no way. its nice, but no way. here is the best acoustic ever:

12-string hamer acoustic/electric bass w/ a p-pup in the soundhole and a humbucker at the bridge. also has a large cutaway for access at the upper frets, rare for an acoustic.

That one on eBay does look very nice and I bet it sounds glorious but the Hamer 12 is outrageous! How's that thing tuned? EeeAaaDddGgg? That's crazy!

The Hamer does indeed have EMG pickups. Not a bad thing, I might add.

It's a Chaparral acoustic.

Nope. I'm not sure if he does, but it says in the booklet for Ten he uses a 12 string. So it's more of a guess...

If he's willing to use a standard one, then perhaps he'd use an acoustic one.

Check that out.

Not just that, but the website generally.

There's a few people who use one.
