This AXL Acoustic Guitar Transducer Pickup is NOT a pro solution for "the ultimate tone". It IS a git-'er-done way to amplify just about anything that vibrates. I've used it a lot on a classical guitar but also archtops, even a Strat for fun (put it on the back of the headstock). Also I've made recordings using this to augment the built-in pickup(s) on various guitars. The sound is the same as any other stick-on I've used (Dean Markley, Dimarzio). Proper placement is what you need--the "sweet spot" where you get good string balance & it's out of the way of RH movement. The suction cup works perfectly, contrary to other mentions here. You have to moisten it a bit then press firmly in place. Stays put! If you want to fit it into a tight spot, just flip it over & use some Scotch adhesive putty. If you wrap the dangling cord in some soft cloth you'll eliminate most of the static you get from moving around while playing. I think all guitarists would benefit from having one or more stick-on pickups as they are handy & useful. This is a pretty good one and it's cheap. Hence the five stars.

I was concerned when I read the reviews that the AXL Picup didn't hold when applied to an instrument. Hmmm haven't had that problem... I moisten the rubber cup, press it firmly flat and it stays and stays. The sound I get is clean and I've tried it direct into a Behringer mixer, a Danelectro mirco- mini amp and a floor amp. I'm pleased and going to purchase a couple more so that I can pack 'em separately with my instruments. For the price, I didn't expect the value I received. I'm pleased.

If you've got an acoustic guitar that you want to amplify to play open mics and such, then this is for you. It's cheap, not particularly amazing tone, but it will do what it's made to do. It's too quiet to use when jamming with other people, though. I maxed out my amps and still couldn't hear myself over anyone else. But for small solo acoustic performances, this will do just fine.
Like other people have said, lick or dampen the suction cup before sticking it onto the guitar and you shouldn't have any problems with it falling off.

I bought this for my son who plays flamenco guitar. No need to modify guitar with holes. Put the suction cup on the back of the guitar if you want it out of the way. Plug it into an amp and it sounds great.

Got this to adapt an acoustic guitar to the ps3 to play rocksmith. I didn't want to mess with the guitar so this seemed like a good alternative. It kinda works but it has a terrible suction issue. I read some reviews about using some kind of moist. It helps but still won't work well and only last for a little while. I've used it with scotch tape to the guitar as well. And it lasts longer but if you don't get it just perfect it makes these weird noises like when you approach a microphone to an amplifier that is just dreadful. I don't move around with the instrument and nothing I do seems to improve it much. It's a good concept and I think if they alter the suction cup in other versions of this product it could be good. For now you get what you pay for. A cheap product with cheap quality.

First, understand that I had no plans on using this for serious acoustic guitar work. That said, I've been thinking of getting an acoustic amplifier for my acoustic guitars and I ran across this while looking at high-end pickups so I figured what the heck? On top of that, I had been looking for a suction cup pickup for my Zoom H6 for other applications and I didn't care for the ones I found when searching. I just plugged it in to a small electric guitar amplifier without expecting much and was pleasantly surprised that at least it's good enough for goofing around for now while I consider buying more serious equipment. It's sort of a toe-in-the-water for me and I can't complain for this price.

I noticed some complaints about the suction cup not sticking to some peoples' guitars. There are two possibilities that I can see to explain that: 1) Their guitar or other instrument doesn't have a smooth finish that allows a tight seal and, 2) (More likely), they aren't wetting the suction cup before sticking it on their instrument. The guitar I just tried it on has a gloss lacquer finish and it stuck so well that it was actually difficult to remove. Just lick it or, if you're a sissy, wet it with water. I haven't tried it on my oil finished guitar yet but I have no doubt it will stick on that just as well. (In case anyone's wondering, oil finishes don't stay wet. They harden.)

For the money, I can't see any reason to complain. Just don't expect this to perform like a high-end guitar pickup costing hundreds of dollars. I'm looking forward to trying this with other things - like recording phone conversations, etc. It could also be attached to different types of containers, etc., to be used as a makeshift percussion instrument. It's a fun accessory. BTW, the cord is generously long.

This pickup works as well as any other for my classical guitar. Placed just behind the bridge on the treble side it works great. Simple solution to not drilling holes. Suction cup stays on just fine on a matte finish. A little bit of EQ through my Fishman loudbox and this is about as good as one can get without installing a K&K pure classic or buying a whole new guitar. For experimentation with an amplified classical guitar this is just about perfect. It might gain some benefit from being run through an external preamp, but that would cost more than the pickup itself. Can't complain to much for the price.
