built-in pickups, instrument value
Hi all -
What's the consensus - Does having a pickup installed that replaces the rear strap button with a plug receptacle/button reduce the value of an instrument?
It does require drilling out the tailpiece center hole and drilling through the instrument side.
Is there an acoustic downside as well?
I'm having mixed emotions on this. I want the pickup but don't want to reduce the desirability of the instrument to someone else should I decide to part with it.
