Default L R Baggs Anthem into Martin DR Centennial ?

Hi All, Just wondering if anyone has had problems fitting the L R Baggs Anthem (pickup & Tru-mic system) controls into the Martin DRC due to the forward X Bracing?

I did notice that someone on amazon had reported that it wouldn't fit into a Martin 00015M due to the "A" bracing style, and had to fit the 'SL' version instead.

If you contact L.R. Baggs they will be able to tell you and they are always quick at getting back in touch. They may suggest the Anthem SL if the full size won’t fit.

This is the reply I received back from L R Baggs email support:-


"I took a look at the guitar you purchased and did a bit of research on the bracing pattern. You should be able to get the Anthem installed in your guitar with no problem. The only thing that may impact this is if the sound hole support braces are placed differently. From what I could tell the support braces should not be in a different place, but it is a possibility."

And I also asked the LR Baggs forum and had this reply:-

"The forward-shifted X-bracing hasn't ever caused specific issues with the Anthem as far as I know. It's usually only a problem if the soundhole bracing is taller than normal. I've installed the Anthem on shifted-braced Martins before with no trouble.

If you have the guitar already, you can reach your finger in the soundhole and feel for the brace. If it is a "popsicle stick" brace (flat), the Anthem should fit just fine (barring any additional changes that I haven't come across)."


So really good and swift response from L.R. Baggs
