Used as a standalone

(Customer's Reviews)

I used this system on an enclosed semi-hollow T-style guitar with no controls or other pickups, just plug and play. To my ears, you're best off running the system through a dedicated acoustic amp. The subtleties, nuances and dynamics of a big resonant acoustic guitar are all there, and responds very well to finger picking, without having to lug around something the size of a tea chest. Yes it's not a real acoustic, but then the Rosewood I used wasn't a real Rosewood and that didn't harm the sound in any way either.


Preamp for Teles

(Customer's Reviews)

Have built 2 teles using ghost saddles, preamp and quick switch. I like that I can adjust the gain of the preamp to match my pickup volume. Preamp is really small but my guitars were semi hollow to allow easy installation.


teles with ghost saddles and preamp

(Customer's Reviews)

Built 2 teles with ghost saddles, preamp and quick switch. Bodies were semi hollow to make installation easy. Band members like that I can switch from acoustic to magnetic pickups at the flick of a switch. Recommend battery box be used
