my guitar is pictured below

could someone please tell me what pick up the guitar uses and how to find/fit one.


...also, would it be possible to fit a strap button on the bottom of my guitar without harming the strength or frame?

correct me if im wrong, but i dont think a pickup would work with nylon strings
id just mic it if i were you

^You could use a piezo pickup, which picks up pressure instead of magnetics.

TS, you can get undersaddle piezo transducers. Fishman and LR Baggs both make great products.
it's all just coming back

^That.

And that isn't a pickup in that picture TS. Its called a lute hole cover. You put it in the soundhole to help reduce feedback.

Prettymuch everything baby Joel and Natrone is right. as for the strap button...I'm not sure, I don't know too much about classical guitars to know if it would work or not.

Gogol Bordello? Nice nice, although I haven't listened to much of their stuff, it is interesting though.

Honestly I don't see the point in getting one of those though. It'll make your guitar way quieter. Don't put something on your guitar just for looks.
