Title: need help from fellow om-03rsh owner
Post by: arcterix100 on January 27, 2006, 05:23:32 PM
hi guys,

I will shortly recieve a 03rsh (the twelth fret guitar) and I would like to have feedback pickup wise.  If you can give me any information on experience you had with different pickups in this guitar it would be very appreciated.

in my mind now:
k&k pure western mini
rare earth blend
matrix natural 2

thanks!

Congratulations on your new guitar. I bet it will be a beauty!

I have used a modified Fishman Rare Earth (I added a Crown GLM100 mic to a regular humbucker model and configured it for dual source) and an IBeam active in mine. I would recommend either as a good Pu for this, or any guitar. Using an IBeam active and a FRE together in a dual source config is about as good as it gets for on-stage, plugged in sound, IMHO.

Depending on what types of venues you play, and what style of music/playing you do I would rate one higher than the other. Why not tell us some more details and we can likely gie you some more focused advice.

I will use it mostly in duo with a singer, sometimes with full band.  I already have a j-45 for strumming.  I would prefer not having a hb right in my sound hole.

thanks ronmac! I can't stand still.. I will have it tomorow! a first larry for me

Hi there -

I have an OM-03R and have gone the route of the K&K Pure Western as I have with my last few guitars. Nice natural sound, pretty good feedback resistance (with a decent pre-amp).  Nice clean install that doesn't clutter the soundhole ( unlike a mag), and allows adjusment/replacement of your saddle without possibly messing up your electric sound (unlike an undersaddle).

good luck!
