Customer Question
I have purchased a...

I have purchased a Fishman Presys+ system and I see the under saddle pickup sensor measures 3 3/8" length. A standard saddle bone is approx. 2 3/4" and standard string spacing is 2 1/8". Where is the extra length of the pickup sensor placed? I've installed numerous pickups previously ( the rigid rectangular type) that are just a bit longer than the string spacing.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your product?

It is Fishman Presys+ onboard preamp system

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

What do you mean? I have not installed the system yet

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

No it's only the length of the under saddle bone pickup the concerns me
