    I am pretty sure that @ICBM passed comments on these two products - amongst others - in a thread about installing electronics into a baby acoustic guitar. Chances are, he has installed both products at some time and formed an opinion of their relative merits.

    Not me... I've never tried the M80.

    I had an M1A for a while - I liked it at first, but after a while I started to notice an annoying midrange 'overtoney' sound to it which grated too much when I began to hear it all the time.

    I have both actually - well actually the M1a is the takemine version, but its the same pickup.  At a recent gig, the sound engineer said of my simon & patrick acoustic which has the m80 in it that it was the best sounding acoustic he'd ever heard.    The other guitar player had a 2k moon semi acoustic (not sure which pickup it was but it was piezo I think)

    Personally I find them they're both excellent.  Not sure the M80 is worth the extra mullah tho.
