My brother gave me this thing, he said it was a pup he had from the time when he played guitar and that it was for acoustic guitars, so here is the thing.





(sorry for the blurry pics)

It obviously is a pup, it has a pole with copperwire around it, covered in some kind of plastic circle, its wax potted, then it's connected to a pot that reads B100K that regulates volume and from there to the, 1/8" output jack.

I connected the thing to my amp, and unless the pole was directly on top of the low E string a couple of mms away of it, no sound would come out, guess that is common since thats how electric guitars pups work, although this seems to be the whole pup, how the hell it was supposed to pick up vibrations from all the 6 strings still puzzles me.

Is there anything I could save from this little pup, any way to fix it, or should i just toss it in the garbage?

That looks to me like it is a piezzo style acoustic pickup, try pressing it down just below the guitar bridge and playing a note.

As stated above, it looks like a piezo pickup

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.
