Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So at one point, I bought an electric guitar off a friend of mine. Started practicing, and had a good time doing so...until summer came around, and I started working 50 hour weeks.
Now the summer is winding down, and I expect to have a little more free time to practice, but not a ton of it. This is why I want to buy an acoustic to keep in the back seat of my car, so I can practice while I'm "stuck" on my college's campus between classes and work shifts.
So, I have a couple of questions:
- I hear these $50 Rogues are decent as long as you take them to a shop to get adjusted and toss the included strings. What's the verdict? I'd be pretty happy only investing this much, in case something happens to it (see third point).
- Failing that, what should I look at if I want to spend around $170 at most ($200 with $30 budgeted out for initial adjustment at my local shop, which I've been told pretty much every low-end acoustic will need)?
- I see there are acoustic guitar humidifiers. How well do these things work? Ideally I'd like to be able to leave my guitar in a hard case, in my car with the windows cracked, even on hot days. I commute, and therefore have no easy way to store the guitar in a cool place while on campus. Is that just way too much heat for these things to handle?
