Just installed a Baggs dual source sysytem in a customer's D-28, and
he'd somehow lost the velcro patches that attach the preamp, the
battery holder, and the microphone to the inside back of the guitar.
I found a box of "industrial strength" velcro at Office Depot and was
about to install the mike when the guitar's owners asked me where I
thought it should be located.
I explained that moving it from the bass to the treble side of the box
would change the guitar's tonality, and he then asked me if I could
install it in such a way that he could easily play with the tonality
himself, at home.
I ended up cutting a 1" wide by 10" long strip of velcro and putting
it just down past -and parrallel to- the transverse back-brace that
sits almost under the bridge.
Now you can simply reach into the soundhole, gently pull the mike
loose, and reposition it anywhere from the far bass edge to the far
treble edge. Takes about 10 seconds, and gives you the chance to
taylor the guitar's bass/treble balance to your personal preferences.
This may not be an original idea, but I've never seen it written up
