I've got a Takamine EG540SC guitar, and I've had it for years. I've gigged with it every other week/month and I love it, and although I do like the sound from the stock pickup, I'm now needing a wee bit more.
I play in a duo, just me on the guitar and female vocalist. We've scored a pretty big gig over the Xmas period so we're looking to step up our game a wee bit, and one thing I'm hoping to do is a bit of looping to add more depth to the songs.
I just don't think the stock pickup is doing a good job of it - when i'm hitting the various parts of the guitar for different sounds, it just sounds really shite to be honest!
I'm guessing I need a better under-saddle pickup? Can I buy any, and have it fitted, or will it have to be a specific pup that'll fit my guitar?
Also, which kinds/models would you recommend to get me some good "percussion" tones from my guitar body.
Cheers in advance
