Finally took the plunge with my Ischell pickup...

... and had my local guitar tech mount it on the inside of my guitar!

It took a few tries and about an hour of experimentation to get it into the sweet spot, but now it sounds great!

I'm so happy now I can plug my 1/4 inch jack right into the tailpiece. I was always afraid that little thin wire leading to the pickup was going to get broken somehow. Plus the stick-on pickups are kind of ugly.

So now it's inside the guitar, where it's both invisible and out of harm's way... I hope!

That's the good news.

The bad news- I had high hopes for this new D'Addario "circuit breaker" switchable guitar 1/4 inch jack...

...but it didn't mute my guitar worth a hoot! Plus, it made a lot of loud popping noises, just what you don't want!

I'm going to take it back to the music store tomorrow and hope to find another unit which will work.

I just noticed on their website that there are two types, a "momentary" kill switch and a "latched" kill switch... I'm hoping I accidentally got the former and can exchange it for the latter...

I've been using a foot pedal to kill the volume on my guitar whenever I double on banjo, and I'm hoping this new circuit breaker cord will eliminate that bit of extra crap to carry around.

PS Just curious: has anybody tried one of these new Henriksen "Bud" amps yet? They look very interesting!

    Did a bit of research and found that both D'Addario and Taylor make a guitar cable with a built-in volume knob, and guess what?

    Both of their cables get heavily negative reviews online--- unreliable, short-lived, screw up guitar's tone, etc. etc.

    So I'm just wondering... has anybody out there found a good one yet?

    I've got the air and contact mic installed internally and I think it's got a great natural sound. I feel like I do need a volume pedal for a bit of a boost when going from rhythm to soloing though. If you find something, do let me know.

    I think nothing beats a good A/B switch pedal like this one. (If simple on/off is what you want)

    Glad you like the new setup. I have the ugly external jack and I get nervous with the expensive proprietary XLR cable I have to use out of it.

    I use a Redeye preamp for a volume boost for solos and stage DI. Works great. The twin model also allows dual inputs for two pickups or to switch between instruments.
