My 2004 Martin OM-28V and my 1987 D-28
One more to add now... (please...someone buy my 614ce)....
New to me.
Dang that looks beautiful.
Martin OM 28 Marquis Madagascar. Very limited run in 2006/2007 (supposedly as low as 110 instruments). Adirondack spruce top, Madagascar rosewood sides and back, ebony fretboard, fossilized bone nut and saddle.
Not helping my want for a Martin.
My Larrivee L-42 12 string, made in Victoria, BC in 1981. It has a rich and deep voice, maintains its tune very well, and is a joy to play.
AND it has dragons! Awesome!
My cedar top mahogany back and sides concert series Breedlove. I have thought about trading it in our selling it for s different one several times but it is just so warm sounding and feeling that I just can't.
My 40 year old. Nothing plays like her. I have had her longer than my marriage.
Honestly to me acoustic guitars just look plain Jane. Don't get me wrong I love my acoustic guitars but yours is absolutely beautiful....
My most recent thrift store find, a early 70's Epiphone FT-130 Caballero with original case for $24. It was very dirty and grimy and had a collapsed neck and missing saddle. Most 70's MIJ Epiphone acoustics have a bolt-on neck so it was relatively easy to reset and reinforce the neck. The neck block on these guitars wasn't designed right and collapse is something you'll see often in them. After fixing up the neck, I cut a new bone saddle from a blank I had and it was ready to play again.
Another MIJ thrift store find from a few years ago, a 70's Hohner Contessa classical. It also required a bit of work to get it back into playing shape.
I have played the same acoustic for 40 years. It is a Conn F-25, which was made in 1972 and given to me second-hand as a Christmas present in 1978 when I was 13 years old. I have played it consistently ever since. In all these years I have never seen another Conn guitar. Obviously there are better guitars out there, but over the decades most of the guitars I have played sound worse. This guitar has a laminated spruce top, rosewood back and sides, solid rosewood fingerboard, rosewood bridge, and it has a nice warm full sound. It has great action, (and literally the smallest frets I have ever seen). I have never felt the need to upgrade. But I must admit I am checking out a Martin D-1 this weekend, from CL.
Ohhhhh, my kinda tread! Some tasty guitars on here!
Here’s a couple pictures of group shots that I ripped from my instagram, apologies if some guitars appear twice. I buy and sell quite a lot, so there’s a couple of things here that have moved on to new homes, and there’s a few things on racks or in cases upstairs that I don’t have pictures of to hand!
I just purchased an epiphone dr100 for $89 bux brand new. After an hour or so adjusting the truss rod and sanding down the bridge saddle, it plays like a dream now. I now have an acoustic that I can toss around the house without having to worry about humidity in that room and all that other upkeep.
My beautiful Martin I had to sell a while back
I bought some new acoustic strings yesterday for my guitars...I put some wonderful John Pearse nickel-wound strings on my dread, and some standard Martin Retros on my parlor. I can't believe how great those John Pearse strings are! I got chills when doing a few scales and chords while getting everything dialed in.
Epiphone Masterbilt DR500MCE. Two.
I need to make up a nickname for these guitars and inlay it into the fretboards like the old country music dudes.
Finally! I can join the club:
My new Taylor. I can't say enough good things about it, I love playing it and haven't set it down since I got it! Makes for difficult times driving.
