I play guitar, have been for about 3 or so years now. I play electric guitar, 12string acoustic, nylon classic acoustic and I also recently picked up mandolin.
I just love to experiment with playing different types of music. I imagine that I would get very bored if I only ever played one genre. I also like to experiment with different techniques. Recently I've been expanding my tapping technique and I've worked out a contrapuntal tapping guitar version of scott joplin's "The Entertainer". Before that, I worked out a dodgy version of bach's tocatta using tapping, which I have now improved.
The great thing about expanding your repotoire across many different styles of music is you can always borrow aspects from one genre and integrate them with another.
I posted a vid on youtube a while back of me playing the dodgy version of bachs toccata, heres a link.
It's not exactly faithful to the original but some people seemed to like it.
I play a squier strat. People can say what they like about them, but mine is smooth as. I think with squiers you can either get lucky or get some worthless piece of junk akin to an encore strat. The only problem I have with my strat is the factory pickups aren't very great sounding. I recently picked up a fernandes sustainer kit though, so when I've fitted it I'll not only have a much better sounding guitar, but it will also have infinite sustain when I want to!

- as it has been said, acoustic/electric depends on taste. I'm personally into metal so i obviously prefer electric guitars, but i fully acknowledge that acoustic guitars can do wholly different things. Just listen to Metallica's older stuff.
basically my opinion is, it's not a matter of acoustic OR electric, it's a matter of how you use them, either by themselves, or in symbiosis.
