Guitar?
 
i play a little, but i will probably get really hardcore with it since i just got a $500 acoustic today (it was on sale- real price was like $800 :laugh:). anyone else shred with their axe?

my guitars:
2002 squier strat standard with fender guts :dunno:
2009 seagull coastline s6 GT

Nice deal! Looks like you'll even be more dedicated to guitar playing after your purchase. I just bought my first ever acoustic guitar a month or so ago and I'm struggling to learn it (sigh). Love the sound of it though. Now I'm thinking of selling it on Craigslist, kinda losing the motivation.. ah.

i was losing interest on my electric, but the acoustic has revived my interest. i think that i should have gotten a better guitar in the beginning. what kind do you have?

The acoustic I have is a Jasmine by Takamine. I think the neck is too wide, so learning A and then going to G is a bit hard. Dude, I swear.. it's like my fingers are not long enough to cover all the strings or.. chords :dunno:

Spontaneous buy, haha. The guy who sold me the guitar was this old dude who plays bass in a local band. He was very helpful about it, he said any time someone is eager to learn how to play the guitar, he's more than happy and willing to help them out. It was nice meeting someone who wanted to promote or share their hobby.

Oh BTW, do you have any tips on maintaining the acoustic? Specifically, do you really *need* to keep it in a humidified room? I'm wondering if it's okay to just store it in my room, nothing fancy with regards to room climate compared to what I've seen in some guitar stores.

About the storage the only thing ive ever had problems with in storing a guitar without playing it is the strings rust. But if you buy elixir strings their coated and on an acoustic that fixes the rust issue. But that seagull is a great acoustic guitar. I have an alvarez yari and thats all i play. Not a big electric fan. The strings on an acoustic are tighter and I just like the feedback better. Anyway just kinda had to coment on this one haha.

I used to have a warwick thumb bass neck through design, one of the sexiest and best sounding basses money can buy. I miss it a lot lol.

That was my first guitar. I loved it!! Is that the spruce top or ceder top?

I recently upgraded to a Breedlove J22 with Koa front/back/sides. They make beautiful guitars that are as much art as they are instruments. Enjoy your new guitar

thanks! its a cedar top and i love the deep bass it gets from chords. koa wood like from longboards? that sounds pretty cool!

just keep it in a case (hard is better), above ground and away from vents. if you like go on a plane and come off or go on a long drive, wait 5-7 hours before taking it out of the case so the pressure changes slower and there are no cracks in the top. in the winter it is good to have a humidifier in the case too :)
