Can i plug an electro acoustic into an amp made for electric guitar? If so, would it be better on a solid state or tube amp (as i don't want any natural overdrive at high volumes)
Acoustics sound best through a full range PA system. Guitar amplifiers cant reproduce the high frequencies but they still sound ok if u back off the bass. Solid state would reproduce a more flat response.
Actually, the best amp depends on the pickup. Soundhole pickups sound BEST through electric guitar amps. Undersadle transducers sound best through acoustic guitar amps. Soundboard transducers sound best through a full range PA or a Keyboard amp. The reason for this is down to matching the impedance of the pickup with your amplifier.
