got any ideas? i LOVE seagulls. they sound awesome.
i sing in my church's student praise band, would love to play in the future...mostly chords but i really wanna get good and learn to fingerstyle and all that good stuff. (once i can actually keep time ;-) ) so all you guitar pros out there, got any advice for a minor guitar player heavy God seeker? (just thought id throw that one in)
thanx in advance.

so are we talking general guitar tips or brands to get. if the latter get what's confortable for you and sounds best to you. try lots of brands.

and if the former i'll just say keep at it. playing with cd's can be helpful for learning new techniques for strums,etc. but above all... play...

that's the best way to get better.

Ibanez AW100
Takamine 530 ce

I prefer the look and sound of the Ibanez, but the Takamine is acoustic/electric AND has a cutaway, and is a burgundy red, so I couldn't resist picking it up.

I don't know how good/bad this guitar is, but I like it. I just got it a few months ago. I got a Takamine Jasmine ES 31C.



I was looking mainly for a guitar that I could plug in, but I still wanted acoustic. This had those features and was in my price range. I'm just started learning but it's fun to play.

I've got a Yamaha DWX8c acoustic/electric, which is really nice.
An Ibanez Voyager rb-1, Reb Beach signature series(remember Winger?)
And lastly my baby. My '99 peavey Wolfgang Deluxe ST.
I work in a music store and played all there is and personally it is the best playing, feeling,and sounding guitar...to me.
I recently bought the Ibanez on e-bay and I'm already thinking of selling it. Not that its' a bad axe, but it feels like a toy compared to the Wolfgang.

Ok Dakota, the fact that you have that many guitars is just wrong. I thought I was wrong with four guitars, and you have nine.

For now, (and I stress that) my only guitar is an Alvarez acoustic/ electric and I enjoy it. Also was nice since I only had $280 to spend at the time and it cost $260. heh

Dakota,

You were the first that mentioned Ovation. I just (JUST) got an Ovation Celebrity A/E with the super shallow body and LOVE it. I actually went to the store looking for "anything but an Ovation" but I fell in love with this one. It's cherry red and has SWEET electronics (with built-in autotuner).

I also have a Guild small-body from 1982 that sounds good, but needs some setup work.

Wulfgar.... Ovations with super-shallow bodies sound awesome Mine has a normal shallow. Mine has autumn-burst finish, and op 24+ preamp... does yours have a op 50? sounds like it... Those are awesome!

I believe it's an Op20. It's so new, their lame website doesn't even list it, but it's basically a scaled back version of the Op40/50. It's still got three bands of EQ and an EQ in/out pushbutton.

I played a Tak that I really liked, but it was $100 more, didn't have any better action/playability and it was a full body. I also played the next step up in Ovation's line (the Balladeer) and it didn't play any better than the one I got for less (IMHO).
