Default Pickup for K55 koa 12 string?

I just purchased a Taylor K55 all koa body custom guitar. I currently have a 855 with a Fishman pickup. The K55 has no pickup installed.

I play in a contemporary Hawaiian music band. There's 4 of us in the group. The makeup is two acoustic guitars, electric bass, and a drum track, and 3 part vocals. It can get pretty loud in our monitor mix at times, and we play some large venues. Shows can range from 100 - 2000 headcount.

Our regular gig PA setup is a Mackie 1604 with Community speakers and monitors. Sometimes I gig thru my Trace Elliott acoustic amp, and sometimes I just go straight to the board.

With all this in mind, can anyone recommend a good pickup for me to have installed on the K55? I do NOT want to cut out part of the side for any electronics, so all hardware was to exist within the guitar itself.

mahalo!

Default Trance Audio?

I'm still undecided between the Fishman Matrix, and the LRBaggs Ibeam.

Someone I know was raving about the Trance Audio pickup, has anyone tried one of those out? Any comments on it?
