This pickup is truely a wonderful experience for me as it has immensely improved the amplified sound of my Fender 12 string & Yamaha acoustic guitars. It has a very bright but warm and well balanced sound. The output you get from it very dynamic and so natural. I used it even with my Hi Fi system and it just produces amazing sound quality with lot of natural warmth and clarity with almost no feedback at high volume unless you are sitting very close to amp. My friends are amazed with the sound it produces. It has a very nice finishing with real maple wood enveloping the magnets so beautifully thats it just looks like a part of your guitar. I even used some effects pedals and it justified all of them remarkably.The cable is of high quality with a metal high quality jack so no problem faced to me so far. The pickup has slots with very durable and soft sponge type pads to prevent your valuable guitar sound hole from scratches. It can comes on and go off very easily in minutes. The pickup unit is very solid indeed as it does not feel like a toy but has got the guts to handle and face all the rough handling while using at home or on the road. I think no one should miss this incredible stuff as it can even make a cheap acoustic guitar sound like pros. Now please do not think over and over again, simply go and get it. Thanks & regards.

If I were rating purely on sound, I'd give this pickup a full 5 stars. But there is a significant amount of hum if you're not sitting EXACTLY in a particular position in relation to your amp; then the hum goes away completely. I have another acoustic with active pickup (bult-in, came installed). I don't have a hum problem with that guitar, regardless of how much I move around, regardless of the position of the pickup in relation to the amp. I'm a believer in Seymour Duncan's products, and want to give him the benefit of the doubt, so I've ordered the HC version to see if this might alleviate the hum issue; I'm expecting it probably will, and I'll just return the SC version for a refund from Guitar Center. Not having a volume control on the unit is a bit limiting, but TONE is the main thing, and the tone is BEAUTIFUL! I can always get a volume pedal, or make sure to have amp PA controls within arm's reach. I don't know what kind of strumming some of the reviewers do, but I didn't find the cord to be in the way. AT ALL. It trails away, downward and out of the way; maybe they're not installing it correctly? That's the only thing I can think of. One reviewer commented that it wasn't loud enough without a pre-amp, again I don't see the problem, if plugged into a guitar amp or PA 1/4" phone out; both of those have a VOLUME control. What seems like a possibly bigger issue in certain settings is that since the pickup's in the soundhole, you can't install a soundhole plug, so at a certain volume, you're gonna hit a "ceiling" anyway regarding volume: you're gonna get feedback if your on-stage volume is too high. Just keep the monitor volume as much as possible, and crank it through the Mains. Bottom line: If you stay in one position and don't move around a lot, such as being seated (as a lot of acoustic players do) you probably won't find the hum objectionable, as you can position yourself to nullify that. If you tend to move around a lot while playing, you're gonna have a hum problem, noticeable especially during quieter passages. I'm hoping the hum-cancelling version will take care of that limitation. If it doesn't, I'll probably still go with a Seymour Duncan, and keep the SC ($10 less than HC). Cuz like I said, you can't beat the TONE! And tone is EVERYTHING.

Comments about Seymour Duncan Woody SC Single-Coil Soundhole Pickup:

I tried a Dean Markley with my 12 stringed Acoustic guitar (Yamaha) and I felt a lot of lose in the first and last string. This means that only the 3th string had good sound. And without trying this pickup I thought that I was going to be the same... But then I pluged this to a nice amp that I had at a friend's house and I fell in love! Good and strong sound, nothing but what it needed in trebles as also had in basses. After that, I pluged this pickup to my Zoom G2.1u and turned off all the effects and I listened to it with a pair of monitor headphones and of course the response was awesome! The best part is that comes with a nice cloth bag. After 5 years in the "Conservatorio Plurinacional de Música" here in La Paz, Bolivia, I've heard a lot of sounds... but this is one of the best ones.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan Woody SC Single-Coil Soundhole Pickup:

    I just got a home studio set up. This has worked wonderful to hook into my condenser and record acoustic guitar and vocals. The pros it fits in both of my acoustic guitars. It gives a good sound, and does wonders for recording. The cons: it doesn't really have a manual so if it breaks/ isn't working correctly there's no resource to troubleshoot.

        I own high-end Takamine handmade AE's and Taylor acoustics. This pickup makes my Taylor Big Baby travel guitar sound like my model 810. I'm thinking of getting a cheap Seagull S6 with a wide fretboard and selling my expensive AE guitars.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan Woody SC Single-Coil Soundhole Pickup:

        I put this in a Weissenborn.It works great! The soundhole is only 3 1/2" but by removing the black spongey material with a long pin and cutting off about a third of it and replacing it, it works fine. Love the sound; very warm.

        Sounds great, but not built for guitars with smaller soundhole

        By Alex Page

        from Madison, WI

        Comments about Seymour Duncan Woody SC Single-Coil Soundhole Pickup:

        I had this pickup delivered to my local GC store. When it came, I took it home and opened it right away. It looked nice and the instructions were simple enough; there are two slots in the ends of the pickup with a type of foam rubber in them, and to get it on your guitar, you just slide the pickup under the treble side strings and push the pickup underneath and squish the foam in the bass side notch until the treble side of the pickup slips into the soundhole and this foam rubber cozily holds it in place. However, I have a guitar with a smaller soundhole, so to fit this pickup in, I had to remove the foam rubber from the bass side notch, trim a little off, and replace it. Not too hard, but a little more difficult than the instructions made it out to be. Also, as most pickups do, this one requires a preamp to increase the volume to a level that is more than barely audible. Other than the install, however, this is a wonderful product and sounds great.

        My acoustic came alive with this pickup. I was skeptical about purchasing this verses having a pickup installed. It does a great job.
