Acoustic, Trouble-Free and Loud
Choice of Pros
Currently in its 18th year of production, the LB6 Acoustic Guitar Pickup is still the favorite acoustic guitar pickup of many top pros. Night after night, artists like Thom Bresh, Ben Harper, Janis Ian, Eric Johnson, Earl Klugh, Lenny Kravitz, Kathy Mattea and James Taylor trust the LB6 to convey their music to audiences around the world.Important Aspects
There are three key features that are unique to the LB6. First, the pickup itself is a saddle that has six individual sensors, one per string, cast right into it. Because the sensors are an integral part of the connection between the strings and guitar body, maximum sensitivity and signal transfer is guaranteed. Second, the sensors themselves are responsive to vibration as well as to pressure. This blends the natural warmth of the body vibrations with the presence and attack of the strings. Third, the LB6 contains an exclusive feedback inhibiting circuit. It is the most feedback resistant, nonmagnetic acoustic guitar pickup available. If you play acoustic guitar loud but still want it to sound acoustic, you owe it to yourself to check out the LB6.Construction
The saddle materials are chosen to conduct sound like the original saddle. It will not alter the acoustic tone of the guitar perceptibly nor will it change its look. It can be shaped, sanded and intonated just like the original saddle. The pickup has a high output and may be plugged directly into most guitar amps or effects. It is 100% shielded and it is whisper quiet. Each pickup is individually hand built with pride to insure the highest level of performance and reliability.

Comments about LR Baggs LB6 Acoustic Guitar Pickup:
Actually, I own the LB12 which is nothing more than the LB6, but only for the 12 string. I own two Martin 12 string guitars and both of them have the LB12 installed in them and have never regretted installing them. They are the sweetest acoustic guitar pickup on the market. You'd swear your guitar was being miked by one of the best condenser mikes on the market. That is the only way I can describe how good the Baggs sounds. I do mike mine just intentionally for getting the sound that is being projected from the soundhole as well. You will not get any feedback from this pickup either. Believe me, I have tried them all, only to be disappointed in the sound, especially disappointed with the brand Fishman, which are simply junk and cannot hold up to the Baggs. So do yourself a favor and buy the best. Get a LR Baggs LB6 or LB12 and be happy for life.
