Testimonials

I want to express my deepest gratitude to the team at LMII.  When I started making guitars 26 years ago, my first guitar was made from wood that I ordered from the LMI catalog (there was no internet back then). Since then, the team at LMI has been nothing short of excellent!  The products and services are second to none.  My only regret is that I waited 26 years to say...THANK YOU!

Respectfully, 
Tony Vines

Highlander™ Acoustic Pickup

PICKUPAcousticHighlanderEIP1600

Bob Wolstein teamed up with Rick Turner to develop the Highlander™ acoustic pickup. Using highly sophisticated computer circuit simulation software in conjunction with listening tests in Jackson Browne's Groove Master recording studio, they've come up with a fully integrated pickup system including preamp for acoustic nylon or steel string instruments.

This under saddle pickup is a new and unique design with a coaxial transducer that is sensitive along the full length of the saddle—making it useful for any string spacing, including acoustic bass guitars.

The preamp, which is enclosed in an extension of the endpin, is a discreet class A-type circuit with separate stages for buffering the pickup input and driving the guitar cable and amplifier. Hum and circuit noise are imperceptible. Intermodulation distortion is reduced to provide good clarity for chording.

The system is self-contained and requires no soldering. Endpin is threaded type 9/16" x 12 NC tap type. 9V battery holder is affixed to the inside of the guitar with foam tape.
