So I'm thinking of getting my first electro-acoustic. I'm a pretty good acoustic guitarist but i've only recently thought of getting an electro- acoustic. I've kind of thought of getting an applause guitar but i have no idea what they are like. I would ideally like something that sounds good without an amp too. ta.

I've got an Ovation 'Legend,' it sounds good unplugged as well as plugged in.
But it was around $2000, so it kind of depends on your budget
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

I would only get an Ovation if it were american made.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

What is your price range? I'm assuming it is pretty low if you are looking at Applause.

Typically it's hard, basically impossible, to find a decent quality acoustic-electric with a solid top for under around $450.
