Fishman Thinline Undersaddle Pickup

About This Item

This popular transducer is designed for installation at the bottom of a 3/32" (2.38mm) wide bridge saddle (saddle not included).

Martin installed this model for several years on their amplified 6-string guitars. This pickup is designed for string spreads up to 2-1/8" (53.97mm).

Includes the Fishman Switchjack: a stereo jack that can be used for mono, stereo, or mono with battery switching capabilities. Like all passive transducers, this pickup does not require a battery. The Switchjack™ tightens from outside the guitar, and accepts a standard 1/4" (6.35mm) plug. 1/2" (12.70mm) diameter mounting hole required. An impedance-matching preamp is recommended, but not required.

Dreadnought experiment

(Customer's Reviews)

I installed this pickup in my StewMac Dreadnought kit as an experiment, and am surprised and delighted at the result. I am using the Schatter mini-preamp for impedance matching into a Fender Mustang II and find that there is plenty of signal and very low, almost imperceptible, noise. There is good balance across all strings. Despite on-line warnings and cautions, I found installation to be very straightforward just following the Fishman directions. Great fun to play!


sound good

(Customer's Reviews)

Sound good on my Taylor 522 with fishman undersadle pickup plugged into my Pendulum Audio SPS 1


not so great

(Customer's Reviews)

I have built about 40 guitars, and have installed a dozen or so pickups in acoustic guitars. This product is very flimsy and subject to damage on install. I have never been able to get decent balance across all six strings with it. The continuous ribbon type from BBand has worked a lot better for me . Wish stewmac carried them.
