No installation is required. The soundhole clip will secure the pickup without any additional modifications. Some people also use some Schertler adhesive putty to keep the pickup secure.
Many find that a right angle cable is more comfortable and prevents the pickup from getting knocked out of place.

Pros: Authentic sound and look!
Cons: Some very minor marking on top of the rosette square.
Sounds like electric Django! Very happy with the authentic sound I get from it. The right angle rca jack is worth getting as well. It's very well made.

Dupont Stimer ST48
Pros: A nice pickup for the electric sound
The Dupont ST48 is a good choice for the 'electric Django' sound. I have one that I use on my Holo guitar and the sound is good and the ease of use is fabulous. I do have one of the older Stimer pickups and the sound of the Dupont is equally good. I'm not sure if they are designed this way, but mine is 'microphonic' - meaning that it picks up the sound of the acoustic instrument. In most applications this would not be a good thing, but I think with the sound of the Selmer guitar it actually adds to the quality of the amplified sound. I tend to use electric strings when I use the pickup, but it will work with the traditional copper strings - the E and B are just a bit louder.
