I attended an Earl Scruggs concert last week (great concert BTW).   Randy Scruggs and Jon Randall were playing acoustic guitars.  The were both using pickups,  but they also had mics.  During solos they'd get closer to the mics,  for extra volume,  and better tone.   While playiing rythym they'd move away from the mic.  It sounded great,  and the "pickup" tone wasn't a problem with the guitar just sitting in the mix.  Some of Earl's family members are customers of mine.  I'm going to find out through them what kind of mics they use.   
please share when you find out.

10-1614 more than a number, it's body and soul.
