Get a Suhr. They are exceptional.


There appears to be very few stockists.

Mine was from Peach who are great to deal with. I think Sounds Great, GuitarGuitar and Project Music all sell new Suhrs.

Suhr are probably the only brand I would buy without playing it first. They are that good.

Peach usually have some decent discounts around Black Friday time if you can hang on a bit. You need to be registered for their emails.

If you can, go to a shop with a good variety of guitars in your price range and play lots of them. Eventually one will feel right.

Try some of the Chinese brands like Recording King who offer solid woods at impressive prices.

Yamaha are playable and pretty consistent. Always used them. My early 80's model is going strong and never had any issues.

Gone for the Yamaha F370 in black

Just re-read this whole thread. Many pictures are AWOL but it's still a good old read.

I can only see one Suhr ( left handed). I bought an amp instead.

Have a Washburn Acoustic and a Yamaha Pacific electric for over 10 years.
Look great in our spare room. Mint condition.
Still can only just strum two chords together

One more than Miley Cyrus!

Skintagain 23-11-2018 06:44 AM

I have a Strat, an Epiphone les paul-a-like and a lindo thin acoustic. I also have a couple of uke's a kala electro acoustic and mahalo les paul-a-like (I must learn triples and splits).

I keep them all in my study except the Strat which is well hidden so the grandkids can't get hold of it.

I go through months of playing followed by months of not touching them. Favourite players, Eric Blackmon and Marty Shwartz.

Going to be a stupid question no doubt...

My new guitar has only one strap pin. Where do I attach the other end of the strap ?

Awaits piss take ..

hughff 26-11-2018 10:54 AM

If it's a classical/acoustic guitar, you sometimes tie the strap at the end of the neck. thus:

PS, clearly, you go under the strings...

Or here (you can use a bit of string for this).

thanks guys

I’m an OK acoustic player. I have a Tanglewood 6 string and a nice Takamine 12 string with a big sound. They both suit my fingerpicking style. They are both acoustic/electric and I tried a Les Paul Standard copy Epiphone which was a beautiful looking instrument but totally unsuited to the sound I like from an acoustic.

Any recommendations for an electric guitar that sounds like a big acoustic? Someone said Gretch with the hollow bodies. Anyone else gone down this route? Thanks and have a great Christmas.

Gretsch Electromatic are great. Ibanez Artcore are very similar, but thinner body I believe. Epiphone Dot is a great buy for the money too. Always regret selling mine.

An electric 12 string would probably work for you, Lombardo. Alternatively, I have an Epiphone Les Paul Ultra III, which has a piezo as well as magnetic pickups. While I have other guitars that I prefer, you do get a really lovely sound when you play the piezo and neck pickups together through a clean amp.

Yes to the first two. Son wants a Gretsch Streamliner P90 Limited Edition for his birthday, though I have seen a lovely powder blue Ibanez for about the same price. For me, it would have to be a Falcon.

Lombardo 888 27-12-2018 07:25 PM

Thanks guys, very helpful. Off to GuitarGuitar in Epsom. They have a lot of Gretsch there.
