Got one of them hairs a few weeks back and started looking at affordable acoustics. Chose this one and Mr. Fed Ex brought her yesterday.
Epi EJ200

Lots of cool stuff goin on in this guitar...dual nano pickups, mono/stereo outputs, fantastic neck and assembly. A few tweaks will be needed but takin my time on it as i am not an acoustic dude. The best part is that it takes me out of my comfort zone and makes me learn/adapt to new things.

Shes a very large guitar...over 4 inches thick....and pretty loud unplugged. I'm going to start out with 11-52s ....

Acoustic players...gimme some tips!!!

Acoustic guitars need much more care.
You need to purchase and use a humidifying system. Then store your guitar in the case when it is not in use. Acoustic guitars require 45-50 percent humidity. If a guitar gets to dry. The top will sink, the top will crack, the bridge can lift off, braces can break, and more. This is not covered under any Manufacture Warranty.
I prefer the D'Addario 2 way humidifying system. These are a chemical packs that absorb/releases the proper amount of humidity into the guitar and case. They last about 6 months. Then you just purchase replacement packs.
I see hundreds, and hundreds of guitars in for humidity related repairs in a year. NONE of these are covered under warranty. These repairs pay my bills. LOL.
I and Taylor Guitars endorse the D'Addario system.
Just trying to help you out.

Oh. Take the desiccant pack out of the case. They will dry out and destroy guitars.

To address your set up question.
Take it to a good guitar tech, because acoustic guitars are a lot different than electric guitars, and more fragile. You can easily cost yourself a lot of money in repairs by trying to do it your self. It is a way different animal.

You may be correct Joe...glad I got the case.
But I suspect this one will sit on a stand within reach from 'command central' like the others.......built a couple patches in Scuffham software that really makes her sound big. ...maybe a clip this weekend....Merry Xmas brothers!!! :toast
