Hey guys, I've been playing guitar and singing for about 6-7 months now. I'm starting to write my own songs, and I've been putting up covers on youtube as of late, and I realized I needed much better equipment. My guitar is fine, I love it. But it'd help a bunch if I could record it directly with a cord, like an acoustic-electric. I just got a new USB mic that takes instrument cables, so I should probably do this soon.

Any of you have any experience with this? If you do, what pickup/preamp/acoustic amp would you recommend, how do I install them, and do acoustic electrics work fine on the clean channel of an electric guitar amp?

Thanks in advance.
