Great quality pickup. I am using it in a 1997 Taylor 710 non electric dreadnought. Fishman humbucker has better tone than other sound hole pickups. Tried an m1a. Brought it back within a week. Used k&k pure western. Took them out too. This is my new favorite. Thanks Fishman!

I recently purchased this item and found their installation items poor. The item did not function. The wire itself was very inferior, extremely light gauge and certainly less than professional quality. I can't attest to the sound since it didn't work. The fact that the item required the purchaser to go out and buy washers instead of equiping them was lousy packaging.

      I have an ok acoustic guitar. I play solo gigs so I needed a pickup. I ordered the fishman humbucker, put it on and plugged in. WOW this pickup sounds great. NO feedback at all. It just amplifies the natural sound of your acoustic. JUST what I wanted.

            Very good pickup. Not a professional unit however. There are much better units
            for professional musicians. But for the money and within certain parameters this
            is a fine unit.

                This is a good sounding magnetic pickup, read...it's not totally natural sounding. It has an electric guitar quality to it. But it is a very usable sound, for me, way better than a piezo under saddle pickup.

                  If you are expecting this unit to look like the picture shown
                  forget it. They are showing a pic of an older model. Fishman has
                  upgraded this unit but so far they haven't upgraded the picture.
                  I liked the older squared off version shown online but the upgraded
                  version is sort of rounded. Doesn't make a difference sound wise but if you prefer the one pictured you are out of luck.
                  I have sent MF several emails to appraise them of this but they have ignored
                  me so far. I guess it is a small problem but imagine if you wanted a sun burst model guitar and you got a natural model. Get it?

                  I was looking for a pickup to put in my acoustic and this (to my ears) captured it's sound the best. Very durable with solid construction. The pickup doesn't distort the guitars natural sound and is small enough that it doesn't interfere with my playing.

                      Buy this pickup, it has great tone and dosen't get in the way. The batteries last forever to so you don't have to worry about that either. I have not used this pickup for an extended period of time so I don't have much to say about it yet, accept that it's handy, and that it is another quality piece from Fishman.

                        I've used this pick up for 3 years and still using the original batteries. Installed on a 30 year old Yamaha 12 string and it sounds so sweet. Crisp, clean tone, couldn't ask for a better sound. Look no further,grab one of these.
