    I have two acoustic guitars along with a slew of electrics. I have chosen to part with one of them. Having a miserable time deciding which one to part with.

    Takemine AN10 all solid wood with a cedar top 9.5 of 10 condition

    Taylor 214ce Dlx with Koa back and sides.

    Problem is I really like both of them for different reasons.

    Would be a tough call but only you can choose one. If it were me, I would be the proud owner of both of them.

    Keep the Taylor. I had the 214 dlx and it was a sweet guitar.

    I was going to say keep the Taylor. Definitely the Taylor. But, then I saw that the takamine was all solid. The Taylor has "layered" back and sides. Theoretically, the takamine has more potential to improve with age. So that would favor keeping the takamine. But that Taylor is a great guitar.

    I'm with Guitarmageddon, sell them both and get something else. (GAS?)
    If you're even thinking about letting it go, it's gone.

    Thanks for all the help to everyone. Why get rid of one? Well I have a mental limit of guitars, that is twenty. Unlike my bride with her addiction to purses I really am trying to stay within reason. Truth is I seem to be in a collecting mode almost as much as I enjoy playing them. Love all the different colors and shapes and sounds.

    That being said, I have a really neat Gibson explorer on layaway at GC and I believed that would have been number 21.... To my surprise had them all out over the weekend and found I miscounted. The new (used) Explorer will be number twenty so I no longer have to part with one.

    I do utilize my electrics way more than any acoustic I have or played. So when one has to go, it really should be one of those. I can just hope no GAS for the foreseeable future... Good luck with that.

    So my upcoming NGD explorer has a flamed maple top, antique color binding on the body and neck, just good looking. Now I am not parting with another guitar, it will add on a couple of weeks before I can bring it home. I can wait.

    GAS is a terrible affliction.
