Ani Difranco is an amazing acoustic folk singer/guitarist. She is pretty fucking cool. I recommend the albums "Up Up Up Up Up Up" or "Evolve," and the songs "Both Hands" and "Overlap."

Opeth's "Damnation" is also largely acoustic/clean, and it is one of the greatest things I've ever heard.

Goo Goo Dolls have good acoustic stuff just don't listen to their album Let Love in and you'd be good (and prepare to put up with unorthodox tunings from them too)

My bad, I just couldn't resist. xD

TS define acoustic, because when some people talk about that they mean just clean guitars with no distortion. Do you mean that or bands that use just acoustics?

Well that changes things up a little bit, I'll look through my iTunes stuff to see if I know any, but I can't think of any that haven't been said off the top of my head.

EDIT: Other than Tesla, they use lots of acoustics, thing is their leads and choruses tend to end up with some electric. Still worth checking out, imo...

Check out some of Zack Wylde and Black Label Society's acoustic stuff, mainly the albums "Book Of Shadows" and "Hangover Music: Vol. VI"

Jack Johnson and Dashboard Confessional are usually the way to go. Automatic removal of clothing as it pertains to females.

The Six Parts Seven

There may be some electric guitars in there, but there's no distortion. All cleans.

Beautiful cleans, if I might add.
