Message Reads:

when you tried magnetic pickups, did you use electric gee-tar strings? one of the reasons they go zombie-like is that the bronze winding in most acoustic guitar strings isn't ferromagnetic. If you stick nickel- or steel-wound 'lectric strings on, you can get some very nice balanced sounds with minimal headache (depending on the sound you're after and the pickup). The most transparent dobro pickup I ever heard was a humbucker.
