    Washburn acoustics have always sounded really great to me. I have a $99 Washburn parlor guitar that is played very often.

    I work from home, and generally from the living room couch most of the day unless I'm actively recording - so these serve that position as well as all other positions.

    Heck, if I WERE, I might be able to HAVE PRS fiddles as "beaters" :confused:

    Yeah man. I have one. But like I said in the original post, it is a bit bulky for the "grab and go" kind of guitar though. Sounds and play great though. (cost me a bit more than 99 bucks, but it wasn't what I could call "pricey").

    My S2 Mira is my go-to guitar. Not only is she the one I've most bonded with, but she can get a solidly good tone for any style of music (and amazing tone for blues-rock, which is what I play most often).

    This. It's 31 years old and though it doesn't look it, it's beat up in spots that aren't visible. Enough that the monetary value in it is probably not much. But it sits next to my desk, I reach for it for everything. No question it's my number one and then some.

    Ha ha ha. I have a couple beaters both 97 ce22s.

    One is a black burst with dragon 1s rotary and trem. It has a big giant crack in the neck pocket that may or may not be "just the finish" but I love playing it. I'm always blown away by how good those pickups sound when the vol pot is rolled down bit.

    It has metal chrome pickup rings and I glued SS flat washers to the tops of the black speed knobs to keep the chrome look going. Kind of dumb but it is a beater!!

    The other is a hog ce22 trem rotary but with 5310s

    Both have holes in the top from a midi pickup. Previous owner.
