I would highly recommend using a condenser microphone over a piezo pickup.

hey parkerfly.......I got a $100 gift certificate for xmas at Sam Ash Music so I go in looking for a pick-up. I found a DiMarzio with a little slider volume control right on the pick-up. It sounds awesome with my Martin. The only pain is the G B E strings are a little louder than the E A D strings because they're unwound. You can make adjustments to correct this or I just turn down the treble a little on my amp. But, for $80 it's a steal!
Cheers,

The SM 57 isn't used because it sounds goo, it's used because it won't break. Dynamic microphones ideally aren't used for acoustic guitars. They are excellent for live sound because of their durability, but are best used for amplifiers, drums and sometimes vocals. Dynamic mics also require you to be quite close to them. In a live performance this can be very troublesome.
