does this work well with an acoustic guitar ?
i noticed in the specs that it said designed for electric guitar and i wanted to make sure before i bought that it actually works well with an acoustic.

This does work well with my Gibson acoustic/electric. As far as a plain acoustic I'm sure you could get a mic cable with a 1/4 inch end and use it to record the acoustic. However a previous response said that this was not meant for mic's and/or vocals. But in my opinion I don't see why this wouldn't work.

If you have a Mac and you want to record on Garageband, etc., getting something a couple bucks more, such as the Apogee One USB Interface, which has an XLR Mic input and a 1/4 input. I believe that this product is $199.99. Apogee also has more expensive Mac recording products. :)

it works flawlessly with my yamaha acoustic guitar, btw i am not using the built in Yamaha active pickups instead i used a passive pickup. hesitant at first, but it works like a charm as there is a gain adjustments on the jam

don't see any reason why it would not work with an acoustic. As far as I can make out it just requires a pick up on a guitar or bass.
