Dobro is a manufacturer known for making high-quality resonator guitars. While most resonator guitar players use a microphone set up to amplify the sound of their guitars, there may be times when having electric pickups installed in your Dobro will better meet your amplification demands. Due to the unique structure of Dobro guitars, using a magnetic neck pickup usually provides the best reproduction of the resonator sound.

Things you need
- Magnetic neck sensor
Loosen all the strings on the guitar. You will be placing the neck sensor under the strings near the nut and will need the strings loose in order to correctly install it.
Position magnetic neck sensor under the strings and against the guitar's nut. The nut is the metal piece that the strings sit on at the upper end of the neck.
Tighten the strap to hold the neck sensor in place. Once the sensor is in place, tighten using the Velcro strap that most neck sensors use.
Re-tune the strings.
Plug in the cable coming from the pickup to either a preamp or your amplifier. Begin playing your Dobro and adjust the sound and volume to match your preference.
