Why I Love My Acoustic Guitar

Musician's Friend posed the question: Why do you love your acoustic guitar to some various folks in the websphere and they must have run out of interesting musicians because they asked me for my comments.

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've picked up my acoustic guitar on a regular basis.  But I do love that guitar.  It's a slightly beat up Ovation from the 70s that I bought  used from a guy.  It was a lot of money at the time, but it seemed like a good deal.  Honestly, I thought the guitar was probably hot.  Still, I dove in and started learning open chords and then, rather painfully, barre chords etc.  It was my first guitar, so I still have a soft spot for it. 

You can read the full article over at Musician's Friend Hub.  There are also plenty of other good articles on gear as well as a great interview with Paul Stanley from KISS about his career and his line of Washburn guitars.


I grew up with an old beat-up Yamaha acoustic guitar and like you I still have a soft spot for it. Sounds like your Ovation was more expensive than my Yamaha, though :)
