There could possibly be some drawbacks. If you have a highly desired vintage model or even something like an Authentic, drilling out the strap peg hole and doing some other permanent modification inside the guitar could decrease the value to some. There are also various opinions on whether or not installation of certain types of pickups (especially under saddle) affects the acoustic quality/performance of the guitar.

If I was only recording the guitar at home, I'd use a mic. As it is I play out and did not want to alter my guitar or limit which dread I played with so I went with the Fishman Rare Earth Blend paired with the Platinum Stage Pream/DI and think it sounds great. I will admit having the wire come out the front isn't as convenient as it would be off the bottom.
