    i have been playin the acoustic for a year and am pretty ok on it playin 7 yrs of keyboard helped
    now i have budget of max 9k and want a electric + amps
    someone told me that since my acoustic already has a pickup i should buy a processor and amps instead of goin for a electric
    plz tell me what to do
    i intend on playin rock and roll
    dire straits,eagles etc..

    and yeah 9k is all i have :(

    hey...9k is less but if thats the max lets try to make the best outta it.
    heres what i recommend:
    guitar: givson blue diamond(rs. 3500)
    amp:stranger (rs. 2000)
    proc: zoom 505(rs. 5000)
    ..tht shud hold u in good stead for 2 years.

    ps: its the guitarist, not the guitar that matters ;)

    givsons are given a lot of s.hit for nothing ...I own a Blue Diamond and its not bad, ive played hobners and signatures which are much worse...
    btw i pretty much own the same setup, heres a link to a recording i had posted some time back, check it out, ull get an idea of the sound:

    tell that someone to read up a bit
    an accoustic with an Pic up sounds diff, theres too much,,way too much feedback
    get an electric.........

    guess it depends more on the player than on the guitar
