if you got a regular acoustic, yes you would use a mic. with an acoustic-electric you would most likely use your acoustic amp. and you can use electric guitar strings, but stick with acoustic strings. some popular brands are elixir, dr, etc...

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

With a regular acoustic you can spend anywhere from 30bucks upwards on a soundhole pickup and play through that. Or you can mic it. A condenser mic you be best, but any type of mic will do in the end

Would a pre-amp be nessesary in combination with a condenser mic?

Good question.
I don't know really know that much on mics, just passing on some information that i have found previously.
I would assume that a pre-amp would give you more options on EQing and things like that which might be important. But I think you would be able to do without.

Anyone else with more experience able to chime in?
