Too often, players are fixated on the tone of a guitar. While it's important to like how an acoustic guitar sounds, it's also important to love what you look at. When you include looks into your evaluation of a guitar, you're adding a whole other level of consideration. While it might not impact what your playing sounds like, looks actually have a HUGE impact on how you practice. That's why this episode is dedicated to the looks of a guitar! In addition to talking about aesthetics, I'll also give you a tour of my studio, answer a few questions, and tell you about the first time looks changed the way I looked for guitars.
Should your next guitar be vintage or a newer acoustic guitar? I've got a story that'll change your perspective on vintage instruments, some concerns for vintage guitars, and a review of a *new* guitar that'll turn heads... In today's Acoustic Tuesday at Home episode, I wanted to answer one question: are vintage or new acoustic guitars better? Ultimately, that led to lots of reflecting and few definitive conclusions. So, be sure to let me know in the comments whether you lean towards vintage or new guitars! But, this video is an excellent starting point to help you determine whether you like vintage or new acoustic guitars. To help you find your own pluses and minuses, I'll tell the story of the vintage guitar that changed the way I thought about guitars. Additionally, you'll get to hear a brand new Furch guitar as reviewed by Brendan from Heartbreaker Guitars in Las Vegas, NV! ★ What kind of guitar player are you? How should you practice?

Have you ever encountered a guitar that changed your relationship with someone — for better or for worse? My Martin D-41 Special did exactly that... In this episode of...well, it's not really Acoustic Tuesday. Instead, as my wife, Whitney, and I prepare for our baby boy, I'm going to be making Acoustic Tuesday at Home! It's a little cozier, a little more uncut, and a TON more fun! I'm also going to be working on a brand-new season of Acoustic Tuesday during this time — more details on that in the video! So, with all of that being said, I hope you enjoy the new show as I work to welcome my son into the world and bring to you an awesome new season of the Acoustic Tuesday Show!  ★ Request your invite to Tony's Acoustic Challenge today: https://tonypolecastro.com/★ All show notes and links: https://acousticlife.tv/atah1★ Get the show: https://tonypolecastro.com/get-acoustic-tuesday
