I'm having a lot of trouble getting the volume and tone controls on a Fishman pickup to stay glued to the inside of the sound hole. I tried several types of 3m double face tapes with poor results. After several days the tapes give way. Can anyone tell me the tape to use so it will stay put. Thanks for any help.

I finally contacted Fishman and here is what they told me. Use a water base sealant and seal the area were you are going to mount the controls. It worked. The key was WATER BASE SEALANT. Fishman will also send you a new double face mounting tape for the asking.

Glad to hear of success. I use "heavy duty double face carpet tape" occasionally for tasks around the shop and I'd certainly give it a try for something like that. Most of the time the heavy-duty stuff sticks TOO well, so I also use the standard carpet tape where I need to pry something apart easily.
