Whether it’s space travel or sustainable tonewood forests, I know the future of the acoustic guitar is bright. In this episode, I’ll walk you through 5 HUGE reasons why the acoustic guitar is the chosen instrument of the future.
This entire episode is dedicated to the future of the acoustic guitar. Specifically, why the acoustic guitar will be the champion instrument in the near and distant future.
In addition, you’ll hear about two guitars that I think are definitely guitars of the future. One of them is a Lowden Guitars’ F50, which is truly futuristic because of the innovative tonewood combinations used on this guitar. In addition, I’ll give you a review of the Fender Acoustasonic guitar, an instrument that has received a TON of hype…but is it worth it?
Last but not least, you’ll get the chance to listen to a friend of mine who went viral a couple months ago. His videos include him playing a Weissenborn guitar across the wilds of Montana. His name? Dan Dubuque .

Fender Acoustasonic guitar sounded a lot like a Telecaster.
I lust after a Shanti Guitar made by Michael Hornick in Missoula.

Hea Tony, short show, and what happened to the rest of your guitarsenal ?
Hello Tony! Congratulations on another fantastic Acoustic Tuesday Show. You asked it there were any other reasons why the acoustic guitar is the instrument of the future. While I did not hear it in your list (my apologies if it was) you certainly presented it your show. In my view the acoustic guitar is perfect for the future because it also provides tremendous psychological support by providing a way to center ourselves in chaos like space or our shared human condition, which keeps trying to get more complicated. Two-cents :)!
Carbon-fiber guitars are not new. They have been popular in very humid areas, such as Hawaii. But the ART of carbon-fiber manufacture for tone is new to me. I love the possibilities. I’ve known people to strap a new guitar on to their Harley, and take a trip, to ‘season’ the wood. I still fear the C-F will not age as well as a ’57 Martin. That has been played, of course. Doesn’t do it or you any good sitting in a closet.
I really enjoy each and every acoustic Tuesday what a pleasure, getting some valuable information on my own journy, with my first guitar an ibanes
Aw54ce- 0pen 0pn. Cutawy you might be interested to give it a peak, very proud playing it as much as I can. Stay cool looking, and deticated for all who play the guitar, your gem to represent all.
PS I WIIL BE 63 YEARS YOUNG THIS YEAR
The future of acoustic guitars starts with Yamaha’s Transacoustic Guitars. Reverb and Chorus without an amplifier. One word, Amazing!
Tony, What do you know about Marshall & Marr Guitars? Thanks, Elden
very interesting to see your review of the Fender Acoustasonic. I tend to practice really late at night and tend to use my electrics more than my acoustic just because of the volume. I have not yet seen one of these here yet and have been tempted to order one but before I did I wanted to hear a review from someone more into acoustic guitars.
