True, but how often do people sit around campfires these days? If I were to sit by a campfire at dusk here in Iowa, after around the second verse of "Kumbaya" the mosquitoes would have sucked me dry into a shrunken cadaver! No thank you.

I dont know exactly why I want the guitar. I have plenty of free time right now and I want to spend that time in a creative way...
I know the electric guitar sounds more exciting(in my opinion).
The problem is i wont play the guitar in my home, so i wont be able to connect it with the ampl.

About the tune thing. I know there is tuner for guitars. Is only for the electric ones??

No the basic ones are for both electric and acoustics. They should even work with a standard tuned bass.

also there's nothing stopping you from playing an electric without plugging it into the amp. it just sounds a LOT thinner, but still fine for practicing and learning songs. you can still play along to your computer or cd player with an unplugged electric. obviously, if you want to play with other people an amp becomes necessary. pretty sure Roland and other companies offer small plug in preamp/adapters that basically allow you to plug your headphones into your guitar for practicing.


as for tuning what i meant was the actual mechanical ability of the instrument to stay in tune. as in, a straight neck, a solid bridge, and tight tuning pegs. RezZ is correct that a regular guitar tuner will work for acoustics, electrics and basses (though it can be a hassle to tune lower bass strings).

I didn't know this. That would be very useful. I'm always tethered to my amp for practicing, and it would be nice to have the freedom to practice anywhere without lugging the amp around yet still hear the electric sound.

I'd recommend a Yamaha acoustic or classical... since they're affordable and well made. Take a look around, there are many to pick from and they're all really good.
