Well, my only acoustic, and the one I use for gigs is giving me a bit of trouble. It's a Takamine EC530SC (I think) with the TK-40 preamp. Sometimes when I play it plugged in, it gets this tremolo type effect going through the speaker. Don't get me wrong, I love tremolo, but it's no good mid song. I've got some wires to check still, so more on that if need be. It never occurred to me that needing a back up option for acoustic would come up, but it has. My new band does a little bit of everything, and we're also selling ourselves as being able to do acoustic shows. I'm also planing to venture out and do some solo/duo stuff as well. I'm very pleased with the Takamine's sound when plugged in. It's got one of the best amplified acoustic sounds. I'm looking for something that sounds great and a good price like my Tak. Got mine for just under $500. I'd also be interested in a different body style as well. I'd do a dreadnaught again without any reservations, but if I found something in the OM area, that would be cool too. What are you're suggestions?
