Zach Stevenson replied to Andy Gallacher's discussion Newbie looking for advice

Installing a preamp

Hello Gear Heads,I recently ordered a really inexpensive preamp and piezo pick-up made by Joyo. I plan to install it in my campfire beater as DIY project for the winter. The design is incredibly similar to the Fishman Presys line of preamps that are meant to be installed in the side of the guitar. Anyone ever install one before any tips?I plan on removing the piezo pick-up that came with it and mating the preamp with a Schatten HFN passive pick-up. Anyone ever do that before? Any tips? Tools…See More

"Most factory set ups are a little on the high side. The good news is that it's usually easily fixable. If you have musician friends find out where they go for set ups and take your guitar there. As for strings: I'd stick with the string…"

Zach Stevenson replied to Larry Shone's discussion Hmm Fender magazine! in the group Fender the Forgotten Acoustics
"I've only seen the online teaser. Have you seen a full issue? Any good? It will likely be highly biased towards electric players, that's always been Fender's forte. "

"Sounds great! Are you happy with the Schatten? I'm thinking of removing the stock undersaddle pick-up on my guitar and installing a passive Schatten HFN and mating it to the existing onboard preamp. Did you do your own install? If so, was it…"
