I just use EQ, but the Fender twin Pre (no cab etc.) is pretty good too.

I found a very good acoustic guitar patch in the custom tone area -- can't remember the specific patch name, but it really livened up the Martin Dreadnaught. Somebody put a lot of effort into this with multple levels of EQ, reverb, and a touch of chorus. I'm not at my pc with the L6 software on it -- maybe someone here will remember it. Anyway, using tne patch as a base, I modified it for the other acoustics. It uses no amp, and sounds really nice into my stage rig and also straight into my HD recorder (listening through headphones). I set up my patches with the HD500 to sound good direct to our soundman's board and through my guitar rig. Sometimes I have to compromise to sound good in both, since you can't have different settings for the 1/4" line out versus the XLR.
I'll reply with the name of the patch when I get back to my other pc.

I found the patch and will try to attach it to this post (I've never done that before, and we'll see it it works). It's called "Variax Acoustic Guitar.h5e". Might be a bit heavy in room reverb, but you can tweek it to your liking. One thing I've noticed in a lot of patches from the Custom Tone area, is they rarely have the volume pedal assigned -- so that is usually the first thing I do is add one to the output end of the chain, because they usually will blow me out of the room without it.... Just took a look at this one and it does have a volume pedal set up. It was either already there, or that would be the only change I made to the original tone file. I made it select the different acoustics and set them up as their own patches in my HD500.
PS: OK, so the system wouldn't allow "h5e" file types. Jeesh -- now why wouldn't they at Line 6?? I renamed the extension ".TXT" -- we'll see if that goes through. Download and save the attached file and rename the extension ".h5e". If that doesn't work, I guess go looking for it at Custom Tone....
PPS: No Joy. Go look for it.
