    My wife has the Baggs Lyric Mic in her Martin D-12 28. She seems to like it. Me - I just bought another Dearmond 210 from a friend. I did not need another one but I could not resist it as it came in its original box with a receipt and sales literature.

    I have considered putting one in my D12-28 also.

    I should correct my post-I had the Lyric in the Tweedy and my classical, not the Anthem! My mistake. I didn't use the Venue DI but I've heard great things.

    I have noticed the Lyric does have a compressed aspect to it. If I strum really hard volume doesn't increase. They describe this in the specs as a special circuit that I suppose helps reduce feedback.

    Thanks. I always like the extra info about the models and comparisons/ contrasts to other guitars.

    Yes me too, My growing collection keeps me preoccupied with comparisons and contrasts. No 2 of my 9 acoustics sound alike.

    I had the anthem in a Martin Tweedy I had last year. Sounded fine but not particularly dynamic, which was odd as the guitar was amazingly dynamic.

    The relatively flat dynamic response made me curious to see how it would sound in a classical guitar, so installed a Lyric Classical in my old Perez nylon string and it was a total feedback disaster...a reinstall required I think!

    I haven't used mine in a live gig yet. I just have used it in my studio. Did you have the LR Baggs Venue Preamp? It has circuits to help with feedback.

    Wow, that is real nice. I just got an Advanced Jumbo and it is becoming my favorite guitar. I have been wanting a maple guitar and would love to try one of those. I imagine they are rare. Mine is comparable to my HD-28 with Standard Bracing, but isn't as bassy and has more mid and high projection which is what I really love. Contrary to what many think, the Wide X bracing of the AJ is nothing like Martin's Forward Shifted X Bracing. Forward Shifted makes the top looser for more bass and low volume responsiveness but with less punch and headroom. My D-42 is like this. The Wide X Bracing of the AJ is very stiff, like Martin's Standard Bracing, which gives a tighter sound with more headroom when strummed hard. If you strum a Froward Shifted top hard it gets mushy and distorted. Congrats on the new Axe.
