    After spending last night playing blues licks in the kitchen while making chili...


    Yeah. That guitar kicks ass. One of the best guitar purchases I've ever made. :agreed:

    I still got my cheap little Sonata from 10 years ago....I love that guitar. I bring it out every once in a while. Acoustics just sound nice sometimes.

    Yeah, it's just such a damned cool experience - I'm an electric player at heart and I suspect always will be, but there's just something about the way an acoustic resonates as you play it that makes me really happy. :wub:

    Nice, i always loved the acoustic sound when the guitar it's detuned.

    BTW i almost bought a 10 string clasic guitar, but i used the money for other things.

    ^^I'm about 90% sure I'm gonna buy either the nylon-string or the acoustic-electric or maybe even both, if I do, you'll get a review.

    A Martin MC-16GTE. It's not one of their topof the line models, but it was conceived of as more ofa "player's guitar" - built like a D-series, but without the cosmetic detailing. As I think some of the inlay work is a little overdone on their top-of-the-line models, that's just fine by me. :agreed:

    Can't go wrong with a decent acoustic...they become like your favourite pair of pyjamas after a while.

    i love my washburn acoustic. it needs new strings, but the neck is really comfy for all kinds of chord work, and it sounds really nice. back and sides are also birdseye maple, so no complaints on the look factor either :).

    Damn, I still need to get me an acoustic. I remember back in 1995, for the whole summer, that's all I played was my mother's Fender acoustic, which my brother inherited and then he later bought a Yamaha for her, I play hers every now and then. A friend of mine just picked up an Alvarez. It's very nice and it plays awesome. Yeah, I should buy myself an acoustic. :agreed:

    An Acoustic 7 would be better though. :D

    How can you love your acoustic? The hole is too big. :lol:
    Seriously, I love mine too, though it's just a Seagull S6. No frills, warm tone machine.

    I need a gianni really bad, I have my alvarez tuned in B-minor with the low b-string and it sounds so good, but of course beeing tuned in chords kinda fuck up some fingerings, so having a 7-string would be much betters.
