Mike Guitars..what do you play? (227* d) RE: Guitars..what do you play? 10 Nov 98

This question may be off the topic but you guys sound like you can give me some advice (all is welcomed). I have a Norman acoustic, not a very high quality guitar but it has a great sound and i'd like to keep it. I want to own an acoustic-electric mainly because of the freedom of movement it allows (I find it hard to remain still in front of a microphone). . . I have two problems: I really can't afford to buy an acoustic-electric (i'm a starving student) and I tend not to enjoy the sound of many acoustic-electrics I hear . . . I find them too trebly, no guts. I can get my acoustic modified into an acoustic electric for a reasonable price and I'b be willing to do it. Could anyone out there tell me if this is a good idea? Will it ruin the sound of my guitar, will I be able to retain that deep bassy acoustic sound I so much adore? Thanks to all who have any answers for me.
