Default Similar to K&K...

I've been searching for the pick up that some of you have that is "almost" the same as a pre-western mini from K&K. Can't find it. If some of you have those could you tell me how they compare to the K&K and what the heck is the name of them....thanks!

Jeff,
Those JJB pickups are awesome!! I have them in all my guitars. You will be impressed not only with the pickup but with the customer service. The customer service is top notch!!

Jess from JJB is excellent. The pickups work really well and he offers 2 size disks on the 330 model. Go with the smaller size if your guitar is fairly loud and/ or puts out a lot of low end. Tell him Ryan and Kendall from the forums recommended him.

The transducers I build are similar, but are only for installs that I do, as my installation procedure has much to do with the results.

Got this email from a friend, last night: "Hi Jeff, It's Mary. He can hardly put it down. We are all amazed when he plugs it in and it it just sounds louder and more vibrant but not electric. He's having a ball. You made his day and much more!--Mary"

This is a Yamaha FG331 that I'd reworked.
