    I havent had an acoustic for 20yrs and found this on Craigslist... thought it had a little character with the inlays. Smallish "concert" size, flat neck (Maple, which I like a lot), mahogany, walnut fretboard. It's pretty sturdy and not super bright n airy, it seems to "compress" a little after a certain point when you dig in which is nice for my hoachy playing style.

    Tim Armstrong, like the Rancid/Op Ivy guy?

    Yeah I got a kick out of it. I saw this and thought- these guys sound terrible, but it grew on me ;)

    My dad bought me one of these as a gift a handful of years back. It's the only acoustic I own, and I really like it. Looks a little silly with the inlays, but otherwise looks really nice. (I like the darker woods and pickguard.) I wish I had a way to properly record acoustic, as I'd do it more often if I could. I like the sound of the piezo, but it's not the same as a nicely recorded acoustic guitar.
