DiMarzio DP136 Super Natural Plus Soundhole Passive Acoustic Guitar Pickup
The DiMarzio DP136 Super Natural Plus Soundhole pickup has several similarities with the DP138 including the mounting and 10-foot cable.
Compared to the DP138, the pickup is more focused, with a tighter bass and a greater high-mid and treble presence.

Reviews mention the convenience and sound quality to be excellent. A reviewer noted that the wooden aesthetic complemented his guitar well.
Some users noticed some noise with the volume slider. Another problem users had with the volume slider was how easy it is to hit with hard strumming.
For those who want to brighten up a dark sounding acoustic or want added shimmer to cut through the band mix, the DP136 is a good choice. Because of the hassle-free installation, vintage instruments won't need any modifications.
