AMT Quick-Disconnect Cable Assembly (for Fishman pickup)

AMT is now manufacturing a proprietary quick-disconnect cable assembly for use with Fishman's Nashville bridge insert reso pickup.  When used in combination with AMT's new high performance spiderbridge this cable assembly facilitates quickly and easily swapping between the Fishman pickup inserts and conventional bridge inserts of your choice -- to achieve optimum tonality, resonance, volume and sustain when use of the pickup isn't required, while enabling simple reinstallation of the pickup inserts whenever they're required for use with Fishman's Aura imaging pedal for live sound reinforcement.  Swapping of bridge inserts can be performed in less than five minutes using a standard hex key wrench... without requiring removal of the strings, coverplate, spiderbridge or cone.
