I bought this pickup intending to use it to upgrade a Baggs M1 I had in a particular guitar. As it turned out, I sold that guitar before getting round to doing the switch.
I put it in another guitar (just fitting it in the soundhole with the wire trailing out) to check it worked ok - it did of course! - then took it out. It went back in its box. So 5 - 10 minutes use, maximum. It sounded great, but I have Fishman Rare Earths in a number of other guitars and I’m trying to standardise my live gear for the sake of simplicity.
If you’re not familiar with these, one really cool feature is the mini jack plug on the pickup side of the endpin cable. It means you can fit the cable permanently in the guitar, but unplug and remove the pickup itself whenever you want.
All the bits and pieces are there, as shown in the picture. It’s basically a brand new pickup offered at a substantial discount from the current price. See the link to the LR Baggs website below for all the technical details.
A Facebook friend of mine - who's not on the forum but has somehow found out about your LR Baggs M80 - has just sent me the following message:
Hi Martin hope all's good with you and yours and was wondering whether you could ask 'Riverman' for me if he would consider a swop of his M80 for a fishman rare earth blend that's here at home as it sounds like he's standardized on one and I'm trying to do the same with the other.
Suppose I should be on the forum really but have never got round to it!! thanks Dave
Could you let me know what you think of his proposition?
