wait you ran acoustic through distortion? Do you like your ears, or even ur amp for that matter. Ok dumbass theres a big hallow echoing hole with a microphone in it, a lot of feedback and high gain isnt gonna affect it. Hmm. PWNED!

1. this guitar will work as well (if not even a little better) for the solos you are wanting to play. this guitar can play through any pedal (i.e. distortion) just like an electric can, so no worries there.

2. you said you like the guitar and having it makes you want to pick it up and play it. that's what you want out of a guitar, especially as a beginner. you want something you like and enjoy playing and something you want to play. if this guitar meets those standards then you are all set.

3. it shouldn't be too quiet to hear when played with other acoustics. the only thing that might drown your guitar out would be like a solid rosewood back and sides martin or something of that nature with a really really boomy and loud bass response. just taking a guess at your skill and age level, i doubt you will have to worry about anyone you'd be playing with having a guitar like this.

all in all, you're good to go man. you need to quit worrying about what guitar you have and whether it's the right one and just play the thing!

one more thing... you said you are going to be picking up an amp soon. make sure you get an acoustic amp and not an electric one.

oh and also... you don't have to be the best writer or the most articulate person in the world, man. just try using some sort of punctuation between your sentences/phrases/thoughts/whatever. again, i'm not trying to be rude to you at all. it's just in your own best interest to use punctuation. you don't even have to use it correctly necessarily.


so i guess i misunderstood him hmmm wht do u guys think

I'm with Kal on this one, who says you can't run an acoustic through effects (including distortion)? John Butler holds pretty much universal respect in the acoustic forum, and he runs his acoustic through a wah and an overdrive into a Marshall Jubilee.

Similarly, some of the must successful songs of all time have been recorded with a distorted acoustic. "jumpin' jack flash" by the Rolling Stones, one of the quintessential guitar riffs, is a distorted acoustic.

"Jacqueline" - Maton CW80

It can be done, but feedback will be an issue. At the very least, a soundhole feedback buster would be a safe bet.

Oh, BTW...while John Butler is revered here for Ocean, most of the people haven't heard any of his other stuff. Its a shame, I saw him live a couple years ago, absouletly amazing player and band.

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.

notice the name of the thread "amp and effect pedals"... not "amp and distortion pedals".

ovations sound gr8 with a slight reverb/delay
