Hmm. I didn't hear that in the video. I've used a block of Mahogany bolted to the underside of a pickup before (then to the body) to thicken up the sound, and while it's not the same thing, I see what you're trying to accomplish.
I guess this is the R&D phase. ;D

Hmm - I wonder if adding wood behind the pick-ups would make any difference? The string vibration is transferred to the body via the bridge and neck, I would have thought that the pick-ups would be relatively inert, being there to pick up the changing flux caused by the string vibrating in the field of the pick-up magnets....
I guess a guitar of this kind is bound to have it's own unique characteristics. good and bad!
Yeah, it's in the same spot in the song basically.
Hurts the ears.
It doesn't hurt my ears, but I hear it. Do you think it is electronic or mechanical? If it is electronic you could try painting the pickup cavities with sheilding paint. If it is mechanical it may have to do with vibtration and you could try using something like a Dr. Scholl's shoe insert to deaden the vibtration. You could just coat it with VIBRANIUM...whatever that is.
