Is there anyway to get such a sound out of my setup? ive been fiddling around with my amp abit but cant get anything close to an acoustic sound. is it even possible or will i need an effects pedal or something?

There's effect pedals for that, they're called acoustic simulators. But you can still hear a difference.

definately need a singlecoil pickup and acoustic simulator, but an acoustic guitar is probably a better bet.

well i was thinking of getting an acoustic anyway... although i was wondering if i could get that kind of sound out of my amp settings with an electric. seems as though i would need a pedal, i might aswell cut my losses and spend the money on an acoustic insted. thanks.

Electrics give a sound which has loads of mid and quite a bit of high - this is mirrored by ekectric guitar amps which are best at handling mid range frequencies and higha

Acoutics give a lot more lower frequency tones so if you plug your electic into a bass amp or PA system (anything which isn't designed for a guitar) then you'll get a more acoustic tone.

But your best bet is just to use an acoustic

Get an acoustic. Maybe it's just me, but every acoustic simulator I've played sounds like a load of crap.

Get an acoustic, electrics with acoustic tones, suck.

It's basically impossible. A piezo is the best bet.
