I have used early versions of "pick-up-the-world" run through a Baggs Para Acoustic DI, and it was easy installation and usable, but not the most authentic acoustic sound I was hoping for. I alsoexperienced a need to replace them from wear-and-tear getting the instrument out of the case for gigs.
I then added two K&K hotspots, with a K&K blender that then runs through the Baggs Para Acoustic DI...much more involved installation, but seemed to balance the highs and lows a little better.
I have a Nick Blanton instrument with a piano pickup under the treble bridge, also run through the Baggs in another instrument.
All of these mitigate wind issues when playing outside and minimize feedback issues when playing in a highly amplified environment on stage with monitors, however, I still prefer the actual, acoustic sound, captured by several good microphones and blended when I am recording. No substitute for them in gaining authentic sound, in my opinion!
