The Jazzmaster would be largely for the nostalgia value that my first electric guitar was a Jazzmaster. That one didn't have P-90s, though they did already exist back then, and if it did have them they would have been lost on me. As it was that guitar was probably more guitar than a brand new guitar player deserved. I ended up working out a swap deal for a Telecaster 4 years later, much to my parent's dismay that I traded away a 4 year old Christmas gift. Yeah, I grew up in THAT environment....

Okay the dust has settled and I decided on this. Found it on Reverb.



Decided to go with a genuine Fender. It was a bit more than the Benton would have been, but this was what I originally set out to find anyway. So now I wait for it to arrive. As impatient as I am, as soon as I clicked the buy button I took a chair and went out to sit on the front porch to wait for it to arrive!!

MarioD, I'll third you on the Les Paul being uncomfortable, and generally most Gibson-style guitars. Definitely more of a Strat guy myself, although I primarily play Jackson and Ibanez guitars - Ibanez makes the best semi-hollow I've ever played, and Jackson tends to be lightweight which is great for my failing back!

I still say the most comfortable acoustic I've ever played was the Taylor GS Mini (and really most Taylor guitars), with a very close second being a Larrivee OM-03 with a 12-fret neck joint. In my price range, anything from Godin fits the bill. Take a look at the Godin A6 Ultra - great (plugged in) acoustic sound from an electric-sized body.

Nice! I have the telecaster version of that guitar, the "telecoustic". Idk that I'd call it a "genuine fender" though LOL. I mean.. it is but its made in China and no better or worse than a squire or a Benton would be in build quality or sound. Still a solid guitar though. You should check out this list of guitars https://www.guitarlobby.com/best-beginner-electric-guitars/
For semi-hollow guitars I usually recommend Gretsch. EXCELLENT value, owned by fender now so imo its every bit as genuine of a fender as anything foreign stamped with a Fender logo. D'angelico makes some pretty great semi-hollows as well.

Double0,

Welcome to the forum!

One small correction if I may. Gretsch Guitars is a family owned company. Fender handles distribution duties for Gretsch. You can learn more about the ownership +++ HERE +++ .

PG Music News
Customers LOVE Band-in-a-Box® 2021!

Check out some of the latest Band-in-a-Box® feedback we've received:

"There's a saying 'Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.' That's exactly what my friend did in 1990. He taught me how to use BIAB and I've used it hundreds of time to do arraignment and to jam with any style band."

"Love BIAB. I use it daily. Their support is great too!"

"RealTracks are amazing!!! I use BIAB for backtracks in my solo act... Still using the basic package and it's all need..."

"I have used Band in A Box for many years. If it would have been around when I was young, I would have been a much better musician. I use it for all my songs I have written and recorded. With Band In A Box I can sit in my room and sound like a whole band without having to put up with them!"

"If you know something about music and take the time to learn the program, you can make it do some amazing things. It is a great help to songwriters who want to demo their song without paying for studio time. It makes changes and tweaks much easier as well."

"Been using it for so many years. It's a great tool. The instruments that I don't have or play make up the void and it saves so much time. I use this program for every song I write."

"Great tool for the songwriter!"

"An essential part of my studio! I write songs on piano, but I'm not a pianist by a long way. BIAB is like having a roomful of session players in your studio, and just the simple act of taking your basic idea and hearing a skilled pianist play it presents so many new ideas and options you hadn't thought of."

"Powerful, easy to use, inexpensive and they even split the modest payments up if you want. No complaints. Lots of satisfaction."

"I added a steel guitar to a fully produced original. He followed every change like he was in the studio reading the chart. Fascinating technology!"

"I have used it to make backing tracks for six CD's with about 12 songs on each. They make a great gift!"

"It's simply a necessity - buy it now - the staff and support do a great job as well!"

"A great tool for us songwriters!"

"I LOVE Band-in-a-Box!"

"I see it as a very worthwhile investment. In fact, from initial purchase about 8 years ago, using the backing tracks I have made, my income from that investment has returned over 5,000% on the investment!"

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
