i have been playing electric for a while now and i figured its time i get a good acoustic-electric. i started off on a regular acoustic which i still have but its not too great so my question is if i get this acoustic electric do i have to buy a special kind of amp for acoustics cause i know they sell them or can i use it through my b-52 half stack which i use for my electric

You can, but it won't sound as good as it could sound.

Can you just play unplugged acoustic until you have enough money to buy a dedicated (and good) acoustic amp?

You could probably get a decent sound out of the b-52 with an acoustic electric. Like GNR said it won't be perfect, but it would certainly hold up for a small gig or band practice. You could probably figure most gigs will have a PA you can plug straight into.

Yeah, or even if you NEED it live, you can buy a cheap little DI box to go through to the PA just to help the quality.

Yeah, as long as it has an onboard preamp you should be able to plug right into the PA

Yup!

And like I said, you could buy a DI box or external preamp to help the tone if you need to.

Advice given here is good. Honestly you don't need an acoustic amp (though they will give you a sound that is truer to the actual sound of the acoustic.)

Now then, find what interests you, and take them all to A&C so we can continue to help point you in the right direction!

(some free advice: avoid Fender, Ibanez, Dean, and Schecter)
