The L.R. Baggs Five.O system combines a custom version of the Element pickup, a soundhole mounted volume control and a miniature endpin preamp powered by a 3V battery. L.R. Baggs engineers radically miniaturized the design so that the complete system weighs less than a 9V battery and tucks away neatly inside any uke for a non-obtrusive installation. The pickup also features a pull guide to facilitate faster installations.

- Custom Element pickup

- Soundhole mounted volume control
- Super light weight
- Battery type: 3V
- Battery life: 300+ hours

L.R. Baggs Five.O Installation
Both the manufacturer’s and our recommendation is to have a qualified guitar tech or luthier perform the installation of the Five.O.
