L.R. Baggs Element Active System

An undersaddle transducer that fits most common string spacings and saddle widths.

The Element™ undersaddle transducer for steel-string guitars is flexible, to contact the bridge and saddle more efficiently. The improved coupling increases sensitivity, for a more lively and open acoustic guitar sound with a delicate high end. It works with most common string spacings and saddle widths, including 3/32" and 1/8", for uniform string-to-string balance.

The system features a discrete class-A preamp/endpin jack with pre-contoured EQ for plug-and-play convenience, and a soundhole-mounted mini volume control that requires no soldering or drilling. A handy no-drill mesh battery bag is also included. 9-volt battery required.

Still the best under-saddle transducer

By

I fitted one of these to an early '60s LG-1 I'd replaced the plastic bridge on. Great results, but you have to be sure to flatten the saddle base at just the right angle or you get uneven string response and low output gain.

Also, I find the unbleached bone intonated saddle for Gibson guitars works best with this pickup.

Best Acoustic Pick-up for DECADES!!!!

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Although I miss it's original ribbon version, this pick-up has been unrivaled as my all time favorite for 25 years. I'm afraid it gets overlooked because it's been around for so long. As a guitar repairman for over 30 years, I'm telling you.... Nothing touches it!!!!!!
