RMC Pickups Yairi WY1RR synth ready acoustic

Hi Gang,
ive been considering installing RMC pickups on my
acoustics (steel and nylon) so i can have access to my
roland synth guitar.There are guitars like the godins
with this systems built in but i want to be able to
also drum on the guitar and get all the normal
acoustic nuances you cannot get with a godin.
My question is: does anybody have experiences with
this pickups installed in their favorite acoustics and
has anybody tried the  Yairi WY1RR synth ready
