The Highlander IP-1S Split Bridge 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. This model has two pickup sensors, designed specifically for guitars with split-saddle bridges (4 strings on one saddle, 2 on the other).
Note: The IP-1S can also be used on a standard single piece saddle, using one sensor for the first three strings and the other sensor for the other three strings. The signals from each sensor will then be combined by the preamp into a single output.
The IP-1S is designed primarily for use in steel string or nylon string acoustic guitars and basses, but has found 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.
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.
Professional installation recommended.
