Uncle Phil Electric guitar as a solo instrument (56* d) RE: Electric guitar as a solo instrument 30 Nov 18

I play both acoustic and electric guitars, often on the same night. To my mind, they are different instruments. An electric, with near endless sustain, 22 accessible frets and lots of tone controls, sounds and plays differently than an acoustic. An electric is not the same thing as an acoustic that can be played really, really loud. I donít know about where you play, but around here amplification is required to play an acoustic on stage and the choice of pickup is a frequent topic for debate. I have Baggs IBbeams in both of the acoustics that I play out and I like the way they sound.
