Austin AU762 Reviews
Been playing guitar (acoustic mostly) for about 20+ years - started off with trumpet in the junior high school band, suddenly dawned on me in high school, trumpet players don't get laid...Dad was always a player (ala Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash styles)...sister played banjo, little brother discovered finger style (chet atkins) - so it was a natural transition...
Played with lots of local musicians in hometown of Oxford, Mississippi (great musicians there - 2 currently in Widespread Panic) - formed several acoustic acts to play around the Ole Miss campus in mid 90s...
best bands we had:
"oh brother..." (w/my bro) acoustic blues
"mobile home boys" (w/bro & xta) acoustic blues, bluegrass stomp
flash forward to today - just turned 42 yesterday, still playing, still enjoying it more than anything in the world - best damn "girlfriend" I've ever had and has outlasted all of the previous real ones.
Delta Blues - Son Thomas, Robert Johnson,etc
Old Country - Johnny Cash, Waylon/Willie
New County - Dwight Yoakum
Alt Country - Go to Blazes
Alt - Eels, Camper Van,
Classic - Floyd, Zep, Eagles, etc
love it all!!
Austin Guitars are filling a void that has long existed - classic guitar models with stunning finishes at rock-bottom prices. If someone you know wants a great entry-level electric, you can't go wrong with this line.Faulkner rated this unit on 2005-09-30.
