State of the art in acoustic pups? - For a custom built acou

A friend of mine is having a custom acoustic flat-top being built by an ultra cutting edge high-end luthier here in St. Louis. *The tones of which this luthier's guitars are capable rival that of the most desired Martin, Taylor, etc. * He would like to incorporate the most cutting edge electronics into this guitar to take advantage of it's unique tonality. *He's not *really down on the quacky sound of a piezo's in general and can't stand the sound of, say an amplified Ovation. *He's trying to capture this guitars unamplified sound when amplified. *

Any recommendations in terms of pups / mics / transducers, etc. for this guitar??

State of the art in acoustic pups?

Check out Highlander... by far the best sounding acoustic pickup I've heard... also, there is a company called Sunrise (Leo Kottke uses their stuff), this is on a different level all together than the usual Fishman stuff that is hot right now. *I'll see if I can dig up a link or two and post it.

OK... here's Highlander ... * * *
and here's Sunrise *... * * * * * *
I'm not as familier with sunrise, but like I said before Highlander stuff kills. *Hope that helps. *
