    Hi!
    I was looking for a cheap/good sounding Rolling Eyes soundhole pickup for a Yamaha FS413s steel string acoustic. I need the pikup for live gigs. Running on a budget.

    We also dont have any good luthiers here, so i would prefer something which has a cable coming out direct which i can DI, and not have drill any holes in the body.... I would not like to exceed a 100USD, cheaper maybe.

    thanks a lot

    I have had decent results with a couple of Seymour Duncan under-the-strings magnetic pick-ups. The "Acoustic Tube" sounds pretty good, $80.00...The "Woody" is available in a humbucking model,$50.00...You should be prepared to change over to nickel electric guitar strings if you go with these, especially the "Woody".
    I believe that both of them have a cable designed to run right out of them to a DI or amp.
