I've been playing guitar for a while, but I don't have much experience with electronics or amplification. I have an acoustic electric guitar that I believe has an under saddle piezo pickup. I'm looking to get the kind of sound out of the output, so that I can create beats similar to the way that one of my favorite guitarists, Ed Sheeran, does.
I've done a little of research lately, but everything I seem to find is add ons or preamps that contain a microphone. Ed's guitar doesn't seem to have a preamp at all (visibly) and he gets a huge bass sound without much effort or feedback leading me to believe it isn't a mic. Even when I pound my guitar only a slight sound comes out. I'm in the market for a new guitar anyways so any help from anyone knowledgeable on this subject would be greatly appreciated!
