I have always found hybrid acoustic/electric guitar interesting, ever since watching the Nirvana Unplugged thing on MTV. I really liked Kurt Cobain's tone from that event. I had always assumed that the the guitar he was playing was some kind of homebrew, but that wasn't the case. Kurt's guitar is a Martin 15e, made in the 1950's, and pretty rare. Anyway that's what I was after, not too sure that the Artec Memphisys 66 OSJ delivered, but that's not to say that I didn't like what it did deliver. A distorted sound from an acoustic is definitely a novel, original sound, which I liked very much. The Artec Memphisys 66 OSJ does also provide a decent clear tone, OK not exactly an acoustic sound, but then if that's what you are after, then you'd be better with 1 of the 100's of piezo pickups. The only gripe I have, is the volume and tone controls are a bit hard to access. This is pretty minor thou, I mean at least they are there. Fitting the Artec Memphisys 66 OSJ, was a breeze, it has 2 screws and captive nuts, that create a clamp, which is padded, which attaches the pickup to the sound hole of your acoustic. I fitted the Artec Memphisys 66 OSJ, with the strings off, and it took me just a couple of minutes. All in all, a great little addition to your tone arsenal, I have used it to add dimension to home recordings. It's a nice looking thing too, and appears to be very well built, and cheap too. I really don't know how they can do this type of quality at this price. I can definitely recommend the Artec Memphisys 66 OSJ, do yourself a favour and get one.
