The Seymour Duncan SA-6 Mag Mic Active Acoustic Guitar Pickup is a combination of a magnetic pickup and an omnidirectional condenser mic.

This allows the guitar's tone to have a natural sounding resonance while providing clarity via the magnetic pickups.

You can blend between the two to achieve natural, percussive or feedback-reducing tonalities.
