I have a custom being built and considering a Bagg Five.0 in it. I'm not sure I will use it much but like the idea of getting a looper to play different parts. I also like the idea of easy recording.

I purchase a SBT from JJB - basically a K & K Twin Spot but have not installed it. I've read about sound noise but the price was right and I think it will go into my Fluke.

Wondering now about sound hole mics. How are they for sound. I won't be playing out much. I'd like to record. Perhaps loop at lower volumes. GHS make a fairly inexpensive unit. MiniFlex in CA make a very cool two mic unit for about what it will cost me to get a Five.0 into my custom. What are the pro's and con's of options.

Anybody have comments from using any or all of the above options?

You should really ask your builder.

My very biased comments - LRBaggs. But that's for me, and my instruments. Your builder may very well have a different opinion.

My builder hasn't done too many pickups but will put in whatever I want. Baggs Five.0 was my interest because I've heard the MiSi vrs Baggs comparison. Just curious about the sound hole mic and wonder what its like?

I like the baggs over an under soundboard pu. I've never used a sound hole mic. One thing to consider is a regular mic like a Shure 57. you can use it for any instrument and even vocal, which is a lot of fun with a looper as you can add percussion, harmonica , etc. but then you need a USB preamp if you want to use your computer to record.
