"Don't let the price fool you. I have two under $250 acoustics (Epi SJ200, and Epi SJ200-Artist) that I have install pickup in and I play them more than any guitars I have. Both sound fantastic unplugged but I just installed the pickups…"
"You mention you have a "mixer" so I am confused. Do you just use the mixer to record sound and the sound is not exported /sent out of the mixer? All you should have to do is hook the mixer to a power amp and into the house…"
"You will be ok with the 2nd one since you will be able to run the wire through the hole in the end of the guitar and solder and then mount. I was referring to if you ever have to install the 1st type in an acoustic guitar. There is Jack…"
"I say if it works, go for it because eventually you will be using just one finger to bar the 3 strings for "A" anyway. I do it with my middle finger on electric because I can then easily go to Am or C, or D. Some use their…"
"Shouldn't need any extra wood. Another trick is zip ties if you were going to use the one at the bottom, and tie 2 or 3 together, then feed them through the jack and then out the hole and pull the jack into the hole and hold it there with the…"
"Maybe a little plastic wood with some varnish. I don't know the color of the guitar, but it's a possibility or see if you can find a rubber gasket or cut a rubber gasket just larger than the EQ. I always add a rubber…"
"The dremel also works great to cut on electrics. I used one when I basically rebuilt this guitar. Dremeled/routed the pickup area. Drilled all the holes, and cut out the back for some old Les Paul covers I had so I could do all the…"
"I have done this numerous times with guitars I have. There shouldn't be any problem really, but I do have a few suggestions after doing this numerous times.
1 - Use a dremel tool to do the cutting versus drilling holes and jig saw.…"
"I installed an old Artec preamp and pickup in one of my older guitars a few years back and it works fine and had no problems doing it, and the Joyo ones are practically made the same.
Where did you order yours from, because I wouldn't mind…"
"I checked you profile and it said you were in Vasila CA, and I looked up that on Curt's site and it shows Damage, Inc Guitar Modifications has the Mangan strings at:
Address: 3731 South Mooney Boulevard, Visalia, CA…"
"One thing you have to look at when it comes to Elixer's is this: Until recently Elixer's are 80/20 vs normal Phosphor Bronze such as DAddario, John Pearse, etc. Most guitars come from factory with Phosphor Bronze instead of…"
"Nope, it's because in electrics you basically shortcut learning chords in regards to using 1 finger over multiple strings, 2 finger open, 2 finger power chords, 3 finger power chords vs normal fingering or barred chords. I know all the…"
"I also agree on the practice the chord forms in their usual/normal orientation. As I said in previous post my "electric" skill kinda suck because I try and transpose all that I have learned normally into 2 finger/3 finger power…"
