Subject: RE: Tech: After Market Acoustic Guitar Pick up???
I have fitted a couple of my guitars with K and K Pure Westerner transducers. Don't be put off by them being cheap _ jack Hudson recommended them to me.

They're great for live work. For recording, they work better ran through the simulators of an Yamaha AG Stomp (seems to take a little of the'spikiness' of the sound off it).

Get a good luthier to position it for you - someone with gynaecologists fingers for tweaking the position through the sound hole. One of my guitars isn't as good as the other due to the sorcerers apprentice doing the job.

best wishes
