"I came across this little dobro guitar pickup and purchased one to compare to my built in pickup. It is a preamp with a 1/4" jack and 3" gooseneck mic. I tried it with my acoustic amp and the sound is great with no distortion and virtually no feedback. It can be moved to other guitars since it mounts with a suction cup, either on the coverplate or the guitar. The gooseneck mic just sticks down in a coverplate hole. Now I have a pickup with a built in preamp that needs only one cord. The internal lithium battery will power the unit for hundreds of hours and is replaced by removing two small screws. Here's why I love it. It sounds great, it's small, it can be moved around to use on multiple guitars, it has a volume knob, it eliminates the need for an external preamp, it's reasonably priced. Would I purchase it again? In a heartbeat! Oh, and did I mention that it sounds great?"
