With an off-the peg system factory fitted?

Easily a Takamine. I've owned several, and still have my EAN20C satin cedar/mahogany Jumbo which I bought 16yrs or so ago. Really, really wonderful live guitars. Just fine acoustically too...not quite as dramatically gorgeous as something like my SJ200 or D18GE, but very good. I used mine for an album I made back in 2014 ('Traditional Dark') and it was a joy to record with.

I have a CT4BII pre in mine, I previously had the Cool Tubes unit that it shipped with, but found it a bit noisy. Not sure if it was just my unit, but I put a CT4BII in there and have been happy ever since.

That weird bowl shape just feels too weird to me

Apologies for quoting myself, but here's what he said in reply:

"A lot of the sound is this well-used middle-aged Gibson J-30 I've had
since the very early 90s. The pickup is a K&K pure country -- three hot
spots superglued on the underside of the bridge plate, running passive.
For a single source pickup it does the best job I've heard of capturing
a good acoustic tone with some wood in it -- and far warmer that any of
the piezos I've tried. There are elaborate blended systems, but the good
ones cost an arm and a leg and are still pretty prone to feedback. For a
one-song spot I just plug into the house line. Otherwise I put a little
K&K DI box inline that gives me a little front end EQ control and volume
adjustment, and whenever possible I add an instrument mic as well. But
for the majority of solo performances these days I use just an
instrument mic and don't plug in. And as we discussed briefly while you
were striking the stage, for our trio performances we cluster around a
since condenser mic for all the vocals and instruments except for Andy's
bass."

A lot of extremely nice guitars have been listed, so what I'm about to mention is a bit of a dark horse but since we are specifically talking about plugged-in guitars the Yamaha Silent Guitar (SLG200S or SLG200N) deserves to be added. Yeah, it's more of a hybrid but still meant to compete in the acoustic class.

These are often viewed as a practice guitar for being so quiet when not plugged in (sounds super wearing headphones) or a travel guitar because they can fit in a plane overhead.

However, their real glory is amped up performing. I have the steel-string model and what a fantastic guitar. Sounds absolutely beautiful.
