Yves Guen ST51
Pros: a great pickup for an acoustic archtop
I bought this to put on an archtop and it works perfectly. I put a felt dot under the treble side of the pickup and a piece of putty under the bass side of the pickup to keep it from sliding up and down on the mounting rod. The sound is very warm and full, like the ST48 model. With Argentine strings the B string is slightly louder, but not enough to interfere with playing, In fact, it produces that old 40's - 50's electric sound very well. With electric strings it has a classic, rich archtop sound. It is made to be used without a pickguard.
