Default Help! Help me identify this pick up

I just bought a second hand Larrivee and would like to find out what pickup this is.
It's passive but sounds amazing.

Cheerios

It's likely to be a Fishman AG series or something similar.

If that was my guitar, next time I had the strings off I would be repositioning the wire so that it wasn't taped to the soundboard, e.g. just tape it to the bracing.

It's a passive under-saddle transducer of which there aren't many. There's no way to really know so it could be a L.R. Baggs LB6. If it's an AG series the end-pin jack has been replaced because that doesn't look like a Fishman factory jack to me but anything's possible. Pulling up the transducer from the top would yield much more information.

Thanks for that.
It's was taped to the bracing after the picture was taken

Really hard to tell from just the wire. Like said above
The pickup is on top under the saddle.

LR Baggs LB6 doesn’t have black wire.

Looks like a Martin thin line I put in an old Epiphone. Has about the same size black wire and the back end of the strap jack has a screw on cap just like the one in your picture. These thin line are passive.
