Well, I've found that some acoustic guitars just won't resonate so much, 
though my experience is limited.  I remember a Farrington that a friend 
once on a gig, he borrowed my e-Bow and couldn't make it do nuthin 
For some reason the Oscar Schmidt acoustic I've got sings like a mo-fo 
e-Bow... so I am inclined to think, YES there is a physical relationship 
between e-Bow use and the ability of a guitar to resonate.  Damn, wish I 
the money to experiment with THAT: One acoustic-electric, e-Bow and a 
Fathead.  Hmm..

Those on the list about to pursue this inspired line of experimentation 
therefore required to report to us all! :)

(off for now, I've got the final parts for my new PCs!  Let the building 
commence!  Details later.)
