I have a few electric guitars but with my classical, I prefer the traditional guitar, not an electric acoustic. I'd like to get a mic for my Navarro guitar but what amp would one use for this?

You are right, there is a huge differnce between internal piezo mic and external good quality mic with good amp.
I use MXL V87 mic with PRESONUS TubePre tube amp. The amp is very low noise (I tried a bunch of other amps, this is the lowest noise I could find among medium-priced amps).

Thank you for the reply. I've been looking for ages for something better than attaching a mic to the guitar or installing a pickup - which I hate too. Much appreciated.
