I have a Seagull S6 cutaway that is purely acoustic and I'm looking to put a pickup in it. I have a Rogue acoustic bass that has a few problems, so it doesn't get played anymore - but it has a piezo undersaddle pickup that works just dandy. I'm thinking about putting the pickup from my bass into the guitar. The nice thing about this pickup is that it's completely passive - tone and volume control, but no tuner, no battery required. I'm thinking that since it's passive it won't be so specific for the bass that it colors the sound of the guitar too much. Any thoughts?
I've installed undersaddle pickups before, so I'm capable of performing the operation. And it's no emergency. At worst, I try it out and it sounds terrible and then I have to spend the money on a decent pickup for the Seagull.
I'm just looking for opinions...
