Has anyone tried the SD Systems LCM100/ PU4 combination? Looks good on paper. Also, the instrument I use is of unknown origin, and not having played too many others there are a couple of things that concern me: the bridge has been cut down to sit considerably lower than any other I've seen, this presumably goes hand in hand with the neck being at less of an angle to the body than any I've seen also.
I've also never seen an instrument half filled with foam like mine is, this is obviously to reduce feedback in a band situation (where I do occasionaly find myself.) The thing is it feels and sounds wonderful (especially considering what I paid for it), what do I stand to gain by correcting these abnormalities bearing in mind I play on the pub, club and festival circuit in any number of jazz, folk and blues outfits? Puzzled of Wight.
