I always thought acoustic guitars sound bad live and there's little to do about it, until I discovered LR Baggs. I use this mic/piezo combo system on 3 acoustic guitars (a Cort dreadnought, a Norman 12 string, and a small craft-made old guitar), and I looooooove the sound and I've never encountered any problem.
If you're looking for something that makes your guitar amplified sound close to its actual sound, then the Anthem is what you want.

note: I used to play with Fishman and Shadow piezo pickups before...now they belong to the bin. If only I had tried LR Baggs before, I would have saved lots of money and been more relaxed onstage.

Ordered my third as they are really good
Trek 18.11.2021
Just ordered my third anthem today , as getting another handmade guitar built by my local luthier to complement the other two I have previously purchased , customer service from Lr Baggs is superb and their staff very helpful , my only warning .. make sure it is installed correctly with the under bridge pick up wire the correct way up (black mark upwards ) and make sure the saddle is not to tight in the bridge …or the sound will suffer , the saddle has to be perfectly level across its bottom edge or some strings will sound louder than others

Amazing pickup for western style acoustic guitars
Poremgabor 12.04.2019
The best pickup system for steel acoustic guitars, I've tried. Very natural sounding. This unit has a little bit lower gain compared to the Fishmann active systems. But its sound quality is more natural and that's really not an issue with a quality acoustic amp (AER, Schertler) Using it with a mixer, or with multiFX sounds also good, but something is missing. Yeah, there are some other magic within those amps. I found that magic in the L.R. Baggs Session pedal, which is a multi-band compressor unit especially for acoustic guitar. With that pedal the L.R. Baggs Anthem sounds amazing. Really studio quality sound without microphones at stage.
I can't be happier!

You get what you pay for......
Fourwinds 22.04.2019
These are great pick ups, a little bit more expensive than a lot of pickups out there, but having messed around for years trying different ones, money well spent. Easy to fit, easy to use, I put this pickup on one of my Blueridge acoustics, and it is stupendous. Sensible easy to use volume and tone controls, rich even sound quality and wonderful 'true' tones, this is a great pickup. I have also the same pick up on one of my 12 strings and it just sounds amazing. Highly recommended, especially if you have a half decent guitar, this pickup will enhance whatever style or guitar that you play and make you sound better 5***** !!!!
