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.
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. The 14 foot cord is beefy and it has a quality 1/4 inch plug.
There were some comments that you need an amp bigger than 20 watts to make this work. NOT TRUE! My vol is set to a 7 out of 10 on the vol and 4 out of 10 on the gain and works just fine on my practice amp. (I do not play in a band, just bang my strings at home) I am very happy with this combination with out having to buy and electric guitar at least for now. I have a Yamaha LL6 acoustic guitar and with this pickup I have have the best of both worlds. If you want perfection than go to you-tube and see the reviews of the ones that cost a few hundred dollars. Enjoy!
PS: For the money and the different sound it produces, I am not returning the HDE.
Overall I do recommend this Acoustic Guitar pickup.
Overall I would buy this again if I needed to.

- It has lasted 4 years so far.
- Sound quality is good.
- There are no cons and nothing that I do not like about it.
--- Interesting Facts: Neither Pro or Con ---
- I wish there was a cheap wireless one that was this good.

This pickup truly transforms a pure acoustic Seagull into an amazing acoustic electric worthy of the big (to me) stage. I am not a professional musician, but I have done several concerts as a guitarist.
I had to perform a couple concerts in front of 3-400 people with my Seagull Acoustic Electric SM-6 and did not want to shell out a couple extra hundred dollars to purchase a new one, so when I searched for alternative I was skeptical at first. I love the sound and the depth of the Seagull acoustic, and none of the acoustic electrics by them at the time that I had tried sounded as good, so having this was a game changer for me.
Sometimes I plugged right into the main system, and other times I plugged into an amp that they had mic’d up and both times worked out amazing. People had no idea that this was an inexpensive add on.
It is has lasted strong all these years, so if I ever lost it I would not hesitate to purchase this again.
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'!
