I have 3 acoustic guitars as well. None of them worth mentioning. They were all purchased at GoodWill for under 10 dollars.

Current Main guitar:
1965 Fender Mustang (Oct 65 Neck date, 'B' neck width)
 

11 gauge strings (w/ extra heavy pick)
Stock neck pickup, Seymour Duncan Cool Rails mini humbucker in the bridge. Neck pickup soon to be replaced with another mini humbucker. Stock pickup sounds like shit. Never use it. Bridge pickup switch taped to on position.
Rosewood fretboard. Recently sanded some bad overspray job off the back of the neck with steel wool. Much smoother now.
Recently refinished from Surf Green-ish color so silver/metallic. I did a bad job, and it already looks reliced after two weeks. The paint is coming off everywhere. I'll refinish it sometime with better paint.
I took the volume knob off since I always hit it when I'm strumming.
Purchased for $300 from the singer in my old band.

Fender stratocaster, chinese.
Standard start setup (pickups n knobs, no surprises)
red body, a bit dinged up
3-ply black pickguard
Stickers- two threadless heart stickers by bridge, pink vinyl, wild n wolly video,... on back a sticker for the like... whom i don't actually like)
Sharpie markings- above pickguard i wrote "LIEBE" in silver. Xed out 1-9 on volume., colored middle pickup black n red, wrote imposter next to 'fender' on head because i thought it was bootleg (also scratched off fender with my keys). Wrote "play more good music please..." on back of head.
(it's an old pick so none of this is shown)

I have one of these in Tiger Eye. The guitar, not the girl. Unmodified because I don't have the money to waste on that if I don't play it live.

Also a Takamine GS330 Cedar and an obscure 70's classical with 5 strings.

Look? It's a guitar. I play blues, and it's an excellent blues guitar. Makes no difference to me what scene it falls into under scenster glasses. Pity everyone wears 'um, though.

It just seems odd to have such a grand vegasmeister such as that to play blues. No offence or anything. :]

The main reason I particularly picked that one was because I found it at a store that was having a blowout sale the next week, and doing my research, $200 off it was by far the best value I would be able to find for what I needed.

Wow, that's pretty cool. I usually peruse ebay for stupid people who post great guitars for cheap, not knowing what they are. Its how I got my Jazz.

Heh ya I should've done that. I got my Takamine for $300 new, and found it on eBay for near $50 used. Eh, oh well.

there was this one guitar that had a similar shape, but it was made by Stagg

Yeah, they're harder to find in regular music stores, but online they're easy to find.
