I have only been playing guitar for three weeks and the thought of owning more than two or three is unbelievable. I myself am not a big fan of electric guitars, so I doubt I will ever buy one. Right now I have my mother's 32 year old acoustic Gibson. I love it and it sounds great. I also have my uncle's Yamaha, it doesn't sound very good, it's a classical guitar.

My Gibson doesn't have a pick up and I am not too fond of the idea of punching a hole in a 32 year old Gibson. Probably once I have come to the point where I am in a band of some sort I will buy a guitar with a pick up.

bdan, you don't have to put a hole in the guitar to use a pick-up, they have some really really good ones that clip in. When you are thinking you want to plug in, just check with your local store for the best option.

The hole that is needed to put a pickup in a guitar is a small one at the bottom of the bridge, to allow the wire from the piezo elemet to go to an endpin jack. The endpin is replaced with an endpin jack, which requires enlarging the endpin hole by a small amount. I probably wouldn't do it to an old guitar, but you could find a new guitar you like and have it done, or just buy one with electronic already installed.

Talking Hello All

I myself own two guitars:
My first gift from one of our former prime ministers (Canada) is a Takamine Santa Fe cedar top cutaway with pickup. Awesome inlays & an absolutely awesome sound plugged in or not!!! The gift came in the form of an awesome tax refund about 10 years ago ;-)

My second is a Yamaki Solid Top 12 String I got for a steal from a co-worker years ago. Sat in his closet for 23 years (built in '72). He needed some money so I asked him to bring it out. I just had to strum a few chords. Fell in love. It matured beautifully!!! Deep rich sound mmm mmm good!

I essentially play them to make a joyful noise to the Lord ;-)

I currently have 2 electrics and 2 acoustics.

Electrics:
Aria Pro II FE-10 Strat
- Pretty nice strat, it was my first guitar. I have problems with the eletronics on it though.

Epiphone LP100 Special Edition
- A nice LP, but nothing like a Gibson.

Acoustics:
Fender DG-9 Acoustic
- My cheap 6 string. This is my beater, I take it everywhere I go. It is really beat up, but has a ok sound. Has a chip in the neck from a car accident I was in. Guitar Repair man did a great job fixing it, buts never played the same since.

Seagull S12+
- This is the greatest 12 string I have every played. Has a really wide neck, but still playes well.




I'm saving for a Taylor, and hope to get it before Christmas. Then after that I want to get a PRS Custom 24.

Cool

I have owned 6 guitars, but I only have four right now.

1. JUNIOR-My first guitar-an Ibanez Performance acoustic which I still have and will always have (there's something sentimental about your first guitar, know what I mean?).

2. GOMER-an Ibanez electric that a friend GAVE me. It was a piece of junk to put it mildly and he wanted to get it out of his house. I did the same thing not too long ago.

3. THE HIGHLANDER-a beautiful dark green takamine EG-332GS(at least I think that's right) which I sold (STUPID). I really loved that guitar, but I didn't know that until after I sold it. I call it the highlander because it was banged around, dropped, hit, kicked, and mistreated enough to destroy any normal guitar, but the worst that ever happened to it was it came out of tune.

4. THE DREAMWEAVER-Now that brings me to my pride and joy. My Taylor 314CE Grand Auditorium. This thing is absolutely the best guitar I've ever owned and I will NEVER EVER let it get away from me (This is the one I was playing when I met my girlfriend at college a few weeks ago).

5. EXCALIBUR-My white 1999 American Standard Fender Stratocaster. There's no feeling in the world like the one you get when you play one of those off-the-cuff solos in the middle of an awesome up-beat praise song and it just all fits together and sounds great.(By the way, this doesn't happen near as often as I would like it to).

6. THE BLACK STALLION-An epiphone G-400 Custom. It's black with a white pick guard and 3(count 'em) 3 gold humbucker pickups. Can you say wicked? This guitar the metal player's dream, because it's cheap, it sounds great, the action on it let's you go into hyper speed when you want to, and the sound it gets out of my marshall amp makes it perfect for those songs that a lot of bite and crunch.

Sorry this went so long, but remember, YOU ASKED!!!!!!!

LOVE IN CHRIST

JOSH.

I can tell you what I dream about...it's very simple...
Gibson Les Paul Standard in Heritage Cherry Burst. So nice!!
I don't have one...yet I'm working on it. So, what advice can I get about buying an acoustic electric? Any favorites?
