Excellent Value, Look, and Sound,
This review is from: Seymour Duncan 1150030 Woody Series SC SA-3SC - Single Coil Acoustic Guitar Pickup (Electronics)
I've owned a Seymour Duncan Woody for several months now, and have had a chance to try it out with various amps, with the pickup tipped for a stronger low end or high end, and so on. This is an excellent value and is basically as feedback free as you're likely to get from an acoustic guitar pickup. The one thing I've found is that I get a significantly more natural acoustic guitar sound playing the Woody through my Ampeg bass amp than through my Peavey guitar amp. The high ends are too grating through an electric guitar amp and there's a tendency for distortion to creep in, even with the clean setting. Through the bass amp, though, the tone is absolutely clean and clear. The pickup is easy enough to install and remove and it's easy to get it to sit low enough that it doesn't interfere with finger picking any more than any other sound hole pickup would. The other great feature of this pickup is the look; the natural wood finish actually enhances the look of the guitar. If you are looking for an acoustic guitar pickup, this is the one to buy!

I've always played acoustic guitar through small keyboard amps for the same reason, they have more bass than guitar amps.
