Re: Pickups (reply)
Typical soundhole pickups are basically putting a magnetic pickup made for magnetic strings on an acoustic guitar on which most people use phosphor bronze.This is not what works best on an acoustic.I use K&K pickups on all my Martins.

Re: Pickups (reply)
I prefer soundhole pickups to piezos. For years I used a blend, but have found recently that magnetic alone is just fine. It depends what kind of sound you want.I use home-made ones and a Baggs M1 Active. This might have been replaced by...
