Re: do you carry an acoustic Guitar?
I've had my Guild on board for a year now but I am mostly at the dock, no humidifiers though. It is built like a brick shithouse and I have had no issues so far. When I cast off for longer periods than a couple of weeks at a time I may look into one of those carbon fiber guitars. I played one that I really liked and it would be nice to have a good guitar that I felt I could just leave lying about. I also have a cheap Epiphone acoustic that is my beach/boat/camping ax and right now the truss rod needs some tweaking.
I keep a couple of electrics on board as well, but store them ashore when off cruising. Which brings up a question for you cruising types. Do people bring electrics and small amps or just acoustics? Are there many opportunities for jamming? Gigging?
