A little beauty

By: on 9 November 2023
I play a waldzither, a '30s instrument from Germany. It was falling apart so had it repaired, hoping to be able to play it at the Fleurieu Folk Festival a couple of weeks ago. Got it back a week out from the Festival and remembered that I hated my old acoustic pickup; it buzzed at every opportunity and couldn't be relied on to not feed back if I got close to an amp. Artist had this Guitto acoustic pickup for sale and the Artist gear I have bought in the past has always been excellent quality, so I lashed out and bought one. It arrived 3 days before The Day, so I had a little time to play with the positioning of the two pickups. Probably spent two-three hours just playing with positions and in the end went with a position halfway between bridge and soundhole, about three fingers width out from the strings on either side. It sounded great on my acoustic amp, but I was very nervous about taking it to the venue where I had to plug into an unknown amp being miked into the PA. Needn't have worried in the slightest. The pickup worked like a charm, reproducing the woody, solid, and dramatic sound of the 'zither as it is. No feedback, even when I backed up to the amp. A couple of finger squeaks on the strings but they were pretty muted overall. The pickup attachments worked perfectly and they stayed solidly attached. This pickup is a winner, particularly at the other pickup, the one I hate, was nearly double the price and performed about a quarter as well. The only caveat I have is that the leather button attachment for the output lead was too thick to use with an instrument strap so I had to use a razor blade to enlarge the hole and shave some of the leather off. But that's a personal thing and doesn't touch on the performance of this brilliant pickup. Buy one; you can't go wrong.

Mandolin pickup

I'm very happy so far with the little pickup. So far it's working extremely well. The only downside is the attachment for the cable plug doesn't fit my end pin (the end pin is too short...may have to fit a different one)so I've had to be creative

I use this PU on my violin to go busking and it sounds great. No feedback or poor tone comes from this unit. Would buy it again and I use it all the time. Very satisfied Artist customer for many years.

Guittto GGP03 Piezo Contact Acoustic guitar Pickup

By: on 23 March 2023
I have a Resonator guitar that has a single coil pickup, but live, it sounded more like a standard electric guitar coming out of FOH because it was projecting the signal generated by the single coil pickup rather than the guitar itself. The Guitto GGP03 Contact Pickup picks up the real sound of the Resonator acoustic sound and has fundamentally changed the sound to that of a true Resonator. I love it. Thanks.

Just a honest review.

By: on 16 January 2023
Hi Guys , This is my honest review. I have no intention to beat this product down. I bought this one after reading all the excellent reviews and because of price point. My expectation was way high up after reading all those positive review. But in reality, it doesn't produce the sound that all those reviews said and I'm a little disappointed. Out of the box , it produces overly trebly sound which is no where near the acoustic guitar sound. In fact it doesn't even close to the acoustic sound that I want. Sorry to say, it just produce ugly tone. I need to EQ by turning treble all the way down and also need to turn down the mid to make it produce a little better tone. This is just my experience but other people may find it OK. After adjustment, it is ok to play alone but still not good enough to plug into other system and play together with other players. Artist sell this but I believe this is not artist product. I will continue buying from Artist for other equipment as I believe their own product are good value for money. Thank you

Guitto GGP03 Piezo Guitar Pickup

By: on 4 January 2023
I installed this pickup internally on my baritone uke. A bit interesting working inside the uke using mirrors but with a bit of ingenuity worked out ok. I removed the double sided adhesive from the pickups using acetone to soften and then a piece of sharp box cutter blade to get under the tape. Finished cleaning with acetone (carefully) and then abraded the brass pickup surfaces with 240 grit paper. Bonded the pickups under the bridge reinforcement timber using Devcon epoxy. That's the interesting bit! Basically each pickup ended up under 2 strings. Playing the uke through my son's medium size Vox guitar amplifier sounds great. Very happy with the installation at a bargain price.

Great pick up

By: on 9 December 2022
The Guitto pick up certainly punches above it's weight . I had used other more expensive pick ups on my baritone uke and was disappointed . The Guitto gave me the sound I wanted at a bargain basement price . Would highly recommend .

I had used other pick ups with my Joyo BSK 60 amp . Was disappointed with them . The sound was way off acoustic sounding . I purchased the Guitto GGp03 and it made my amp sing . Very impressed . Another winner from Artists Guitars .

Surprising bargain

My luthier friend was a bit dubious when we installed this into my lap dulcimer, but neither of us expected it to be as clear., so maybe you don't have to break the bank for a pickup...

What you see is what you get - a great external pickup and it is adaptable to any acoustic instrument. And it is interchangeable. Most important is the sound - Great sound production and great price. Thanks

The usual AG value-for-money

By: on 11 February 2021
I had an acoustic guitar I wanted to amplify, and I figured I had four choices:- (1) investing in a good microphone; (2) installing Fishman-style piezo pickup gear in the instrument; (3) getting a magnetic soundhole unit, or (4) attaching something like this Guitto with contact pickups that sit behind the bridge. I admit I have more than enough guitars already (ask my wife!) — all either electric or acoustic-electric — but I recently picked up a passable classical acoustic at a secondhand shop. Its price didn’t justify options #1 or #2, and #3 was out for nylon strings, so I settled for #4. I didn’t know anything about this GGP03 but, having bought from Artist Guitars many times before, I figured it would be a safe bet. Presentation is surprisingly good — rather than all the pieces being tossed into a plastic bag like some such kits, you get a neatly laid-out box with slots for everything. (See AG’s photo.) Installation is a piece of cake. There’s even a Youtube video specifically for this model if you need it. The only slightly confusing thing that held me up for a minute was the apparent inclusion of a few extra washers which seemed to have no purpose — I suspect they come into play if the jack is installed through the body of a guitar(?), which is obviously not the application here. The bits and pieces have been well thought out — there are ten extra double-sided stickers supplied in case your contact pickups eventually become “un-sticky” (probably unlikely, unless you’re frequently moving the unit from one guitar to another), four small cable guides if you want to pin the cables down to the instrument’s surface, and even a couple of cable ties for the same sort of purpose. (I personally think the latter make the installation look messy, so I’ve given them a miss — no real need anyway.) I had lift-off within five minutes, and the result through my Fishman Loudbox was better than I’d expected — mellow, with a reasonable blend across the various string frequencies, and an acceptable volume level. Of course, the tonal result will depend on the quality of your instrument (and what out-board EQ’ing you choose to add), but I’d have to say that my cheap classical sounds quite presentable. Undoubtedly, it would be better with a higher-end guitar. Of course, the downside of a pickup like this is that there are no on-board Volume/EQ controls, but those enhancements come at a cost, and typically require cutting largish holes in your guitar, and perhaps adjusting the bridge to compensate for the addition of a rod piezo — jobs perhaps best done by a pro, unless you’re confident in your own luthier skills. Is this the world’s best pick-up? Of course not. For the money, does it do the job to an acceptable standard? I say yes, particularly as I saw other sites charging an extra 75% above AG’s price for this same model, so I have no complaints. For value-for-money, I give it five stars.

A huge thank you for this awesome review and I have sent you an email to clarify some questions about the included washers. Cheers!

Great Product

This product has been awesome. Have used on an acoustic guitar and violin with great success. Easier to play well without having to be limited to being near a microphone.
