I've heard great things about the Pure Western, but I'm wondering how sensitive it is to the guitar's body?  I currently have the Baggs M1 (passive) and find it too sensitive to anything that rubs/ brushes againist the guitar body (like my shirt, etc).  Would the K&K also cause this problem?

Yes, the K&K will produce more body sounds.

The K&K will more than likely pick up the body sounds more than the M1.

Seandmc, the K&K does pick up body noise, but no more then you hear when playing unplugged.  That's one of the things that people mean when they say K&K's, especially the minis, sound "natrual."

I'm a novice to acoustic amplification.  If I wanted a pick up that sounded great with limited noise from rubbing, etc what would you recommend?
