Now that I have your attention...

What aftermarket pickups can you reccomend for an acoustic guitar? Would I be better off selling my standard acoustic guitar (Fender DG100, about a $300 guitar) and using the funds to buy an electric/acoustic already setup to be played plugged in? Can I use an electric guitar amp with an acoustic/electric?

Not sure on the pickups, but you can use any amp you want. I have a couple Fenders, but I love the little green Danelectro practice amp that I have the best.

I use a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp with my acoustics.


I use a Dean Markley soundhole pickup on my Martin D-28, and I put a Fishman thinline in my Martin DX-1, because I didn't mind cutting up the DX-1.

They both sound great, the thinline has a built in preamp and an on-board EQ.

Now you owe me some boobs.

Benbob, what model of Dean pickup do you use? Does it require a seperate preamp?

An electric guitaramp with an acoustic sounds like crap. The frequency response of the amp and the speakers will nuke the sound, plus the output impedance of a piezo is completely wrong.

Get a decent acoustic amp . . . I recommend the SWR Strawberry Blonde. The Fender acoustic amps are OK too. The Tech 21 Bronzewood has a really nice sound, especially with my electric with Graphtech piezo saddles.

As far as pickups go, I'm a fan of the Fishman stuff. Get a piezo professional installed under your saddle and plug into a decent amp. If you want to go direct to a PA, plug into a Para-EQ or a Tech21 AcousticDI to get alittle EQ and to match impedances.
