    Really annoying amplified acoustic sound

    Hey, so I got a few guitars, I've got them all sorted with Fishman's. J45, J30, Martin and a J100. I absolutely love the J100 but I can't use it because it makes a static-y type of noise when plugged in. First I thought it was the Fishman Presys so I got a replacement, then it was better...

    Hey Folks! I have a new/old guitar coming in this week that has the Gibson Accu-Voice pre-amp system and the 1/4" and XLR output jack. I know that this system doesn't really exist anymore - is that because it was terrible or is it a hidden gem? Just wondering your thoughts and advice...

    Still fighting acoustic pickups

    First off - thanks everyone for all the help and suggestions you've given me. I'm just still hating the pickup in my Gibson J-30. I had a Fishman Natural 2 in it that worked great for about a decade. Then the bridge saddle cracked and I had a new one professionally installed. Upgraded...

    Best Soundhole Pickup for Non-Acoustic sounds

    Hey guy, I'm wondering about an Acoustic Soundhole pickup recommendation that doesn't sound "acoustic". Preferably a magnetic pickup that can be balanced string wise and then distorted through an amp. Thanks.

    Splitting or cracking an acoustic bridge saddle to balance the sound?

    Ok, I never heard of this until just recently. I was looking at a guitar and the guy said that his luthier split the one piece bridge into two pieces. He cut it between the G & B string to balance the high strings with the low strings with the piezo pickup. I thought this was just crazy...

    Flipping the strings on a 12 string to make it Rickenbacker style

    Hey, I was wondering if any of you have ever flipped the strings on your acoustic 12 string so that the heavy string is first and the octave second? You know, like a Rickenbacker 12 string. I realize that this would mean cutting a new nut and all. I'm just so used to it from the...

    Dual Sourcing My Acoustic - advice needed

    Hey guys. So here's the thing: I split my acoustic guitar signal, it hits an ABY pedal with A going to the PA for a clean unaffected tone and B goes to overdrives, volume pedal and delays then to my amp. It's taken me a while to get stuff where I like it and I'm very close. Why I do this...

    Dual Source Side mount Preamp? Help?

    Hey guys, So I was checking out the Epiphone SJ-200 and noticed how it had a magnetic pickup and bridge piezo, a blend thing on the preamp and two (2!!) outputs on the guitar for sending each pickup to a separate source. I'm really intrigued by this set up but don't really enjoy the sound...

    The Epiphone EJ200 CE - Anyone have one?

    I went searching on here and couldn't find anyone that has one. So here's the thing ~ I'm a guitar snob. I know it. I've been looking for an acoustic to take on the road with me because my Gibsons are getting beat up and I fear their safety. (planes, trains and automobiles involved) So...

    Using a Guitar Wireless system - with acoustic guitar - advice needed

    Just a quick question. I already know that a cable sounds better, but sometimes live I really like the freedom of a wireless. My problem is that every wireless that I've tried sounds TERRIBLE with an acoustic guitar. Fine with electric but the acoustic is either distorting or the notes...

    Anyone permanently install a electric pickup in the top of your acoustic?

    I've been messing with this idea for years and can't seem to bring myself to do it but then watching this Ray Wylie Hubbard video - and he's got like a Filtertron or something mounted into the top of his acoustic! What the What!? I'm wondering if any of you have tried anything hybrid-ish...
