I just snagged a Tacoma CB10 Thunderchief, which is a pure acoustic - no pickup at all. And from reading some opinions out there, that's not such a bad thing - the factory electronic options seem workable but mundane. Does anyone here have any experience with installing pickups or mics in an ABG? The main reason I wanted the Tacoma was the wonderful tone, and I would want the amplified sound to have the same character. Many people on the Acoustic Guitar magazine forum rave about "Pick-up the World" products, but that experience is from guitar. How about mic'd systems, or blended rigs? In any case, I would be using an external preamp - I want a internal pickup going to a output jack, and that's it. I probably would not use a endpin jack since I prefer straplocks. Comments and/or experiences, anyone? Maxvalentino, you out there?
