What are some albums that feature fast and virtuosic acoustic guitar playing/shredding? For example, I really like a lot of the Candyrat guitarists (Ewan Dobson, Gareth Pearson), and most recently I really enjoyed Paul Gilbert's Acoustic Samurai album. I also know that Van Halen and Yngwie Malmsteen have done some acoustic shredding. Any really good ones you could recommend?

I don't know anything about acoustic guitars, and I'm trying to buy one as a gift for someone. I know that this is an intensely personal purchase and most would recommend against this, but I'm going to do it regardless... With that being said, I would like some recommendations as to what kind of acoustic guitar I should buy. The giftee is a bass player. He has mentioned wanting something with a rich, deep, darker sound, something with heavy strings. Under $1000, please.

My brother would like to do some recording (acoustic guitar mainly, maybe other things) at home and is looking for recording software for OS X. The ideal price would be $500 or under, but it should be something decent rather than just cheap. He "doesn't need pre-recorded loops, etc, so [he] figure[s] GarageBand isn't what [he's] looking for." Any recommendations? [more inside]
