It works perfectly and sounds great.
John Simmer
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.

My Ukelele and acoustic guitar sound awesome through my amp.

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.

For 15 bucks this little pickup communicates all of the warmth and tone of the body of your acoustic steel string or classical guitar. You need to lick it, or moisten it a little to make it stay on. Mount it out of the way of your hands/fingers and where it won't get pulled on by the cord a lot if you move around a little. But the sound quality is actually pretty great. The cord is pretty long too... A soundhole pickup with single coils, such as DiMarzio and others make, just turns your acoustic guitar into a kind of lame electric guitar signal. At least that's my experience. This surface mounted pickup actually is a contact microphone that recieves the vibrations, sound and tone right from the surface of your wood box. I just think it sounds WAY more like my guitar really sounds, but up close and louder, without worrying about keeping the guitar close to a mic as you play...

The pickup did not stay attached to my ukulele for more that 15 seconds. I have a satin/natural finish rather than gloss. Amazon refunded no problem but a waste of time.

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.

I've only owned this product for about 2 months. I've tested it several times in my house. I played for a small gathering outside at a birthday party. I love it, because it's very affordable and it gets the job done. Not sure I can be of any help if you want advice on a serious or large gathering of folks to play for. Keep in mind, the chord that comes with it, is probably on the low end side I'm guessing, so it might be finicky. Mine was. What I did to keep it from going dead, was taped part of the chord to the underside of my guitar to keep it "connected" so to speak. When you tap the pickup on your guitar it sounds like tapping a live mic. I position it close to the bottom side of the bridge. I am not a perfectionist on amplifying my classical guitar. If you aren't, then I think you'll love it. I am currently playing it through my fender hot rod deluxe (40 watt tube amp for electric guitar !) and so far it's working good. I only go to volume 2 or 2.5 on the clean channel, and i make sure the bass and mid is down and the treble is midway. I'm sure if you have an "accoustic" amp, then even better for this product.
