    Does anyone know where I can get a replacement bridge saddle pickup (piezo transducer) for my ABG???? I've searched all over the internet without much luck.

    www.elderly.com. If there aren't any on the website, give them a call. They are quite helpful and knowledgeable over there. Good luck.

    Fishman or LR Baggs should do one.

    Thanks for the help people. I talked to someone at Elderly Instruments and they said that Fishman would make an extra long ribbon pickup for $120. I only paid $100 for the guitar. For the time being I'm going buy some piezo discs and try experimenting with making my own. If that doesn't work, I'm going to put a magnetic pickup in the soundhole.

    If you go with a soundhole pickup, allow me to suggest the Seymour Duncan Woody HC. It is a stacked humbucker with a very natural acoustic tone, for not a lot of money. I've never been disappointed with mine. Good luck with whatever you decide.
