I once heard David Gilmour playing an acoustic and it almost sounded just like his Strat. Don't remember if he had a distortion pedal on or not though.

I think you should be fine as long as you don't run it through a Metal Zone or something.

The sound he gets from that is amazing. I think its a Martin as well ...

My friend put an Acoustic-Electric through an amp on "Killer" distortion as it was called... it was just bad. Don't EVER do that. Ever.

Probably had to do with the fact that it was a cheap guitar and a cheap Crate amp, though.
