I have my epiphone elitist texan, and i absolutely love the feel and sound of it. And i want to gig with is SO bad, but i cant find a good way of amplifying it. Ive gotten one of those like 60$ dean markely in-hole pick-ups, and im just unsatisfied with it, it has low output and horrid buzz. So what can i do, how much would it cost to get a input and pickup system installed? or any high-end sound-hole direct out pickups i can get? any suggestions will help

If you're competent with a soldering iron and drill you could make a Piezo like I just did. 5 bucks and a hole in the side of my guitar. I'll give you any info you want on it , pics as well.

There is such a thing as a microphone. You can mic up your guitar. If you have to move around, there's an Electronics for Acoustics sticky. There's one called "Rare Earth". I think Fishman makes it.

I would not drill into that guitar. Seriously, just don't do it.

What you need to do is get an aftermarket pickup system, an acoustic amp, and an EQ pack. They look like wireless packs. You just seet all of the EQ where you want it, clip it on your strap, and you're ready to go.
