- Recommend me an electro-acoustic guitar!
Mate, i recently went to my guitar shop with a good sized budget for a new acoustic. I thought i knew what i wanted.
Played about 25 guitars and left with a £200 Freshman.
The moral for me, was try as many as you can before you buy and get advice from people who really know what they are on about.Posted 4 years ago
I fancy getting an electro acoustic guitar to try my hand at recording a few things.
I had been looking at the Takamine G series, but at the moment I’m probably like someone new to cycling thinking that Specialized are the only ones to buy.
Any other recommendations?
My budget is up to £500(ish).Posted 4 years agoIanMunroMember
I bought one a Tanglewood TW45 W OP E a few weeks back and love it! (had to change the strings though as I don’t like the sound of my fingers sliding on the default ones). Pretty much bang on the price you want – I know nothing about guitars though, so have no idea if it’s an Apollo, Orange or Specialized 😀

Well well well! I already have a tanglewood tw45, and I also love it. Sounds like a guitar 3 times the price (to my ears anyway!)
I’ll be honest and say I didn’t know what a Seymour Duncan woody was. Sounds like a porn stars stiffy. But I googled it and it could be perfect. Cheaper, takes up less space, and let’s me use my existing guitar. Don’t suppose you know anyone that’s selling one do you?Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember
Many, many artists use add-on piezo-electric pick-ups, stuck inside under the bridge, and it’s not far off what a commercial electric-acoustic guitar has built in. I’ve lost count of the number of people I’ve seen live who use add-on pick-ups.Posted 4 years ago
If you’ve got a 1930’s Martin or a classic Gibson or Martin Dreadnought, which is used on stage, it’s the only possible answer, apart from standing close to a mic on a stand…
This might help you sort out what to get:
