After years of trying to play electric guitar and
lead... I now understand that I'm an acoustic
guitarist...

go figure...

I'm enjoying my Epi SST Studio, although it's a
little heavy.

Congrats Cinda. It also could just be a phase you are going through - lol. I know that one day I want to work on my acoustic and then I turn around and change my mind. So with that said....I just play guitar acoustic or electric, it doesn't matter. Have fun!

Is that the Chet Atkins model? The black beauty acoustic/electric?

with the star inlay on the 12th fret? I played one of those and instantly was impressed by the playability of it. Very nice guitar indeed!

Cinda!! I soo miss you! (Hugs) Glad you're still around and playing. :)

Nothing wrong with being more of a rhythm player or even an acoustic player. We all have to find our calling and from that, sometimes a little soul searching is in order.

The advice I give all my students is, "learn a bit of everything but don't be afraid to excel in a few things". We're all kinda known for something sooner or later, ya know? You just kinda fall into it without trying to plan it.

I started just wanting to play Jim Croce tunes on acoustic at campfire parties....got bit by the 80's bug thanks to EVH, and can't play a Jim Croce song to this day nor have I ever played at a camp fire party. LOL!! I never once wanted to play lead guitar let alone rock/metal. A few years go by, you start picking up on other things as well.

So now I'm doing classic rock, hard rock, metal, blues and pop. I'm perfectly happy with those styles and have really worked on them to where I feel confident that I can play with and for anyone. Some guys want to learn loads of stuff...that's cool too..but I'm happy being a 4-trick-pony. I have no desire to learn country, jazz or fusion...it's all about happiness and being right where you want to be. :)

I don't know how much it weighs, but it's a
chambered mahogany body and a mahogany neck... so I
would say it's as heavy as a Les Paul...

14 pounds? Wow, if you're playing that on stage that's gotta be like wearing a Buick! I don't think I could do that. I'm a lightweight, I like my Ibanez RG's and my Gibson SG for long nights. Even my Gretsch gets a little heavy after a few songs. Maybe I need to start working out! LOL
