Pickup and Electronics
The Songwriter Deluxe Standard comes equipped with a Fishman Ellipse Aura pickup and preamp system with endpin jack and sound-hole-mounted controls. This unparalleled system allows the blending of the guitar’s under-saddle piezo pickup with one of four digital sound images that match the instrument’s own tonal characteristics. In addition, the preamp includes controls for volume, phase, anti-feedback, and a two-position low frequency tone-shaping switch. Put it all together, and it’s a brave new world in electro-acoustic pickup and preamp technology.
