im considering buying one, a lot of people have said the boss ac3 is the best, but after listening it just sounds like it just ups the treble.

could you guys recommend a decent acoustic mod pedal?

There is no decent acoustic simulator pedal.

If you want to sound like an acoustic, buy an acoustic and plug into your amp or the PA.

Lol, it's the truth, it does make it sound more like an acoustic, but it's not worth the money IMO

The only way you can do that is with a stand like the one James Hetfield uses, and keep your electric still on you.

Just play clean instead, it's a lot less hassle.

Or use Piezos. They sound decent enough as a stand in, but still not the same as an acoustic. Though it gets you pretty close.

I used to own the AC-3. Don't waste your money. It costs about 100 bucks new, my acoustic (Yamaha) was 300 and is infinitely better.

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

Just watch Craigslist. There almost always people hard up for cash dumping good acoustics for next to nothing.

Im no expert, but you could probably make it sound better by adjusting your highs/volume and messing with some effects (reverb, chorus) when you switch to clean.

Still no substitute for an actual acoustic guitar though...

Wait I take it back, there is a pretty awesome acoustic sim, it's called

Line 6 James Tyler Variax

it's a guitar that comes out in about two months, it's pretty sweet but costs about 1000 US dollars at cheapest


If you knew this oh well, but that's the closest you're getting to good emulation without having an acoustic

that sounds like a good idea. but after looking up on piezo systems for several hours now, the whole thing seem mind boggling.

so far from my understanding (correct me if im wrong), its just piezoelectric components added to the bridge of an electric guitar then routed to a pushpull or switch (and back to an output). yet, i have no idea what to buy or even look at for an rg1550z. can someone point me in the right direction?

I have Peavey Generation Custom EX that has double humbuckers and a piezo in the bridge. I play the piezo using the Acoustasonic setting on my Fender Super Champ XD and it sounds like an acoustic. I also mix the piezo in with the regular pups and it can gets a single coil tone with the right mix.

MF closed them out for $200. MIne was a blem for $170, but I never found the blem.

This is similar....

^+1 I have the same guitar, and I run it stereo into two amps; the piezo into an a Michael Kelly PureCoustic w/ 4x12 Cab and then the humbuckers into a Peavey Classic 50 2x12 w/ 2x15 Cab.

Sounds great to have them both going at the same time.
