So i'm going off to college in a few days and i have to pick either my Yamaha acoustic or my Casino electric to take to school with me.

My parents are having me use a bus rather than driving me there themselves (--__--') so i obviously can't take both.

So should i take my electric w/ me, or should i go w/ my acoustic. I'm currently learning fingerstyle but i'd like to start learning blues next. What instrument will keep me busy the most, for the next 4 months?

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

If your playing with people take the acoustic If your not bringing an amp the, acoustic guitar will make jamming with others possible. If you can take a pocket amp take the electric there's nothing stopping your from learning finger-style on that.

I'd take the acoustic since you won't have to worry about volume and you'll get all the chicas.
HILT!

Where's Waldo?

Go with the acoustic - the electric won't be much fun if you don't take all the other necessary bits, and you can also be the main man at late night gatherings when people want live music

Take the Casino if you can bring an amp/pod or something.

Don't become an acoustic douchebag.

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

The acoustic would be better in every way possible for you.

In all seriousness though, the acoustic will benefit you more. Less maintenance, and it's easier to get around then say, a guitar/w an amp. As long as you don't go around in the middle of the courtyard and play overused Zep tunes, hoping some plastic asks you to play something for her, you won't look like, that guy.


Cynical people...

Lol pussy or respect. I really don't care for either, i just want to learn songs that inspire me. I'll go w/ my Casino and then have my acoustic mailed to me or something.

Thx guys ^^

Who says you can't play the blues on the acoustic? I would definitely take the acoustic unless you're taking an amp with you.

electric is what i wanted to say, but acoustic makes more sense: no electricity needed, no people telling you to turn it down, chicks think you're deep n' shit.

Plus you can play blues just fine on an acoustic, just listen to loads of Robert Johnson!

I did this for 3 years with my old ibanez artcore, it was a hollow-body and plugging it in always got me complaints, so I would just play it unplugged

Good choice.
One that's good is that you can use headphones with the amp so you can play at night and not be a dick to your neighbors.
Respect.

I would say the Casino. It's loud enough to substitute for an acoustic if you're playing unplugged or for/with a small group, and then you can plug it in to do whatever.

I brought my Ibanez AS73B (semihollow, Dot/355 copy) with me for that reason, and it's worked out just fine so far,

The casino hollowbody should be loud enough for jamming on by yourself without an amp (although it won't sound as good as when it's plugged in) but it will still help you develop your skills and in my opinion be much more fun than playing an acoustic all the time... man i hate acoustics. My Ibanez Artcore is loud enough for people around me to hear me and still versatile enough that I'm not limited to chording and fingerpicking on it.

Honestly, the question is - what's going to make you happy?

I tend to think Hollowbodies make for mediocre acoustic guitars - so if you can't bring an amp, it's a no-brainer - bring the acoustic.

But otherwise it depends who you are as a musician - where you want to play, with/for who, and so on. I tend to think you'll have more opportunities to play an acoustic, but YMMV.
