I just wanted to post about the pickup I had added to my Golden Era. The K&K pure western mini sound so natural and has a lot of output for a passive system. Ellie and the fine folks at Artisan Guitars in Franklin TN recommended this pup and installed it for me. I had a RBII in a Gibson J45 that was nice, but still had a tab bit of the under the saddle brittleness/crunch, way warmer than most, but I wanted to take it to the next level for a purer sound and I think i have it here. I played this am with a full band and cut right thru.
For teh past year I had read a lot of posts and reviews about the K&K western mini and wanted a pup that did not require me to mess with my saddle.
well worth the $150 investement and now my guitar has a great acoustic sound and plugged in to match!
