Thread Name: New guitar recommendations
Subject: RE: New guitar recommendations
Regarding pickups...I have used several types, e.g. Fishman, Shadow, Ashworth, and have now fitted my main instruments with PUTW #27s. These I mostly run through a PUTW Power Plug endpin preamp which has a bit more gain and is more convenient than my Fishman EQ II which I also sometimes use. I have found the PUTW 27 to be the most natural-sounding pickup to my ears, at least with my instuments, and it avoids some of the drawbacks of under-saddle types. You do need to use a decent preamp though.

Grab...sorry you didn't get a Lakewood as mentioned by 'Spaw above

(;>)    (they don't pay me anything honest!)

but the Lowden is a very fine guitar also ...my second guitar was a Lowden until recently!

Peace,

moo
