Finally! Listened to 468.6 clips of different acoustic pickups over the last 3 months. Made a decision, Baggs M1A and GC had it in stock. Good enough.

Had my guitar guy lower the nut, which needed it badly, and lower the upper side of the saddle. Also polished the frets and oiled the board.

The Baggs M1A was installed and replaced a borrowed Fishman Neo-D. Night and day difference. I going to gig it tomorrow. The pickup has a much crisper top, much more acoustic sounding low end. We shall see tomorrow through the PA.

After wading through endless questions and reviews, what a relief.

Did our gig, and the pickup sounded great. Wasn't sure if it was the PA as I plugged straight in, the mids were a little lacking. Very crisp. So I'll probably get a DI box. Guys did notice the guitar sounded much more natural than the other 2 Ovations.

For small bar type gigging I can't imagine needing much more. Well, then again...
