For the acoustic tunes, Sermon grabs either his Gibson J-35 or Gibson LG-2 American Eagle (shown here), both flattops have LR Baggs M1 pickups. The LG-2 is kept in standard tuning and used on “Trouble,” “Thief,” and “Release,” while the J-35 is tuned a half-step down and is featured on the bridge to “I Bet My Life.” -Premier Guitar; Rig Rundown with Imagine Dragonsmore
Unfortunately you cannot hear the LR Baggs M1 Pickup perform in this video, but you can see it very well from every angle. I'm not 100% sure if Dallas uses the active one, but I would go as far as saying that he uses LR Baggs on every single of his acoustics. You can see it in his old Martin 00-17M in this video and also in his new custom 12-fret Martin dreadnought with the orangy honey burst finish.more
