OK, I'm ready to be spamed/flamed/ridiculed.

I have had great results using C1000s for stereo accoustic guitar. One between the sound hole and bridge at a 45 degree anlgle pointing up and towards the hole. The other on the neck around the 7th fret (relative if a capo is used) also at a 45 degree angle towards the hole. Check for phase, check for phase check for phase.

Pan hard L & R.

Sometimes I use a AT 4050 on the body. Depends on the guitar and player. Sometimes a TLM 103.

I have never heard a pickup that I wanted to use on accoustic, except for an effect track (chorus). Ovations sound great when they are in their case and not being played. grggt

That's me, your smileage may vary.
