Daver Real Acoustic Guitar! (27) RE: Real Acoustic Guitar! 15 Dec 10

Unless you're playing without any sound system, the guitar will be going through a microphone, preamp and amplifier. An acoustic guitar pickup is just a microphone which has been, hopefully, selected and positioned to get the best possible sound out of the guitar soundbox. An external mic is almost certainly not ideally positioned, and may not be really ideal for an instrument (usually vocal microphones are used). It's rare for a performer to get to play without a sound system, but it's usually well worth the effort to hear them when they do.
