I had a guitar laying around and bought Rocksmith Guitar and Bass - Playstation 3 to learn how to play it.
Since it didn't have a cable entry built-in the guitar, I needed a pick up and struggled a long time with the one made by AXL Acoustic Guitar Transducer Pickup with 1/4 Jack and 9 Foot Cable that din't stay in place.
This one works just perfect with the Planet Waves 1/4 Inch Female Stereo Coupler.
This way I didn't have to buy a new acoustic-electric guitar while I'm not sure I'll be any good at it.
It's super easy to install too! Since it has a fold-able adjustment in the back it seems it can fit about any guitar with a sound hole.

I do not usually write review, but this product is so worth it that I want to tell others. Recently I have tried three other acoustic pickups but none of them delivered satisfactory output. Then I came across this one. It is amazing that the sound is clear without any noise. It does not sound amplified like others, but the sound can be loud without being distorted. There is no humming noise or buzz around it, giving a clear note from your guitar. You can also hear the strings vibrate after you hit the bass strings. It is of professional quality but yet costs only half of the other more popular product I have tried. It fits my classical guitar with a small soundhole while others cannot. It even fits my 3/4 guitar. I am sure I will fit my other full size acoustic guitar also. I am very happy with this product.

I am on a very low budget and I rarely play in public, so I'm just an old (76) Cajun having fun and writing some old-man songs. I purchased my first two real solid-body electric guitars withing the past six weeks, plus a really nice (old) acoustic-electric. I've relied on a couple of in-hole pickups for years, even when I was playing solo in Army Clubs in Germany in the 1970s, trying to be the next Kristofferson (I did not make it). I gave my daughter's friend one of my in-hole pickups, and purchased the Woodie Seymour Duncan from Amazon for my 12-string Jasmine. I still have other flat-tops awaiting amplification. Then suddenly, I found myself with a new Rogue resonator acoustic guitar. I ordered the HDE® Guitar Pickup Acoustic / Electric Transducer and used clear tape to attach it just below the neck. Sounded great! Next I used some crazy glue to hold it in place,but the whole deal was clumsy so I removed the pickup and set it aside. After two weeks, I moved the Woodie to my Sea Gull and slipped the HDE into my 12 string Fantastic! A luthier invited me to bring the Rogue and the HDE by and he'd see what could be done, but I'm so happy with the HDE on my 12-string that I'm not going to do it unless I find the $20+ to purchase a second HDE
for the Rogue. Meanwhile, I recommend interested people who don't have all kinds of sophisticated needs to take the plunge and try the HDE or a similar piezo-electric pickup on their acoustical instrument. You are missing out if you don'!

I'm very pleasantly surprised by this product. It is easy to install, even on my three-quarter size guitar. Since the sound hole on my guitar is a little bit smaller than a regular guitar, I had to cock it at a slight angle in order to get the pick ups to line up beneath the strings. That being said, I love the sound of the pick up and I love the simplicity of this product.

I picked this up to try with my Yamaha Acoustic LL6. It is plugged into a Fender Champion 20 and does what its suppose to do and that is amplify the sound of your guitar. You really have to play with the knobs on the amp to get the sound you are looking for and play with the positioning of the pickup on your guitar. I found that I can get the best sound with the pickup on an angle. For some reason as with another buyer of this product, the B string has a much louder electric sound than the rest of the strings. It is really apparent when you play the B string open. The B string actually sounds electric as opposed to the other strings so you have a tendency to change your picking when playing that section of strings. (Yamaha LL6 acoustic guitar). I think I might order the Woody and see which one gives me more of an even tone across all the strings and send one of them back. This was not purchased for the price but all the 5 star reviews. I do not mind paying the price for the Woody if it will give a more even sound across all strings. Not sure I would recommend this product unless I got a bad one. Will update when the Woody gets here.

Big difference for a little more money. Bought the HDE® Guitar Pickup Acoustic / Electric Transducer along with a Fender Champion 20 amp. The HDE worked, but really gave the B and E strings a much louder pickup than the others. I went on you tube to check out some other options and saw some reviews on the Seymour Duncan Woody single coil pickup. It seemed to have a much better overall sound than the HDE so I ordered one and I think there is a big difference and well worth the extra $15.00. It has more of an amplified acoustic overall sound and the B string is a lot softer than the HDE.
