I like K and K stuff, it's about the best there is for acoustic guitar imho. For many many years I hated USP's with their rubbery thuddy fake tone that was till a couple years ago when I found the Fishman Aura. Now, again IMHO, a Fishman USP with an Aura is the very best acoustic amplified I've ever come across.
I agree with you on not adding any wood. I'll stick to the Rare Earth sound hole of I want to amplify the guitar. That pickup is good enough for Will Kimbrough in his LG-3 and John Leventhal in his Collings so that is my best bet. Thanks for the response.
