The I-Beam tends to be somewhat feedback prone, and is very picky about installation.  The Baggs undersaddle pickups aren't bad, but there is also stuff by K&K, B-band, & PUTW that sounds nice.  I like the K&K myself.

K & K are the best transducers at the lowest prices. Check their eBay store. You can also get a cheap stomp-box preamp from Music 1 2 3 to boost it and customize your sound.

Easy if your guitar has the endpin that removes withan allen wrench, revealing a hole the perfect size for the jack-type pin. Then it's a matter of gluing the 2 or 3 piezo pads on the underside and soldering the wires to the jack. That is if you plan to use an outboard preamp. I am trying that with one of my guitars. Rather than duplicate a battery and preamp in every guitar, it's a matter of instlling the pickups and preamping it in a floor stompbox arrangement. Plus, you can tailor your sound without much fuss.

Lately I have been experimenting with the Big Twin, with one pad on the bass side of bridge and the other out 4 inches below the treble side. More wood sound and resonance there. TI have made my mind up to drill into my LC-09...finally.

Oh, you should check eBay for K & K parts at reduced prices.

If you want a quick solution, just get a Baggs M1.
It's pretty good. A soundhole mag mount pickup.

Les, glad to hear it worked out for you. Hope your ebay rating didn't take a hit.

Let us all know what you think once you get it.
