The CTRL-X is optional and the X-Bridge can be installed in the guitar without it. For best results without using the CTRL-X, we highly recommend connecting the X-Bridge signal to a buffering preamp circuit with a high impedance input. The X-Bridge is supplied with a TRS output jack allowing the magnetic and piezo signals to be accessed on separate contacts. Using an insert cable, you can send each signal to its own signal path.

LR Baggs offers these three external preamps that will serve the X-Bridge signal:
