I recently bought a new Taylor 618e acoustic and was considering getting a Fishman Rare Earth pickup instead of using my beloved M1 Active purely because I didn't think the off white (almost yellow) colour would suit the look of my new guitar. I stumbled upon this product by accident and I have to say, it looks better in person than the photos on the website. I would advise Thomann to have this as a "suggested accessory" or something on the LR Baggs M1 Active page as I would have bought it with the pickup without a doubt. I think the stock cover works well with a dark bodied acoustic but not so well with a lighter top. The ebony cover will blend in nicely with my feedback buster, making the pickup almost invisible :) (FYI I use the Ovation OVFBR2 Feedback Buster which I slice up with a Stanley knife to accommodate my pickup)
I bought this because my Yamaha acoustic has an ebony fretboard and tailpiece, so I thought it would look nicer than the stock yellow plastic cover. Also, it is more discreet against the dark sound hole. It is nicely made, snaps on snugly. No problem, looks terrific.
