Acoustic electric pickup - new build

Postby Andrew McSpadden » Tue Feb 13, 2018 6:58 pm

Good customer wants a solid body acoustic styled electric (think Godin or Chet Atkins SST) and I am thinking about the pickup. It will have a traditional bridge with a bone saddle. I have installed hundreds of under the saddle pickups on regular acoustics. The challenge is to put a volume and tone pots on the top from the preamp and to add an XLR out. SD and Fishman have not got back to me yet (and I doubt they will) so any recommendations for pickups or other thoughts/ideas?
