The Fishman Neo-D Single Coil is based on the design of the famed Rare Earth pickups; this more affordable relative really lives up to the Fishman name and has the added convenience of not needing a battery!
Easy to fit
Exceptionally easy to install, the Fishman Neo-D Single Coil just clips on to the soundhole of your acoustic guitar and you simply plug in to the attached ¼” jack plug, mounted on a lengthy lead. This pickup will fit soundholes as small as 3-7/8” (98.5mm), so compatibility should not be a worry. In addition, the simple look of this pickup won’t crowd the looks of your guitar and the low profile certainly won’t interrupt your playing.
Thanks to the high impedance design, the Fishman Neo-D Single Coil requires no battery or additional power for it to run – great as you don’t need to worry about having spare batteries constantly!
Cost effective solution
At a fraction of the price of the Rare Earth series pickups, you’ll be surprised to discover that this is based on the same design. Neodymium magnets provide distinct string differentiation and output clear, shimmering tone. It’s notable to point out that the Fishman Neo-D Single coil can be susceptible to 50-60Hz hum, like all other single coil pickups. If you consider this to be an issue, a good choice is this pickups humbucking brother, the Fishman Neo-D Humbucker.
