I have a $5k custom acoustic (rosewood/spruce mid size custom shape). It sounds absolutely beautiful. I've had it for around 6 years now and I'm still in love. When recording through an external mic I love the sound. It has a fishman prefix system and everywhere I play people say it sounds amazing, but I can't stand the piezo sound when I know how it sounds through a good mic. I've been doing some research and think I may try the fishman aura spectrum and send my guitar to fishman to have them create a custom image. My guitar is so unique it really doesn't match any of the guitars that have factory images created. Has anyone gone this route? How did it sound? Any other ideas/suggestions? Money really isn't that much of an object. I have a $5,000 guitar, I want it to sound the best that it can in a loud live environment.
