hi all, fyi im chucking my tonelab st up for slae soon, $290. hardly used it, now going on a travel so getting a travel acoustic.
im thinking a cort mini now, or a full sized thin line.
can anyone recommend an acoustic thin for less than $500 (used is ok). will prob go the travel 3/4 size though.
......course not really under $500
my jmp... i personally don't think it is what prawnboy wants.
Come now, a JMP is what everyone wants.
has anyone played a 3/4 size acoustic? is it too difficult on the left hand?
i also like the look of this thing body from cort
These are great. Surprisingly 95% of the time you fold it out, it's still perfectly in tune. Sound nice too
so you can get me one for the money im looking at? ;-P
i think i might just go the 3/4, thin body is still a big guitar despite being easier to play.
yeh well, maybe not under a grand . Maybe check out those Martin travel guitars - only about $700ish rrp iirc.
i looked at the martin lx1, but for $800 you have the baby taylor (check out the maple version mmmm) and the mini maton. for $280 though i can get a cort earth mini, and from all accounts they are as good as the others. all of them being solid tops.
I'd probably look into a yamaha silent guitar as well
That requires some sort of amplification though, surely?
Played with a Dean V last night, the red Corey Beaulieu Trivium signature model. Very nice guitar, but tbh I couldn't tell too much difference between my LTD-f250 and the V? The action is fairly similar on both guitars, very low, and they're both neck through.
The dean had a fatter neck, and the pickups were the biggest difference - the Dean seemed to have higher output pups, but the LTD's seems to be more crunchy/low end.
Eh either way it was fun playing with a $3000 guitar and good to finally get my hands on a V
Niiice one Ed, I'm jealous, I know you're not a fan of Trivium but I still am and I've always wanted Coreys sig V, its an awesome looking axe.
They do but considering what size it packs up into - you could get something like a microcube and it'd still be extremely portable. Or just use headphones via the headphone jack.
Do guitars have to be made out of wood? Obviously there's the whole 'tone' thing but that's subjective anyway. Can I get a guitar made of marble or something?
carbon fibre has been done
aluminium has been done
ive seen a brick done (with a peizo bridge though)
im sure there are many more.
Got a back brace handy?
See old guitar brands like Supro, Silvertone, Airline ( pretty much fibreglass) and the venerable Danelectro (masonite - kitchen top material) Also Lucite was used by Dan aRmstrong and BC Rich used to do some acrylic guitars. James Trussart makes full steel bodied electric guitars same with the Tony Zemaitis (these are more steel top on a chambered body) Kramer and Travis Bean did some all aluminium stuff as well
