If I have an acoustic guitar with pickups installed, how do I plug it into a combo jack a PreSonus FireStudio? Do I just need to run a 1/4 cable into the combo jack, or do I need to go into a DI box, then XLR into the combo jack?

If you have an external DI box, feed the amp via a standard guitar jack lead from a "through" or "by-pass" or "parallel" output on the DI box, i.e. the raw bass pickup signal. Use an XLR-XLR cable to connect the DI box output to a microphone input on the FireStudio; don't use a DI input jack on the FireStudio in this case.
