Depeche Mode - Dream On - is it a real acoustic guitar or a virtual instrument?

Hi all,

YouTube

Do you think this acoustic western guitar is really a recorded one in a studio or is it a virtual instrument programmed / played via midi?

It's played soooo perfect.

Regards.

P.S.: There are so many subforums here I am sorry if this is the wrong one...

Hi,

It sounds real guitar to me.

AFAIK it's definitely a real acoustic played by Martin Gore. Whether he played it and looped it or sampled it and cut it together in Logic, I'm not sure.

AFAIK it was recorded in 2000 (though released in 2001) so I doubt there could have even been such a realistic virtual instrument at that time.
