    I am going to get a new pickup. I had a Fishman BP-100 and all I ever got out of it was feedback. Alot of players I know use underwood and have no feedback problems at all. I am thinking about getting and adjustable bridge also. Which adjustable bridge should I get to fit the underwood. I have also been told that the more figured the bridge is the better or richer it will sound. I will be using my UB with and eden WT-400 and an eden
    2-10 or an Bag End S-15D.
    Thanks:)

    You don't have to get a new bridge. You can have adjusters installed on your current bridge, and the Underwood should fit in the wing gap of any regular bridge. Small adjustments of the gap may be needed (filing or shimming).

    You'll find information on both adjusters and pickups in the newbie-sections, or by searching.
