    Pickup ring on the Valentine

    Hey folks,
    Iím new here. Love this guitar and I want to incorporate using my fishman triple play with it. There isnít quite enough space between the bridge pickup ring and the bridge. Does anyone know how vital the ring on this guitar is? Could I possibly sand down or eliminate the back side without adverse effects?
    Thanks for any info in advance

    Didn't even know what the TriplePlay was... but very cool! Came across this in my search and may be a solution, if there's enough room to mount it on the bridge instead of in front of it.:

    I'd give CS a call or email and see what they say. They'd know best I would think.

    So thanks to AJ Braman (found his name and email in another thread regarding customer support), no modification was necessary He clued me in to spacers between the ring and pickup and advised trying removing them. This allowed me to keep the pickup at the same height, but lower the pickup ring flush into the body. Now I have just enough space for the fishman pickup mount.
