just wondering. thinkin about doing it.
I've had them on other guitars, but I think it would be cool on an SG! 8)
what's it exactly do?
is it always on?
Makes your electric sound like an acoustic, or blend the two. 8)
very awesome.... I should get one! is it a good sounding acoustic..pretty authentic?
Yup, use a Y cable and send the output from the Fishman to your acoustic guitar amp/PA and the other to your electric amp, then watch your audience try to figure out where that acoustic guitar sound 8) is coming from!!
The sound is "so-so". Its not bad, its sort of... perhaps a "take-off" on the acoustic sound. Certianly your guitar will not sound like a Martin, Taylor or even a Harmony.... well it MAY sound better than a Harmony...
Keep in mind a few things -
1. You just dont get the overtones that a thin spruce top is going to give you.
2. Piezo's have their own set of quirks - ask Ovation and Taylor and just about any of the acoustic amp people. They all try to get the piezo dynamic and attack to sound more natural. They've come a long long way and its pretty good.
Check out these guys, and listen to some sound samples
