spend a lot of bucks for a fancy schmancy 
electric pick up to run through my amp -- just something that'll be 
serviceable and produce a recognizable sound.

Does anybody out there have such a thing lying around in a junk box or music 
kit someplace they would be willing to part with for a few paltry dollars?

If so, please contact me privately at jazzboard at hotmail.com and let me know.

Thank in advance if you have something I might be able to use,
