    Hello, all!
    I'm pretty new to guitars and quite new to this forum, but I'm interested in getting into both.
    A little bit about me, I guess, would be a fitting introduction. My father owned a lot of guitars when I was growing up, but I never learned to play. By training, I'm more of a semi-professional gig-worthy cellist. By application, I'm a vocalist (I've actually been singing longer than I've been playing the cello, but I received more formal training as a cellist, so, yeah.)

    I've been trying to learn straight chordwork on my Yamaha pacifica 512, but it doesn't really have the sound I want. My friends tell me I should really be learning on an acoustic, but I'm fairly stubborn... mainly because I like the heavy distorted sound, which isn't all that great because of the crap pickups the Pacifica came with.

    Welcome! And it sounds like your friends might be trying to discourage your guitar playing! The quickest way to discourage ANYBODY from playing guitar--buy them a poor quality acoustic. :D

    The only acoustic I like to play, really, is my Rogue 12 string... and that's only when it's in tune!
