Might pick up a national tri-cone to go along with my acoustics, but I think I'd be okay.
This but I certainly would miss the having amps. I think Id look at learning another instrument, Im not a big fan of playing acoustic guitar, if I could sing Id probably take more of an interest.
Id probably try learning piano next.
I learn and practice everything I play on acoustic anyway so it would be fine.
I'd miss the added sustain but the end to nuisance phone calls would be worth it.
Exactly how would this be different? GAS is an OCD. There’d be the folks who will debate the quality of MIM, especially as prices of USA models increase and MIM keeps getting better. The world will be divided into Taylor and Martin camps with Gibson still having its adherents even with broken headstocks. With no PRS, dentists will be forced to covet Lowdon. We’ll still have 4 or 6 or 10 or more guitars. We’ll still be debating wood, whether Rosewood or mahogany are better. We’ll feel perfectly at home in the brave new acoustic world. For me, of late I’ve been learning jazz. I’ll need to go out and find me a nice wide body “f” hole jazz box.
Glad to see everyone comfortable with going back to the stone age.
Oh heck yea!
I've been fooling with effects train and sorting out power supplies... I got sick of it last night and it was nice just to grab acoustic and it worked!
As long as I had my solid rosewood Yamaha LJ16, I’d be just fine. Thank you.
I pulled it out the other day, and wondered why I don’t more often. Such a pure way to play. Strings, wood, air, me...
The only volume knob is my picking / strumming dynamics. Acoustics are so awesomely percussive.
Even 10 years ago I'd have felt cheated but I'm older and get all the kicks I need off my old guitar. I've posted the crap out of this thing in the past. A flea market $50 1960 Harmony Sovereign, 1203. It's an OM size guitar with spruce top and mahogany neck, sides and one piece back. @Jakedog on this forum suggested I might like it rebuilt by Scott Baxendale down in Athens. He does neck reset, refret, nut and saddle, replaces the pinless bridge with pinned, removes the back and replaces the ladder bracing with scalloped, X type bracing.
Cost me a grand to do it. The guitar is never far from me and it just feels like magic. Has a timbre that you absolutely would never confuse for a dred, but such sweet, woody tone nonetheless. If I had one wish it would be to install an intonated saddle. I've got the tuning stretch figured out pretty perfect and it doesn't fly out of tune at all.
Yes...I could certainly do the challenge!
Acoustic only? Yeah no problems.
Someone mentioned piano earlier. The best night at the pub many, many years ago was when there was a severe thunder storm and all the power went out. In the darkness some guy sat down at the piano and played the most haunting music. It really fitted the situation. When the power eventually came back on he just got up and walked away.
Magical. It’s cool how every so often, we are privileged to be present during a special moment where everything seems to coalesce.
Four to choose from:
Edit: two of these can be plugged in, but they usually aren't.
I would miss my tele plugged in.....but I have several Dreadnoughts that have a very loud “Bark” so I’d be good 2 go!
Living off the grid on hydro power sometimes restricts me to acoustic only during late summer and early spring because of low water in the creek. Of course, the correct answer is:
I'd miss my Teles, but I feel reasonably well prepared. My Mule comes everywhere with me.
I would be fine. Only 7 or 8 of my musical instruments are electric. If I really felt the need to play one of those, I have a Pignose and a Vox DA5 that run on batteries.
A kid with little money (like I was) will buy a guitar first, then an amp. The other way around would just be stupid.
That's my goal, almost there... I haven't touched an electric guitar in months.
