Volume control is mounted on the pickup and poles are easily adjustable to tailor your output for your guitar/amp set up. A perfect all-in-one recording solution for Apple products and connects to guitar, bass, or any mic, but it already has a studio-quality built-in omnidirectional condenser microphone that's likely as good or better than most home studio.

This guitar is immaculate and the quality of these Korean reissues is better than the original models in my opinion. Easy install: Mounts to soundhole, Velcro attaches battery bag attaches inside your guitar, easy mount end-pin jack.
