sybera Posted September 7, 2003 Share Posted September 7, 2003 Hello I'm new to this forum and hoping for a bit of advice re. buying a new guitar. I've been playing for years but have rarely changed guitars and I'm now looking for either an electro-acoustic that sounds as natural as possible when amplified, or an acoustic which I can have fitted with a decent pickup. A friend has recommended that I get a nice acoustic and fit a Fishman Rare Earth Blend pickup, the idea being that the mic component will give the natural/non-piezo quality I'm looking for. I'd love to hear from anyone who can comment on the merits of this idea as opposed to getting an electro-acoustic, or anyone who can recommend me a really nice, non-scratchy sounding electro-acoustic. I don't seem to be finding one so far! I strum more than I play finger style, but I do play finger style too. Ideally I don't want to spend more than about £1000, which is around $1500, but I would stretch that for something that was just right. I'd be very grateful for input from the experienced and knowledgeable people around here. Thank you Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
