The soul of your guitar is in the body - from the tone woods that it's made of, to the fine details
in the way it was put together. Standard magnetic pickups hear only dry strings, resulting in an
"electric" sound that omits the true acoustic voice of your guitar. In contrast, the M80 hears
the entire frequency range of the tone woods, thereby contributing warmth and complexity
to your amplified sound.
The secret of the M80 is a patented, free-floating humbucking coil that acts as a 3D body sensor.
As the soundboard resonates in all 3 dimensions, a proprietary suspension allows each axis of
the humbucking coil to respond with the guitar's movement. A resonant body signal is produced
and blended with the strings to faithfully capture your guitar like no other magnetic pickup
The M80 also gives you the choice of active or passive settings with the flick of the switch.
The active setting engages a preamp with built-in EQ and audiophile circuitry for that
high-fidelity sound Baggs is known for. Switch to the passive setting and bypass the
preamp for a battery free performance. Other features of the M80 include a battery check,
volume control and adjustable pole pieces for perfect balance between the strings.
