A few months ago I got me one of these:



yes, I am a lefty lol. Has anyone else got one? or at least another acrylic? I think it's pretty sweet, although I had to order it from America (it subsequently came broke, but the dudes who sold it gave me $100 to repair it, so thats not bad), since all I own is a Squier and an acoustic, I can only compare it to guitars I've played in stores and to be honest, its actually very good, the tone is gorgeous and very full, very Gibson esque! goes out of tune sometimes though... but I don't know whether thats to do with the acrylic or not.

Anyone else got an acrylic, or a Galveston?

Played an acrylic Warlock once. The tone could never stand up to a mahogany body IMO...

Looks pretty sweet tbh, but first thing I would do is put EMGs in it, and never record with it. Strictly stage guitar...

aye, I wanted something with humbuckers and 22 frets, I just thought what the hell and got the wildest guitar I could in the price range. The buckers are pretty sweet actually! they're their own brand and are very full and fat sounding. I wanted it to play more metal and have more sustain than my squier and it does, but it also sounds fantastic clean too!

Mahogany is overrated, Elm wood not infected with Dutch elm disease is where it's at

I have played a lot of the later acrylic guitars and they are OK but pretty heavy and lack in sound. Back in the day I owned a few Dan Armstrong guitars. Ampeg actually has re-released them and I got to play one and it was decent. As far as tone goes you can't beat wood IMO.

I don't know how good Galveston acrylic are, the regular guitars they make I have tried were not all that great. They were OK but nothing special.

As long as you like it that is all that counts. I always get grief from friends about some of my guitars because they are not huge expensive brand name guitars.

Will preamp tubes turn black and melt slightly undernormal conditions and still work?

I must say that the body looks fairly small to me.... :/

For the rest, the only acryllic model guitar I've liked so far was a JEM....

'Practice amp' = amp you practice with? In my case, Peavey 6505+ and 4x12
I don't do things small
