Is Tracy Chapman's guitar in this video
(best shots are in the first 10 seconds) a custom jobbie, or is an acoustic with electric pickups a thing that can be bought off the rack? [more inside]

Planning a birthday present for my daughter, who will be 5 soon. She's been interested in guitars, and I'd love to get her one to mess around on. Ideally it would be small, not too expensive, but good enough to feel 'real'. I don't know much about guitars. What's a good one to buy? Is there an online outlet for such things you would recommend?

Dear home recorders - in your experience(s), can an acoustic/electric hybrid guitar ever sound as good as a properly mic'ed acoustic guitar, given guitars of comparable quality/price?

I have developed an unhealthy obsession with Juno, Swervedriver, The Appleseed Cast, Compound Red and Art of Fighting. What other bands would you suggest in the same vein?

I want to treat myself to a guitar. It's for fun, to play for my own benefit and to do a bit of home recording on my iBook. I don't have any grand plans to play live or join a band. But I'm racked with indecision about what kind of guitar to buy - should I go for an acoustic, a semi-acoustic, or an electro-acoustic? [MI] [more inside]

What electric guitar should I buy? I currently have a dreadful Encore (£60 second hand) and need advice on a second guitar. Budget: £300 - £500. Music style: tech/math rock. Skill level: been playing for two months, practice two hours a day. I need advice on: makes and models, where to buy from, whether to buy new or used. I don't care about name-brands - I just want something good.
