Thanks, Pastor. I've been a worship leader for a couple of years now and I love it. Playing acoustic is problematic for me, it causes numbness in my left hand. Hopefully, this will be the answer. What kind of strings do you use? I have Ernie Ball 11's on there now. Would it be a huge difference if I were to go lighter? I use 9's on my others...

Very nice...but what is it?

There are a lot of really nice ACs in this thread, but some of them I just can't figure out what they are from the pictures. It'd really help if you'all would give the build specs for those planning on getting an AC and trying to decide what wood/stain/color/etc. to get.

Thanks so much!!

Chuck, I use D'adario Phosphor bronze EJ26 11's, I tryed 10's for awhile but went back to 11's because they have a deeper low end and just sound better all the way around. The 10's made it easyer to play but not worth the sound difference IMHO. I use them on both my AC275 and AC375. I have to use thinline acoustics because my right hand goes numb from resting my arm on the large body, the AC375 is as big as I can play comfortably for more than 1/2 hour.
DocD, good Idea, but I think allot have posted them already with their NGD threads and is probably why they don't put specs on here.
I have mine in my signiture that way I don't have to repost them on different threads!!!
God bless, Pastor Dave

I hope this is not out of line but I thought it would be neat for Jason Becker's and now his dads pointy AC175's to be added to the club page. :mrgreen:



Jason's.

And his dad Gary's.

And my 2010 made AC175 pointy.

Lots of great looking Carvin acoustics in here. I especially love the RockCrue pointy.

Well, here's one more pic of my new AC-375 for the club. Bought from Guitars-in-Stock. Emerald Green transparent Engelmann spruce top, clear mahogany back and sides, gold hardware, stainless medium-jumbo frets, abalone inlays.

I love it.

I'm finally part of CLUB AC.
I've been wanting one for a long time and got this off eBay for a great price.
I love the neck. It's just right for me. Kinda between a standard and a classical neck.
Quilted maple top and headstock overlay.
Ruby red with black burst edges.
Gold hardware.
No fret markers.
It's about 13 years old and still plays great. Gonna need the frets dressed though.
Maybe one day I'll order a new one.

Nice! I actually saw that on eBay and was surprised at how cheap it was going for. I was looking for a used CL450 and almost got in on an auction. Anyway, I saw the 375 you got and I loved the color and finish. Congrats and enjoy! I was just playing mine a few minutes ago.
