I used to quite like acoustic. I often buy Guitarist.

They're all okay as long as you accept them for what they are. Basically they are the tools of the music industry. So - you tend to get reviews of the record companies, instrument companies etc who are advertising in them.

I like to read about new products, but you get to an age - and then you start wondering.....why am I doing this. Paying for my competitors to promote themselves. Let Bob dylan and his mates pay for their own publicity.....paying for the opinions of people who don't seem to know as much as I do.

Very disconcerting, was once reading the exact review of a guitar, I had written on a website - word for word - and seeing some journalist had set his name to it.
