Best acoustic guitar pickup I've used or heard!
I used this on a gig for the first time yesterday and have to say that I am very very impressed with what a great job this did as a pickup! From the first strum of my Alvarez-Yairi dreadnaught cutaway guitar the richness and the accuracy of the tone was amazing.
I was using this pickup with my newly purchased Roland BA-330 portable PA amp, running entirely on batteries, and this combination left nothing to be desired, sound-wise. There were no feedback issues, even though I sat right beside the amp, and the built-in cord was long enough to allow me freedom of motion.
My only complaint is that the cord is permanently attached -- I can understand why they built it this way but I wish they had had a short cable permanently connected which could simply hang down inside the guitar body when the pickup is not being used, and then pulled out and connected to a regular guitar cable when desired.
As it is, this pickup is very easy to install and remove (just keep a small phillips-head screwdriver in your guitar case) so the permanently attached cable isn't a big deal at all.
I have used the Dean Markley pickup in the past (the one encased in wood that is held in place in the sound-hole with foam-rubber) and I have to say that this Fishman Neo-D Humbucking pickup is far superior.
