I Have 6 giutars. 3  Acoustic Electrics , 3 straight accoustics. Every once in a while I have an opportunity or want/urge to be able to plug in 1 of my Acoustics for a song or 2. I don't really want to install  another LR Baggs or simular pick-up. Would like to be abe to remove it and use it on a different Acoustic when needed. I've looked at the Seymour Duncan "Woody" and a couple others simular to this one. Any Suggestions or thoughts? (I have checked the site and only found posts about a more permanant pick-up) Thanks!

The Seymour Duncan "Acoustic Tube" is the very best and most realistic sounding soundhole pickup I have ever used and I have tested/own a bunch of different ones...  This pickup is very easy to install/remove without loosening/removing the strings, which is more difficult with some of the other designs. Reasonably priced too.  I never had much luck getting good sound out of any of the wooden ones...

A newer option is the iRig, which simply attaches to the soundhole. I have one and it works pretty well, but you do have to deal with the wire running from the guitar, and also have to clip the receiver pack either on your strap or belt/pocket.

iRig Acoustic Stage

I've also used this on my ukulele live and it works great (it has settings for both steel and nylon strings).

I use the original iRig Acoustic lot for quick recordings into devices.

The iRig Acoustic Stage is better suited to live and will plug into anything. They’re very natural sounding and a breeze to move between instruments.

They also sound great on acousitc bass and baritone, and they fit into pretty much any sound-hole

The only soundhole pickup that was ever worth a da** to my ear has been a D’armond  260.

I second that choice.  I have touted it on the forum many times.  I have 2 of them.  They may have been discontinued.  If you can find one, get it.
