    Makes your electric sound like an acoustic, or blend the two. 8)

    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 :lol: 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
