Hurrah for LR Baggs! My only complaint about your equipment is how it's the first sound item to get stolen when I leave stuff behind at a gig

So, I've got a Tacoma Baritone guitar, and it came equipped with an LR Baggs Miratone pickup that leaves a bit to be desired, so I just ordered and received an Onboard Imix system to replace it. I'm wondering though, is there any difference between the Element pickup and the Miratone? If there's not one, could I save a few steps and just plug the Miratone into the Imix preamp, instead of the Element?

Thanks for your response!
