Mr. Marley has had success, and at his suggetion, I went ahead and ordered my ROMP. I ordered it this past Tuesday and got it yesterday (Friday)! That was way fast! Bobmarley's install went easily. Mine took some effort. I don't know if anyone mentioned this before, but I think there are two versions of endpins for the Rover. When I got my ROMP microphone/pickup, the instructions spoke of a slotted endpin and using the special 'wrench' that comes with the ROMP to remove the old endpin. My endpin was a simple smaller plastic one with a single small Philips head woodscrew holding it in place. The instructions indicated the existing hole was the same size as the ROMP. Mine was the size of a small philips head woodscrew! So, I went over to my Dad's house (he has a really nice woodshop) and we found the appropriate drillbit and overdrilled a hole that fit the ROMP. It was really tight, we used a 1/2 inch drillbit. We had to use a small rasp to open it up just a little bit more. But, the short story is (too late it seems!) MY ROVER IS ELECTRIFIED! I hooked it up to my Roland Microcube and had a good time. It does need a feedback buster. I picked up some scrap leather to practice with. I hope to make a custom carved soundhole cover over the next few days. If I can figure out how to post pictures from Picasa Web albums, I'll try to post photos. I don't know how else to host pictures on the internet...maybe facebook?
