Install the 2 batteries, unscrew the Rover's end pin & replace with the mic/pup jack/end pin. VERY easy & sounds quite good, especially in the 'bass' department. GREAT playing little axe, don't you think? Sling a Pignose (or Roland MicroCube) over your shoulder or slip a Smokey in your pocket & add phone booth venues to your next tour dates!

I did but had trouble. The pickup arrived with the mic wire (attached to the endpiece) bent at an angle. When installing, the mic caught on the body and the mic wire broke off as I was installing (turning) the end piece. I had to re-solder the mic onto the pickup. OK after that. Make sure to straighten the mic wire before installing.
