You can buy my a/e acoustic I'm selling. That's the best, and only option.

Merry Christmas!

I really appreciate that you are giving me the chance to own your guitar. I own several already and they all have built in pickups except the Voyage-air. I have grown quite fond of this little guitar but sad to say it doesn’t have a pickup.

I have 4 acoustics (1 classical), and all are a/e, but I rarely plug-in. I want it for those rare occasions I record with one. They all have a cutaway too.

I even have an uke that's a/e. It cost $250- one of the dumbest music gear purchases I've made, but I wanted an a/e!

Thanks for the very informative links above. I kind of like the microphone idea.

Been everywhere, done everything, seen it all. Put a sound hole pickup in it the old school way and if you don't like the result,you can remove it in 30 seconds.

I also would go soundhole, but they might not fit the Voyage-Air.

Cobra, does it have a standard-sized soundhole? If you do go the soundhole route, get one with adjustable pole pieces as string-to-string balance can be problematic with acoustic strings, and they aren't designed for electric strings.

I measures out to be 3 5/8Ē. Itís the only guitar I have with me so measuring another is out of the question right now.

Apologies for this post. I thought it was Coblat (he goes by Cobalt, but doesn't know how to spell). When you responded, I thought you were, well, you duh.

Glad I provided some links. Hope you found them helpful.

There is no need to apologize at all. I found your response humorous.
Again thanks for the links.
