I'm referring to guitars that are supposedly the best of both worlds: electric guitar tones and acoustic guitar tones in one instrument. I'm not thinking exclusively of one make and model, since there are a number of them that have been made. Seeing a post by @Fergyuk in the “Hollow, how are you” thread of his Crafter SAT QMOS hybrid guitar made me think of this subject. BTW, to me the Crafter looks a little like the South Korean company's take on a Taylor T5, and so I thought of that instrument as well. Of course, FMIC has their recent Acoustasonic American series, in Tele and Strat body styles. But more than a decade ago they made an Acoustasonic Tele Deluxe, if I remember the name correctly. And I’m sure there are makes and models of hybrid guitars out there that I’m not aware of. My question isn’t about what all is available in this market. My question for those that have them is this: Do they work for you? Do you get realistic electric guitar tones out of it AND good acoustic tones? If so, how do you make it work? How do you amplify one guitar to get it to sound realistically like both? What kind of strings do you use that allow for realistic tones on both sides of the spectrum? Or do they work for you as in, a “close enough” approximation of having an acoustic/electric and a tele on stage with you?
