@xsarehardcorex, yes - using a mic is generally accepted as the best method for getting a true acoustic sound. But soundhole pickups do have their advantages in being relatively low-hassle and mobile.


If money is not an issue, go for the LR Baggs M1A, without question.



Coldplay uses it, as does Noel Gallagher. It's really good quality.


Incidentally, I just ordered a Fishman D01, http://accessories.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fishman-ProNeoD01-Magnetic-Soundhole-Pickup?sku=303160

because it was on sale last weekend. I haven't received it yet but I'll be sure to report my findings with it. Hope it's good! :)
