Lavalier or condenser on mic stand?

I need to amplify my acoustic (Epi masterbuilt) with an external mic. I don’t like undersaddle and I don’t want to make holes on the axe.

I need amplification for my church service.

I already have the Behringer condenser C2 but need phantom power. So I would keep for my services an amp (doesn’t have phantom +48) , guitar, mic stand, mic phantom adapter

I want to keep it simple so I considered also a simple lavalier omni AT 3350.

Or does it worth changing my guitar amp?

Thanks for suggestions about your experience.

The omni pattern is going to be an issue. Better with a cardioid, but most lavs are omni.

I've gotten some pretty good results very securely taping an omni lav inside the soundhole. You really have to watch the feedback and do some EQ carving, but I've made it work with Sony ECM lavs.

How abut a soundhole pup? I put one in for a guy the other day, Baggs M80 I think, and it sounded great.

thank you sir. I've ended my search with a AT PRO70. It's sounds perfect! Real acoustic sound!
