attaching piezo pickup

What should i use to stick piezo pickup externally?.........

was going use 3M VHB sticky pad, my old GJ guitar is quite beaten up so not overly concern but still much loved.

Could use some advice tbh

    To me, the best stuff for attaching pickups to our guitars is the gray putty that comes with Krivo pickups. Not the old blue putty, it was stringy & left weird bits behind. I found bits of it in weird places on my guitar, on my fingers, in my daughter's hair, etc. But the gray stuff is great, I use it all the time on my gigs to attach my pickups. It never wears out or loses its stick & leaves nothing behind. Our gracious host Michael sells Krivo pickups, maybe he could sell you a little wad of it in the handy carrying case? If not, maybe go to Krivo's website & ask Jason to sell you some. Like Michael here at Djangobooks, I've always found Jason Krivo easy to reach & extremely helpful. We're in good hands in this community!

    @MikeK i don’t have the Krivo stuff but we do have the Schertler putty which is finish friendly and lasts forever:
