I have an unused iDea pre-amp for sale. Record your licks and play them back. Play along with included jam tracks or lessons.

Just the pre-amp itself (and a USB cable) are included. I do not have the mounting "can", the 1/8" AUX IN Jack, or headphones.

The iDEA pre-amp is compatible with OP style of pre-amp "cans" - OP10, OP-20, OP-30, OP-40, OP-50, OP-Pro, OP-Studio and OP-VIP5. So if your guitar is outfitted with one of these existing pre-amps you can simply pop it out and pop the iDEA in its place.

More info about the preamp can be found at StandingOvation's site: http://www.ideafordummies.com

Asking $180 shipped/insured CONUS.

Thanks!

David

Some wisdom from OMA:

--
You can only drop the iDea module into an OP-Pro can.
Some say that it will work in an OP-50 can, but I have no evidence either way.
But you can NOT drop the iDea into the OP-10, 11, 20, 30 or 40.
When they say that it is interchangeable with all of the kidney cans, they mean that you can remove the can and it will fit in the hole.

--

Pretty sure it will work in an Op Pro Studio or VIP5 can as well.

Thank you, sir!

Can same shape, yes, but iDea requires an 8-pin connector. OP-40 was seven pin, not sure about OP-50.

Just let it be said that you need an OP-Pro can to work this...
So if you have an LX or a newer T, or even an AX or TX, you can use this.
After all... This is the OFC so we are supposed to understand the difference.

This is moving into luthier territory but...if I read DVD right ... If you had the "can" as well as this part, can you swap the whole assembly with an OP-30? Like could I swap a whole set up from an iDea guitar with my Elite T that has a OP-30 and slimline pickup? Or would you have to have a OP-30 and wide pickup like my 1718 to swap. OR can you only swap between Pros and not swap full can assemblies period....whew Cue up Old Man Expert...

You can "Drop" the iDea module into an OP-Pro series can.

You cannot "Drop" the iDea module into an OP-30 can. (nor 10, 11, 20, or 40 can).
But if you HAVE the whole iDea kit, including the Can...
The iDea Can will fit into the "bean-shaped" hole in the bowl of the guitar.
And the connectors for the jack and the pickup will connect with the appropriate jacks in the iDea can.

BTW-- I have an iDea unit.
Once the novelty wears-off, I no longer use it.
YMMV

As to the Saddles...
You can plug a Thinline saddle into an OP-Pro can.
You can plug a wide Original pickup into an OP-30.
I have an OP-30 preamp in my Painted Elite-T with a wide saddle.
The plug-in connection is the same on both saddles and both cans.

Confused yet?

Now I'm lost! If you've got a can meant for an OP-Pro, OP-Pro Studio, or VIP, or an iDea (obviously) it will work. I know for sure it's interchangeable for an OP-Pro Studio as I've done that many times here. I also know it works fine with an OPP original patented pickup. I actually didn't know the thinline worked with it. But I will defer to OMA, he's had way more permutations of all this stuff than I have. Clear as mud, right? ;-)

DaViD... The original CC54i guitar has a slimline saddle pickup.


More confusing?
The iDea module WILL work in an OP-Pro can...
But an OP-Pro module will NOT work in an iDea can.

No bites on this in forever. How about $100 shipped CONUS. I'll send outside of the US if you cover shipping.

Still lingering. $60 shipped in the US? If nothing else, it makes a good paperweight with blinking lights.
