I have had the LX1 for over ten years and taken it everywhere. When I was shopping for a travel guitar the selection was the LX1 or the Taylor travel guitar (I don't remember what it was called but the neck was attached by two big screws through the fret board). The LX1 has aged nicely and the sound has improved with time. A small guitar the has always played nice and sounded good. I love it. It travels well and mine seems to like Silk & Steel Strings. A good travel companion.
I totally agree but I did notice that they tended to excel in finger picking as compared to strumming where they can muddy up abit.
Have had this for quite a while.
There's also a guitar-shaped-object that seems to be impossible to tune....
That looks fantastic.
It is a 1983 Landola (a Finnish brand). This model was usually made with mahogany neck, sides and back - but this one is birch. Spruce top, of course.
Clockwise from top left:
c.1910 Lyon & Healy, c.1920 Stromberg-Voisinet, 1931 National Triolian, 1929 National Triolian, 1929 National Triolian mandolin, 1936 National Style O, 1959 Harmony Sovereign, 1924 Gibson GB-4 banjo-guitar, c.1940-41 Slingerland Songster.
Yes, I like old stuff.
Here are my two. Martin OM-21 and Custom Shop D-18.
My number 3 acoustic, a 2011 Gibson J-185. I bought it to flip, but it's just so awesome and I got such a deal that It's not going anywhere -
That martin dread shape haunts my dreams, so beautiful
those slotted head parlours do things to me
Martin HD28 late seventies.
looks beautiful, what happened below the bridge?
As far as I know the first owner treated the guitar with extra heavy strings which resulted in making the bridge and the top go bad.I think the marks came with the rounding of the top just behind the bridge.I bought it cheap because of the poor cosmetic appeal-not mentioning the bridge falling off-I don't regret my modest investment cos it's been my #1 acoustic for fifteen years.
Any idea what the original owner was running on it? Honestly i love guitars that are a little banged up of the get go, people are more likely to really play them hard I think.
Taylor 416CE. I need to play it more.
