The Highlander IP-1 Acoustic Guitar Pickup system is used by thousands of musicians including many of the world's top players. Highlander's integrated pickup and preamp sets new standards in acoustic sound reproduction.
The IP-1 is designed primarily for use in steel string or nylon string acoustic guitars and basses, but has founds its way into everything from resonator guitars to kotos. The pickup is a unique under-the-saddle coaxial transducer. It is very flexible and is ideal for any string spacing. It can be shortened using a sharp pair of wire cutters.
The pickup is connected to a true Class A audiophile-quality preamplifier that is housed in a metal tube and mounted on the endpin jack. This preamp's level of ultra-low noise and distortion has to "not" be heard to be believed.
Note! The installation of this pickup requires tapping the threads into the endpin hole, and routing the slot for the pickup in the bottom of the saddle slot. We have these tools available if you need them. We recommend professional installation.
