    I can't say that I've heard of the Trucaders. There are two pickups made by Maton called the AP4 and AP5. They do exactly what you are after.

    My knowledge of acoustic guitar pickups are not that great but I know the AP4/AP5 do have 3 band equalizers.

    What make of guitar is the one you want to put the pickup into? If it isn't anything special, I wouldn't waste your time and money on it; especially considering that you already have an acoustic with a pick-up in it. To install a pickup with triband equalizers, aside from opening the guitar to install the pickup inside the sound hole, you are also going to have to cut out a chunk of the body of the guitar to fit the equalizer.

    Sorry, one other thing I forgot to add. The AP4 and AP5 pickups are great pickups. A few of my friends have Maton's with the AP5 and it truly is an excellent pickup.
