fishman rare earth blend pickup


Recommended Posts

Hello :)


I'm new to this forum and hoping for a bit of advice re. buying a new guitar.


I've been playing for years but have rarely changed guitars and I'm now looking for either an electro-acoustic that sounds as natural as possible when amplified, or an acoustic which I can have fitted with a decent pickup.


A friend has recommended that I get a nice acoustic and fit a Fishman Rare Earth Blend pickup, the idea being that the mic component will give the natural/non-piezo quality I'm looking for. I'd love to hear from anyone who can comment on the merits of this idea as opposed to getting an electro-acoustic, or anyone who can recommend me a really nice, non-scratchy sounding electro-acoustic. I don't seem to be finding one so far! I strum more than I play finger style, but I do play finger style too.


Ideally I don't want to spend more than about £1000, which is around $1500, but I would stretch that for something that was just right.


I'd be very grateful for input from the experienced and knowledgeable people around here. :) Thank you
