No instrument modification needed.
The Shadow SH NFX-UK is a Nanoflex undersaddle pickup with preamp for ukulele. The installation is done in seconds without any modification to your uke.
Nanoflex pickups sense the vibrations of the strings and the movements of the soundboard simultaneously. The sound is sweet and percussive with exact attack, like having a microphone mixed with an under saddle pickup.
Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, no sound will be lost and no hum created.
The flexible pickup mounts under the bridge saddle and the attached extremely light preamp with 3V cell battery holder, volume control and output socket mounts to the bridge end. 12' (4m) cable is included.

Comments about Shadow SH NFX-UK Quick Mount Nanoflex Pickup with Preamp for Ukulele:
I guess I'm the first review for this pickup. This pickup seems a bit expensive but I needmy tenor to go live. I did the install myself and I was a little nervous. I had to file my saddle bottom a bit more square. At first the high string was not as loud as the others. I made an adjustment of the undersaddle part of the pickup until it was in just the right spot (put your new stings on after you are satisfied with the sound). Now it sounds amazing; natural acoustic sound, warm and the sound cuts through. I set my eq on my mixer with the treble at about 4 and the mid and bass at 5. Is it worth it and it is it a durable pickup, not sure yet so I gave it a 4 for value. I put strap buttons on my uke so I can support the cable.
