This no fuss dock installs to the tailpiece without fasteners. Simply loosen the strings, mount, tighten. Youre in control. JackPot volume control provides flexibility for those who want to bypass resistance altogether. A la This Is Spinal Tap, this control lets you go all the way up to eleven. The Docking Station solves jack mounting problems, too. The cable is dressed away neatly from the 1/4 inch input/output without additional hardware. The tension of the strings holds The Docking Station to the tailpiece, like the loop from the industry standard Realist Copperhead pick-ups. Works with all pick ups, no batteries required, a passive system.
