Although not strictly acoustic, Opeth has some really mellow tunes on their "Heritage" album
Coil is probably my fav acoustic song by them which is from "watershed " album.

Santana and Perl jam both make good use of acoustic/Spanish guitars
in a lot of their songs.

The rest of my acoustic collection is from video games and anime music, but I don't think your mentally prepared for that stuff yet :P

Modest Mouse, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Slightly Stoopid all have wonderful acoustic songs. They're well known but there all rock pop. also Iron & Wine, Dispatch, The Shins, Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco, and Andrew Bird have some good acoustic stuff.

I agree with M. Ward. Add in Devendra Banhart to the mix. My first song from him, "Now That I Know", is one of my favorite acoustic tunes ever.

John butler's first few albums are completely acoustic, gradually adding more electrics/distortion as he went on(and by that I mean on like one or two songs an album lol). The new one's kinda poppy, but I am disappoint that no one has recommened him yet!
