Who plays electric and has an acoustic?
 
Ever sometimes feel like going acoustic just to get away from electric for awhile?

I have an acoustic next to my sofa at all times. Great for playing during the adverts, whilst watching TV.

A dash of country blues here and there is always good. Its a 12 string (though currently with just six strings) bought to play things like this

Besides my Ibanez Gio, i had a semi acoustic guitar to play when it's not suitable to make noise especially at night.
why semi? because i had Yamaha Electric Drum as well and sometimes my friends would drop by and jammed for a while.
semi acoustic allow me to plug it at pc speaker. (for rythm guitar or clean acoustic plucking.)

I keep a Ibanez acoustic in the living room, for when I take the dog out/have a smoke. I don't know the model. It's got a diamond soundhole, and diamond inlays. Onboard eq, but more importantly, onboard tuner. I use it for dicking around.

^ I'm selling my Takamine :2thumbups:

I play both. My dad has some kind of custom acoustic from a small luthier in louisiana. It's a Peterson and it is the most amazing acoustic I have ever played.

i have a cheap hondo from the 80s that is more or less my main guitar heh, electrics are kinda hard to play around my house without a whole lotta bitchin from the family :-O

I still have the acoustic I learned to play on. And have bought an acoustic 12-string as well.

I have lots of electrics but acoustics are fun, and good for camping trips and such.

imo acoustic guitars are the ultimate rythem guitar in a band, it's worked for alot of bands.... acoustics have a nice woody tone LOL...... all kidding aside some of my favorite stuff is from heavy bands doing "unplugged" gigs..... breaking benjamin is a perfect example, youtube their unplugged shit, good heavy band GREAT acoustic band....... and acoustics can be just as heavy as an electric.....
