Another vote for the K&K Pure Mini - passive (so no battery in the guitar) but still a hot signal and very, very natural 'acoustic' sounding. As it's a bridgeplate transducer, you don't get the 'quack' of a UST, but it is slightly more feedback-prone, so you need to be careful in high-volume situations.

And don't try using a Baggs Para-DI with it - the impedance mis-match will give a less-than fantastic result. I have an Orchid Mutable DI which I use with mine, and it's all I need - I EQ on the amp (Roland AC-60) or on the PA desk if I DI straight in.
