mooman Learning guitar: Acoustic vs Electric? (123* d) RE: Learning guitar: Acoustic vs Electric? 08 Mar 06


Not sure of the "bastard" label. An electro-acoustic is a type of instrument in its own right. My archtop electro-acoustic has an excellent acoustic sound (which several 'Catters will attest to) for a variety of styles and tunings but also has extremely good electronics when I need to plug in. Because of its versatility I have sold my other expensive handmade acoustic as being redundant and have just kept my steel-bodied resonator as a second guitar.

My advice, check all options and go with what seems right for your son.

Peace
