I saved money and was completely satisfied with the tone and playibility of the instrument. Thanks for everyones input. I would ha...

Re: !ACOUSTIC UNCERTAINTY!

Point taken. I have been thinking of some specific specs I want in an acoustic and I have supplemented that with everybodys input on here. I completly forgot about seagulls and there is a dealer about 40 minutes from my location so I think I will give them a try! Thanks again for everybodys advice! ...

!ACOUSTIC UNCERTAINTY!

I have recently gotten engaged and my fiancee is going to purchase an acoustic for me as a wedding gift, (I feel very privileged to have such a wonderful partner!)

Re: Self Esteem (Offspring cover)
