I bought a Dean Markley California Series Tahoe pickup, brand new for $65.00 at a music store going out of business sale. It has both a soundhole pickup and an under saddle transducer type pickup. Anyone have any experience with these. I'm going to put it in my old Yamaha FG-180. The price was right and it came in a cool tin. I have a weakness for tins.

la Jolla west coast pick up is the one WITH piezo.
 looks like a terrific idea, with passive AND active options.
 might have to investigate this myself!

thanks for the tip

Too many guitars to list here.

Thet also had a modal that was a piezo,a magnetic soundhole and  there was a built in mic.They've done some cool stuff.The original sweetspot with the 6 piezio crystals was one of my favorite under the saddle.

Right you are, as I look closer. The can that it comes in has La Jolla on it. The soundhole pickup, itself, has Tahoe printed on it so the La Jolla must be a combination of a Tahoe and a .... anyway, I couldn't resist for the price. I dropped it off at the technician's place and told him I was in no rush. Should be back in a week. I'm very curious as to what it will do to that old Yammy. If I can plug it in and it sounds good, it will get a lot of use. I love that old plywood beast.
