Hello everyone!
Before I begin I want to say that I'm not sure if this topic is in the right category,so If I did wrong opening this topic here just move it
Anyways,I've been playing E-guitar for over a year now and since my guitar is starting to fail(cheap thingy) I decided to buy a new guitar.The thing is I'm not sure whether to buy a new E-Guitar and put the old one in a closet or if I should keep my current one and buy a new Electro-acoustic....
Any suggestions?
BTW the new E-Guitar I'm interested in is the Ibanez GRG270 B,I would also like your opinion on this...Thx in advance

Lol wtf is an electro-acoustic?

Acoustic-Electrics sound like acoustics except they have pickups and can be plugged into amps.

Hollow Body electrics are electrics with an acousticy/mellow tone.

And that Ibanez seems like a pure electric, as far as i saw when i googled it.
G(g)od was like: "Make you an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch."

And i was like: "What's gopher wood?"

That's an acoustic-electric. If you want an acoustic guitar that can be made louder that's basically the same thing, if you want an actual electric guitar that's not what you want

Acoustic is fail, so I'm voting for the electrofiddle.

Acoustic is NOT fail. they are harder to play than electrics, and they are used for styles where certain techniques wouldnt sound good on an electric like the rumba strum pattern in Flamenco.

If you think acoustics sucks check these out:

They don't suck its just another style of playing and a different sound.

There are other forms of music that use guitars for sounds other than high gain heavily distorted riffs.

I'm assuming you can read, at which point the obvious trolling would be evident by glancing at the sig. Then again, this could be a troll-off.

Wuz srs. Gerudo Valley is one of the few acoustic tracks I'll bother listening to.

As far as Gio Ibanez guitars go, I'd rather have one without a trem. A GAX30 costs basically nothing and the couple I've tried played nicely. They sound like garbage of course, but then, everything around that price does.


As for you first question... you're basically looking at an acoustic guitar and an electric guitar. They are very different instruments and if you like both, you'll ultimately have to buy both. In what order you do that is your call.
