Hello all!

I have a 2000 W598 with the thin line pickup system. To me it does not sounds as good as the older ones so I want to install the K&K pickups. 

Which one is the best for the Fan bracing?  I have an external preamp/equilizer so a passive system is prefered.

Thanks!

Ed

I'd like to see the fan bracing to see where the bridge lies on it but I'd think their pure classic might be a go if there is room for 4 transducers or the pure steel if there is only room for 3. On my Pacemeker with it's bracing I used the Big Twin system with great results, it is posted on the bottom feeding guild area I think. For a conventional 12 string bridge plate bracing they do make a 12 string set up but it is largely for x bracing. All of these pickups are fairly interchangeable with the big difference being size. Mount with Super Glue gel for the most volume and tone.

the pickup sits on the bridge plate so I don't think there would be an issue
the western is a great choice
I love KnK stuff

Ditto on the Pure Western. I have this on several guitars (non Ovation).
