I don't own one at the moment. I've got a classical on loan though. Not bad, but a little warmer than what I'd like.

Re: Anyone here not have an Acoustic guitar??

My father has one, not sure what make it is, but it's really awkward for me to play. He lent it to some friends years ago and they trashed it, so he's fixed it up as best as he can, and to be honest, it sounds really nice. A shame it's like holding 3 LP's at once.

I don't have one personally, as I'm happy with my LP at the moment. I will eventually get a small acoustic though.

I've had a few. I gave my ex-girlfriend a beautiful Seagull S-20 Twentieth Anniversary model that I wish I'd have kept when we broke up and she asked if I'd like it back.

I have an Alvarez PD91s acoustic.

There's something great about how natural an acoustic is.

Re: Anyone here not have an Acoustic guitar??

I now have 3 Gibson & 1 Fender electrics, plus a Jazz Bass, and an Aussie made Cole Clark Fat Lady dreadnought acoustic. I don't think Cole Clarke are too well known in the US. They are a great guitar, made out of local solid timbers like Queensland Bunya & Tasmanian Maple.

My Cole Clark Fat Lady. It's as light as a feather and plays really well. The Qld Bunya looks really cool in person, the photos don't do it justice. I don't know of any other acoustic in the price range that comes close.

Re: Anyone here not have an Acoustic guitar??

3 for me - a Takamine F400-s 12-string, a Yamaha APX-6L 6-string, both with piezo pickups and preamps, and an old nylon string folk guitar (maybe classical - hard to tell) that was my first guitar ever.

Nope.

But still in the very early days of electric.

Maybe one day but not top of my list.

I have 3 electrics, but am looking for a wider spread string accoustic for my wife, shes having a hard time with regular strings spread of the Laguna I bought her to learn on. Any such thing out there?

I have a Crown acoustic i bought new 35 years ago and an American made Taylor Big Baby.

How can anyone not have an acoustic guitar? I don't think I could live with fewer than five of them.

Re: Anyone here not have an Acoustic guitar??

I always have a couple laying around. I remember reading an interview with Roy Buchanon, and he said that you had to practice on one to improve as a guitarist. I have to agree as it definitely improves finger strength, and clarity of tone (it's too easy to cover up sloppiness on an overdriven amp).

Re: Anyone here not have an Acoustic guitar??

Well, I do have two acoustics, but I do know people when they say "Acoustic guitar" they mean a steel string flat top with 6 strings.

I have a classical and a 12 string--neither has built pickups--so they're acoustic that way as well.

But some people find it odd I don't have a steel string flat top with 6 strings.

That may be the next guitar I buy.
