Whether you’re working up acoustic versions of your death metal anthems, or dropping into open mic nights to field test your latest compositions, having an acoustic guitar that you can plug in is a great way make your music sound spectacular in whatever scenario you find yourself in. Even if you primarily play with other acoustic instruments, eventually you'll find yourself playing in louder situations with drummers and amplified instruments. You’re going to need to plug in if you want your part to be heard by the audience. This is where an acoustic-electric guitar is worth it’s weight in gold.
Our selection of electrified acoustics come equipped with excellent pickup options like full-band piezo, soundhole-mounted, and some amazing proprietary transducer electronics that take the control of your guitar sound to the next level. Many come with great tone-shaping features like onboard tone and EQ controls. If you’re looking for the most accurate amplified acoustic sound, check out our acoustic-electric guitars with soundhole-mounted pickup and microphone combo units.
You have an incredibly varied choice of classic body shapes and styles. Choose from all the legendary shapes like dreadnaught, jumbo, and concert classes.
