    Am looking to pick up a Martin GC-MMV, wondering what currently made acoustic pu systems get the most love in terms of reproducing the sound of the guitar. I understand well the down sides of piezo pickups, am hoping to come across some new knowledge.
    What are you using - K&K, LR Baggs or... ?

    LR Baggs all the way. Ironically, I have the Baggs system in my PRS P22 solid body!! I have a Fender acoustic with a Fishman system that is pretty awesome in its own right, but every guitar I have played with the LR Baggs system just sounds killer.

    Hi!
    I've got the K&K Pure Mini in my Martin HD-35. Sounds great, and really captures the sound of the guitar. The installation is reasonably easy, and very little modification to the guitar is needed. The output is bit low, but there is a matching pre-amp available!
