Default Barbera Transducer in archtop bridge saddle

Anyone have one? Thoughts? They definitely make them, Benedetto amoung others has used them in factory installs (on nylon string archtops I think), but they don't show an example on their web page. I find I play electric instruments very differently than I play acoustic instruments, so I had this idea of amplifying one of my archtops to see what happened, also thinking of the more common floating/non-invasive magnetic pickup options, but this was mentioned as an alternative and looking for experience...
