I've been enticed by that mysterious gold foil sound hole pickup that guitar fetish has for like, $11 on their site and seeing that I've wanted to electrify my acoustic for a long while now (and I in fact did that to my old $100 Yamaha) I decided "fuck it why not" and hit add to Cart on the little fucker. let's just hope it fits the little sound hole on my gretsch jim dandy because I will be very upset if it doesnt. although in the pic it fits like right up to the butt of the neck so it should fit hopefully into the middle of the soundhole on my guitar. oh well I guess we will see in about a week or so fellas

got curious so I dismantled the pickup (really easy, there's only two screws holding it together) and found this





it's a single coil ceramic pickup with no potting at all, which explains why it's so microphonic. oh well, it still sounds good to me.

Thought so. I thought, I know this, then realised what it was.

It's mic'd up and plugged in; probably a combination of both those sounds, man. Also tuned to Eb which'll have an effect (my new little parlour acoustic is tuned to Eb forever now).
