Don Meixner Opinons on pick-ups for acoustic guitar (52* d) RE: Opinons on pick-ups for acoustic guitar 25 Jan 99


I have a Guild F-30 with a Fishman bridge pick up that is adequate when run through a pre-amp. I have yet to hear an accoustic guitar sound from a pick up no matter how much it cost. The best mix I've heard was a combination of a bridge pick up and a condenser mic on the guitar. It was in a studio setting and the equalization must have been a nightmare.

Playing out in a band I've heard a good mix. Buy an Ovation, tolerate the way it feels and the marginal sound and live knowing that you good guitar is home. Safe from the road and awaiting your return.
