But yes, please do spare me more typing - it's a colossal waste of time.
You don't. It isn't. I haven't. They weren't.

3 - WHO have said that a modeller is Hi-Fi ?? - If a device noticeably alters the sound, then it's NOT Hi-Fi. ( Isn't it obvious ?)
The issue here was about which type of pickup/wiring offers the highest fidelity AVAILABLE/possible. (It has already been discussed)


4 - WHEN I want only the tone of the guitar (wood/bridge/strings/etc), I don't use any effect because... (#3)


5 - Each guitarist has his own approach to gear. Some of them never play without a tube-amp. Some of them just prefer the practicality of a good modeller/multi-effect unit plugged into a clean amp. - There's NO right or wrong.

I love tube amps but I play my acoustic guitar through a very clean, studio quality chain that's all (very good) solid state electronics, into a fairly high-end center channel speaker from an expensive home theater system.

However, I don't consider the sound to be really hi-fi because the pickup is a magnetic sound hole pickup, albeit with a built-in miniature condenser mic, which does help the tone to be more natural. But still, the magnetic pickup tone is pretty obvious.

I'd really like to get one of the DPA 4099G miniature condenser mic systems for acoustic guitar but they're over $600. That would give a pretty clean, accurate acoustic tone. Unfortunately I don't think that would work for you, as the solid body of the Strat doesn't radiate enough sound.

OTOH, if I wanted to emphasize the magnetic pickup tones for more of an electric feel I'd use a proper tube amp.

John these are omni I think. And very room acoustics dependant. Try an AMT version. cheaper and just as good

Yuri, I'm disappointed in you, you should know better.

This particular model DPA is supercardioid. And comparing a DPA to an AMT? Are you kidding?

Hmmm, I need to review the collection. I am normally into shcoeps, gefell or if desperate km84. But do prefer the small AMT over the 4099. Go figure
