Once Red switched to the fifths tuning he used a combination of different pickups including a magnetic pickup to achieve the sound he was hearing. Towards the end of his life though he ditched all of that and switched to the Fishman pickup that no one else seems to like. I have a couple pictures of him playing with that pickup and a little GK amp. Quite a change from all those pickups and mixer and big 15inch aplifier he was using. Does anyone know why he did this and why he liked the Fishman? Does anyone else here still like that original Fishman.
