hey, im thinking if this would work.

uhm, accoustic guitar plug into a overdrive distortion into a electric guitar amplifier.

do you think it will work? For those who have these stuffs pls try it and post here so i know if i should buy these stuffs.

thanks in advance.

I think you'd get a bunch of Feedback...

Accoustic's just aren't made for that. JMHO

I used to do it a time ago with my pc and Amplitube VST, the result was not that good, much feedback like the person abov me stated.

Yeah, feedback would be a big issue.

However, it would work better if you used a magnetic pickup (like on an electric guitar) rather than a piezo. It would basically be like using an archtop electric.

Well, there's this mod that can help with the problem...



...you don't wanna see the back, though.

i have an acoustic/electric an amp, but i keep it acoustic cuz the amp works like crap ;(
maybe with a better cord...if i collect enough box tops...
once my bro used it w/his amp and it was sweeeeeeet! not too much feedback, as i remember.
#9
Damien rice anyone? It can work if done correctly, one way to do it is taking a ridiculous amount of distance from the amp or a magnetic pickup as said already, or just eq'ing the amo dirty enough, or getting one of those electro acoustics that have a carbon fiber body like ovation, i reckon those don't fb as much

so you guys mean is to change my accoustic pickup into a electric guitar pickup, and my strings into a electric guitar strings?
#11
Get a decent electric guitar pickup at least, that would help and block the sound hole, you get those rubber things for it but, I'd be suprised if it sounded that good because of the body. Have you tried youtube for examples?

better than I thought it would be.

hey, uhm what kind of elec. gtr pickup are you saying? And how would i block the soundhole? Isn't it soundhole is where you put the pickups?

#14
Uhm i'm a totally noob about that, ok so you mean is i should put a guitar sound hole cover in my acoustic to lessen the feedback? Then put the elec. gtr pickup where? On the top of the sound hole cover?

by the way thanks for all the help @twidler

I run a light fuzz (read fuzz knob up one degree) through acoustic sometimes for a song I wrote years ago and it sounds pretty decent
