I mean, acoustic guitars don't need electronics or an amp to be loud and are generally cheaper. Is there something I am missing?

Please don't ban me.

Go ahead and spend your money, I don't care. It won't make you sound better.

Sure upgrading your gear will make you sound better.

they're frigging awesome

there are sounds you can get on an electric which you can't get on an acoustic. and a plugged-in electric is way, way louder than an acoustic. they're the main reasons, I suppose.

it's kind of like saying, "why are motorbikes so awesome when bicycles are cheaper?" Maybe that's an analogy too far (and I should clarify that I've never ridden a motorbike, and haven't ridden a bike since I was a kid ), but yeah. That's kind of the difference right there.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Its not really about volume for me. For the most part I play my electric at about the same volume as my acoustic. I just like the electric for the fuzz, reverb and delay.

I prefer to play an acoustic, because I prefer the tone. I have several high end guitars to choose from the wall, but I normally grab my go-to acoustic. At home, I practice rhythm and lead on acoustic almost 100% of the time. As someone else already mentioned, playing an acoustic builds finger strength and stamina. Now, when I'm playing out, it's a different story. I play with a rhythm guitarist and a bass player, so I typically grab my semi-hollowbody electric or my hybrid acoustic/electric, as the tone they produce fit in better with the group.
