“It sounds great for live use, running through your P.A., its gonna sound great, really natural, but the best thing about it is its sonic flexibility. You can basically have one and put it on any of your guitars giving you a lot of flexibility, without having to modify your guitar.” - Dino Meneghin
The L .R. Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Magnetic Pickup delivers a balanced sound, amplifying the natural lows and highs of your acoustic guitar by capturing both string and soundboard vibrations, creating a huge and natural sound from one pickup. The M1 includes a built-in all Class A discrete preamp along with L.R. Baggs' exclusive patent pending Tri-Axial Dynamic Technology dual-coil design providing pristine, full tones with outstanding body sensitivity that resist feedback, and noise and hum, without cutting out string and body sound. You can easily adjust the volume with the fingertip control. The M1 Active also features individually adjustable pole pieces with smooth, threadless tops allowing for the perfect balance in any acoustic guitar.
The M1 Active will fit guitars with sound holes larger than 3.5" that are centered beneath the strings. Ensure that this product will fit the guitar properly before installing the strapjack. The installation procedure is very simple; however, we recommend that any woodworking (for instance, drilling a strapjack hole) be performed by a professional dealer/installer. We do not provide advice or support for home or hobbyist wood working.
Installers: Please read the instructions carefully before proceeding. We will not be responsible for any damageto the guitar or personal injury resulting from installation, improper installation, use or misuse of the product.

This is one of the best pickups I've ever found myself toying around with. I've used a handful of sound hole, suction cup, clip on, and piezo pickups over the years and this one proves to be one of the best.
It has a very warm low-end with very crisp highs. Although I've only just started to dive in to tinkering with the height of the posts and different string materials, it works wonders right out of the box.
Since there is a bit of drilling involved for a first time install, I would recommend taking it to someone whose got a bit of woodworking experience.
