Never had an acoustic that was equipped with a pickup (other than a really nice Ovation) and was wondering if the controls sticking out the top of the upper bout is a necessary evil that you just put up with, or maybe its not an issue to the acoustic qualities of the guitar? Saw a Larrivee OMV-09E that seemed to be a great looking guitar, nice cut-away, great EIR/Sitka combination and moderately priced. Not too fancied up with all the inlays and such (some guitars to me end up looking like a Liberace reject and kinda whorish) but this one was quality made with good solidwoods but not overly ornate. On board electronics were B-Band 6.2 of which I know nothing about. Any views, discussion, opinions?
