    I'm wondering if i got an archtop guitar if i could plug it into an acoustic processor/DI and have it sound good and not have it feedback, and something that can handle a lot of bass.

    Any suggestions? Would this even sound good? I want to try and avoid bringing an amp out.

    Thanks!

    Put a piezo bridge in and run that through acoustic processing... way cool. If you're looking for an acoustic sound. Some come with them.

    would it feedback less than a regular acoustic guitar?

    depends on the guitar, in my limited experience, yes. But if you goose the bass on any acoustic guitar, you're going to get booming feedback.

    You want a great live acoustic guitar that will absolutely not feed back? Anderson Crowdster. I've tried, I can't make it feed back.

    i think your question should be, which processor/pre? i would recommend a sansamp paradriver (has a great mid control) for an acoustic archtop tone, with minimal feedback.
