I am doing an acoustic project with two other members of my current band; we'll be playing mostly unique covers-of-covers (Billie Jean by Chris Cornell, Sober by Staind, etc.). We're doing open mic nights for fun, and opening for ourselves (acoustic, then another band, then electric). I have been shopping for an ABG to use for this project. I really like the feel of the Takamine G-series neck: low, fast action. I am also very interested in trying a Washburn AB40SH (Stu Hamm sig ABG). I have been eyeballing an Ovation on evilBay too. Unfortunately, no one stocks most of these. I have read all of the ABG threads on here, and they all revolve around the same issue: not loud enough for acoustic use. I will be playing through an amp, as will be the guitars, and vox are going through the PA. So, removing acoustic volume/presence from the equation, I would like to know your thoughts on the Takamine and Washburn models I mentioned, as well as any others that boast low, fast fretting and a great feel.
