Think Aaron Lewis, Think Matthews, think Puddle of Mudd, etc... I love playing acoustic. But I don't know what options are out there for gigs/bands etc.

Pottstown, PA area, hit me up if you want to know more.

How close is that to State College/Central PA?
The Pit. The Movie.

I was looking into this ( http://www.bose.com/controller?event=VIEW_STATIC_PAGE_EVENT&url=/musicians/index.jsp ) Bose sound system but it seemed a little expensive...until I saw this guy (purely acoustic) using one at a local bar and it sounded AMAZING! I talked to him for a while and he said he spent about 3grand all together on it. He also said he uses it with a band. Anyway it seems to be worth the 3 grand if you ask me. Good luck
