Best retro-fit electric pickup for my buddy's Collings?

Question

My band mate and buddy has a killer concert size Collings and the pickup sucks.  It feeds back and sounds nothing like the instrument it's amplifying.  Can anyone tell me the best system available.  And price is no object.  Thanks.

+20 on the recent generation of LR Baggs retrofit systems because that's about how many Anthems and Lyrics I've installed in a variety of mid- to upper-tier acoustics this year. While the Lyric is very good and quite sufficient, I prefer the Anthem as well. It simply sounds more rich, nicely full and robust. I've installed and troubleshot/fixed a variety of on-board acoustic systems this year and if I was upgrading my own go-to (self-restored and slightly modified '74 Gibson Hummingbird), it would get an Anthem, without question or hesitation.

Thanks, fellas.  I'll tell him to get the Anthem and get rid of the god awful Fishman thing he has in it!
