    Amazing (For Me!)

    Installed the Lyric myself in my 2014 Marlon Navarro Flamenco Blanca with pegs. Couldn't be happier. Did my research after using only B-Band AST in my other guitars for years, and needed a more natural sound - less quack and boom.
    Beside placement ( Second Treble fan brace, between bridge and soundhole) sensitivity adjustment is a must. It took a few adjustment with the supplied tool to get the right balance of highs, and to reduce the "boomy" effect, but so simple a chimp could dial it in.
    Pretty lightweight as well, and only minor modification to the end block is needed. Stop reading and buy it!

    Amazing Pickup

    I have to admit two things one I did not get my Lyric at Sweetwater and two I thought I would not like it. I was very pleasantly surprised by the sound of this fantastic pick up (L.R. Baggs Lyric). When placed and tuned properly it truly depicts a true sound as a microphone would of a nylon string guitar in my case in Córdoba 45FP, the glops and taps sound good too. As I got back to Fresno by 3:30pm I was able to try the pick up with my system and it sounds fantastic looking forward to my 7 o'clock start time this evening. Even though it looks like it's an easy install it's worth having a luthier set it up for you as they can help find the best placement for it. I also run my pickup with the Line 6 Wirless to a BBE Acousticmax and it sound great. I can also report it worked great for tonight's gig,

    pretty cool - a couple of nits

    this is a cool rig. I am giving it 4 stars because its in an inexpensive Yamaha nylon string, and I installed it myself, so there is a definite chance that the installation might not be A-1.

    What I like - pretty well replicates the acoustic sound of the guitar. Tapping the top of the guitar comes through as well so if you do some pseudo-flamenco techniques you get all that. Tuning the presence control does give you some variations in high end, much more noticeable going into UA 610 solo > Duet 2 > Logic than going into either an Acoustic Image Clarus / Raezors Edge Twin 8 tower or an AER Alpha 40.

    What I am unsure about - limited volume range before feedback (to be fair amp was a couple feet behind me at waist height so not optimally located for feedback. Through either amp, there seems to be not much gain on hand from the internal endpin preamp. I have to turn the amp up much higher to get a comparable volume to fingerpicking on my Larivee L-03 with Fishman Piezo.
