The Fishman is.......interesting.....
I have it on my roundneck, and I like it; full, not too brassy/bright, but also not very punchy. I feel like it dulls thoe tone of the resonator, that is, it really produces the prettiest tone, and not always the grittier, snarling blues sound.
On the other hand, I put one in my buddies' squareneck Rogue (overall, a damned impressive guitar) and it sounds HUGE. Still real pretty, but hey - pretty in a lap slide dobro, that's not bad.
Installation was a snap, with one exception: the elbow gasket that was supposed to be included with the p/up wasn't there, and I wasted an afternoon trying to get it to work without. No luck. Called Fishman (great customer support) and figured out the problem, found the gasket at an electronics store, and was playing in 5 minutes.
Overall, I bet it would take about 20 minutes to put one on.
But remember - these are for spider-bridge resonators, and I don't think one would fit on a biscuit.
Also, this all pertains to the Fishman Active p/up.
