Does anyone have this? It looks pretty wicked. But, I want to know about the sound? Is it good? If not, can someone recommend me a decent acoustic maybe acoustic-electric for around the same price. I currently have an Ibanez, the acoustic Electric in the Jolt pack...

Never played it, but I can guarantee you that it won't sound good.
Nine planets surround the sun
Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much we take for granted


So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

^ What he said. By the laws of physics, it's not possible for that guitar to sound good.

Here's my suggestion: http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Yamaha-FG720S-Folk-Acoustic-Guitar?sku=518275

In general, flashy shaped/looking guitars don't sound very good. There are exceptions though, such as the Epiphone EJ-200 and humming birds, etc.

I'm not too sure about peoples replies. I've heard an acoustic flying V which sounded amazing, like completely bright, warm and clear...

Tbh, the best acoustic I could recommend is an ovation. You would have to save up a little bit more but it's definitely worth it. I just got one today and I've barely been able to put it down.

The laws of physics will not physically allow a Flying V or that acoustic guitar to sound good. Sharp angles ruin sound projection and tone. As well, both guitars are made of laminate, which makes it sound even worse.

These kinds of guitars are just gimmicks to appeal to the electric guitar playing community.

Listen to captivate. When it comes to acoustics, the man really knows what he's talking about.

This is right -- the reason is that the angles reduce the amount of vibrating surface area that the top has to move the air inside of the guitar. Also, the thin body simply means less air to move. The result will be a thin sound with no volume.

Try this on your acoustic -- take a piece of cardboard or something that you can use to cover your soundhole. Pluck your A string and listen to the difference between the sound with the soundhole covered and uncovered -- that difference is because the top is moving the air inside the guitar when the soundhole is uncovered. An acoustic like this will not be able to move the volume of air as a more traditional guitar -- even if it is laminated.

You might get a good sound amplified, but I doubt your getting good electronics at that price.

I'm a multiple Dean owner, and I won't touch a "pointycoustic"- nobody's. Like others have said, physics simply won't let its acoustic output compare to more traditionally shaped acoustics or A-Es.

I own this guitar and it sounds fantastic! better than any of my other acoustics....BUT only when plugged into an amp. I don't think it was ever really designed to be very loud on it's own.

..just my 2 cents.

OK, first this thread is four years old, so nobody really cares.

But, if the guitar only sounds good when it's plugged, then it's not really an acoustic, now is it?

This thread was long dead, and this model is discontinued. Did you really have to bring it back to life?

Oh I don't know. It does present the opportunity to heap more insult and abuse on Dean acoustics, so it can't be all bad.
