I tend to agree with this.

Unless I am trying to do something very drastic to an acoustic guitar as an effect, an 1176 is not what I would choose.

I prefer a vintage Urei LA 3A or Teletronix LA 2A for acoustic guitar if it needs compression.

Retro 176 is also good for this.

On the cheaper side, a DBX 160 is another a viable option.

Not usually into an 1176 for acoustic guitar recording. Try a Fearn VT7!
