A holy grail quest, of sorts. All pickups will alter the acoustic tone to some degree and some will be imperceptible and it won't matter and others will be noticeable. Something hard like the Matrix is less likely to noticeably alter the tone of your guitar but it's not guaranteed. This isn't always a negative either, as some people prefer the tone of their guitar after installing a Baggs Element or a Matrix.

Find the pickup that most checks your boxes, install it, and let your ears tell you if you care or not.
