I have been looking for a while, but can't quite find one. I know that some pedals have some effects that makes it sound somewhat like an acoustic, but I am looking for something that sounds like an acoustic straight out of the box (and plugged into an amp ). I want this guitar also to range to more modern rock or maybe some harder rock (maybe even some metal). I know it's a lot to ask for but, does anyone have any opinions on guitars?

Thanks

Semi hollow...

lol, im not sure about this, you might just want to buy an electric acoustic, then just do some distortion etc to get the other electric tones your looking for.

Or just do a semi-hollow, idk.

No clean electric sounds like an acoustic imo, just get an acoustic guitar problem solved.

Whats wrong with a good old-fashioned, uh...acoustic guitar?
The idea that media is there to educate us, or to inform us, is ridiculous because that's about tenth or eleventh on their list...

I'd go with everyone else saying get an acoustic. Gretsch guitars sound acoustic when not plugged into an amp, but I'm not sure what they sound like plugged in because i dont have one. You might look into it though.

^He isn't looking for one.

Try a Godin.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

Well you could try the Line 6 Variax.....that can sort of do acoustic.....and alot of other instruments :S

but if your going for semi-hollow...69 Thinline Telecaster FTW! My friend bought one for his birthday and it can pull off some nice tones ....and with the right amp it can pull of some decent metal
we must become the change we want to see.

get any normal guitar, and put a ****in piezo pickup in it.


Bam.

i was just about to say that peizo = perfectly dry, flat sound

'heard parker fly's pretty good at the acoustic sound. they're good for rock distortion. I dunno about metal, tho
#14
ummm schecter make the C1 E/A just for this they have piezos built in to them you have a coil tap switch that activates the piezo and gives a really good acoustic sound and push it in and you have an electric sound, pretty cool guitars if i get 700.00 i may buy one
#15

You're a mod! That's friggin' great! Kudos man. First mod promotion I've actually seen.

Anyway, I think what you need are piezo pickups. I think there was an Ibanez that came with them?

Ibanez Talman electric acoustic.

clean it sounds JUST like an acoustic but for songs where you dont have time to switch to an electric (gigs) you can hit distortion and it sounds JUST like an electric.


Definatly look into one
