I have a Martin with a fish man F1 pick up. I play it with a twin reverb and I use a modded Ibanez tube screamer. My band is kind of grungy. I love the clean rhythms I get out of my acoustic through the twin. I don't "shred" at all but I do want a good distortion for my rhythm driven choruses. I'm looking into another pick up that would help because when I play my songs with an electric it sounds really empty but I love the distortion I get out of my tele. Any suggestions? Thank you

My answer for these things is

1. Get a chorus pedal

2. Acoustic simulator pedal.
