Two last questions (addressed also to JB or any other guitar tek who might be willing to chime in..).
1) I play mostly fingerstyle, so my L32 has a wider than standard custom neck width at the nut, which is 46mm (1,8") and at the bridge 60 mm (2,36") so the spacing of the strings are somewhat wider than in the standard acoustic guitars (4-5mm wider at the bridge and also 5mm wider above the soundhole). That means that each string will not be exactly aligned just above each pole of a soundhole magnet pickup.
Would that be a problem for the soundhole magnet to pickup correctly each string vibration, or not ???
2) also the soundhole of L32 has slightly larger diameter due to it's Jumbo size (10,5 cm or 4,13") than a non-Jumbo guitar and I was wondering if the magmic has enough clamp space to be supported on that size-hole (I guess it could be clamped a little bit closer to the guitar neck than on a non-Jumbo guitar, but I just want to make sure it does before I buy it). The specification of the Seymour Duncan Mag-mic in the site is referred for. My L32 has a soundhole 0,03" wider than the upper limit specification of the pickup.High-quality 6- and 12-string acoustic guitars with sound holes between 3.85" and 4.10."
vasilis wrote:Rick, I intend to use the temporary installation of this pickup on my guitar, since I play mostly acoustic (I haven't bought it yet). Is the pickup easily removed from the soundhole (do you need to remove any strings or just slacken some of them?)
Also, is the connection with the battery pack permanent, or does it have a jack that you can plug and unplug from the pickup any time you want and leave the battery pack inside the guitar?
The battery pack wiring is soldered onto tabs on the base of the pickup.
I have mine installed with the NP9 watch batteries attached to the pickup itself

I read the installation instructions and they refer to temporary installation in which you have the battery holder attached on the neck block and the cable running out of the soundhole. I wonder how one could easily remove the pickup from the guitar since it is soldered with the cable of the battery holder which is attached on the neck block. I guess, one might have to detach the battery holder as well, so this option isn't really a temporary installation.

vasilis wrote:What about the Mi-Si Duo Magnetic?
vasilis wrote:- do you think it would fit to the wider string spacing of my L32 (as I wrote in my previous post)
vasilis wrote:- can you remove it easily without having to remove any strings? (just slacken them)
vasilis wrote:- could I pass both cables (K&K contacts, Mi-Si mag) from the end-pin hole (so I won't have to drill a 2nd hole)
vasilis wrote:Rick, I really appreciate your tips, thanks a lot for your time...
vasilis wrote:I guess one solution for me is to keep the Mi-Si magnetic Duo temporarily installed, ie cable passing out of the soundhole (since I mostly play acoustic at home) and install (permanently of course) the K&K contacts.
vasilis wrote:I will consider the Baggs M1a also in combination with K&K contacts or an internal mic, I guess both cables could be wired into the end-pin jack, and just unplug the mag from the wiring whenever I want, right?
vasilis wrote:Can that magnet also be removed by just slackening strings like the Mi-Si, or you need to remove some strings?
