The first thing you’ll notice about the Rare Earth is just how easily and cleanly it installs in your guitar. The pickup’s low profile design ensures that both your picking style and the guitar’s acoustic tone are not affected. To reduce the weight and improve the performance of the pickup, Fishman utilizes tiny, powerful neodymium pole-piece magnets, precisely voiced for balanced natural sound, whether you use bronze or phosphor bronze strings. Plug in the pickup and you’ll hear the brilliant acoustic quality that has changed so many peoples’ minds about soundhole pickups.
