How do you change acoustic guitar to acoustic/electric?

I heard buying some tools and installing on the body of the guitar will make acoustic into acoustic / electric.

There are a couple options.

The easiest is to get a soundhole pickup like a Fishman NeoD or Dean Markley or Barcus Berry. These are very simple to install. They just clamp inside the soundhole of the guitar under the strings and have a cable attached (usually) that you just plug into your amplifier (you need an amplifier). A soundhole pickup can be removed and put in very easily so you can remove it when you're just playing at home and put it back in when you're gigging.

The other option is to have a pickup installed. Most of these are a thin piezo transducer strip that gets put under the white bone saddle on the bridge of your guitar. You have to remove all the strings and remove the saddle, then drill a small hole through the channel on the bridge through the top of your guitar for the wire to go through. Then you put the wire on the pickup down through the hole and lay the piezo element flat along the bottom or the channel where the saddle goes. You would have to shave down the saddle a bit to compensate for the added height of the piezo element or your action on your guitar will be higher. Then you put the saddle back in the channel over the piezo element and the strings will hold it back in. In addition to that you then have to attach the other end of the pickup wire to the preamp which is either a box that you screw into a square hole you cut in the side of your guitar, or can be right in the end pin jack. The preamp then gets connected to a special end pin jack that replaces your strap button on the end of your guitar.

If you want to do it yourself, I'd suggest you try out a soundhole pickup because you really need to know what you're doing to install an under saddle pickup, preamp, and end pin jack properly and since you're asking on here, I'll assume you don't know what you're doing. If you take your guitar to a shop they'll charge you about $50 to install a pickup.

I had an LR Baggs under saddle pickup installed on my Guild acoustic guitar and it cost $150 for the pickup and installation. Prior to that I had been using a Fishman NeoD soundhole pickup that I bought used for $30 and later sold on Ebay for $50 when I had the LR Baggs installed. Again, installing an under saddle pickup isn't a do-it-yourself job unless you're pretty handy.
