      Comments about Fishman Nashville Series Archtop Mandolin Replacement Ebony Bridge Pickup:

      This unit has very good sound quality, but the clamp-on jack is basically useless. I had to tie the jack on with a velcro tie for the performance, and I am still trying to come up with a permanent solution. Does anybody have a device to hold this jack? Please post it to the review page. Thank you.

          Comments about Fishman Nashville Series Archtop Mandolin Replacement Ebony Bridge Pickup:

          The older models have the pickup in the upper bridge which picks up the strings really well but leaves a lot to be desired on tone. This model has the pickup in the lower bridge where it makes contact with the wood instead. I played my first gig with it and the guys in the band agreed, the tone reproduction is perfect! It still sounded like my mandolin only louder! It can't get any better, well worth the money.

              I had gotten a Baggs Radius and was impressed, but just had to try this, knowing I'd send it back if it was not lots better. It was lots better. I installed it myself which I could not have done if I didn't have wood working tools, but it sounds really great.

                It costs a little more than others on the market, but the sound quality you get from it is worth it.
