    Very nice. I’m debating buying one of those, a CEO 7, CEO 9 or Taylor 717 Builders Edition grand pacific.

    My one and only acoustic for the last 14 years or so is the Martin 000cxae ... The most comfortable acoustic I’ve ever played. The sound is terrific plugged in... A little thin unplugged because it is a smaller body guitar. But I’ll never get rid of this one. It is so easy to work with! Also to all those who think laminate materials don’t hold up... Martin did this one right! Never had a problem w it!

    Depends on the mood and the season. Have a few Taylor and a Takamine in rotation

    I've got a few, the Takamine EF-340 has been my gigging acoustic for most of four decades.

    My 000-28. It sounds good and has a small comfortable sized body. Also, it is the only acoustic I own. I have been playing a lot of country lately so I wish I could afford a D-18 or D-28 for that bassy boom when performing. The 000-28 would still be my goto at home and for fingerpicking if I could have one of those.

    I have 2. One Rosewood, and one Mahogany. The rosewood is a 1994 Larrivee L-09. I got it new in 1994. The Hog is an Eastman E10ss/v. I got the Eastman (all solid wood guitar) , as my arthritic hands have an easier time with the strings on a short scale dred.

    I have four acoustics;


    Epiphone EJ-160e

    Hondo H156

    Martin Dreadnought Jr.

    Yamaha FG-720s

    The Hondo gets played the most for several reasons. It's the first acoustic I bought many years ago and I'm very familiar with what it can do. It's like a D-18 copy, but it has maple back and sides, so its got a unique sound compared to my other guitars. Also, it's not fussy about humdity, so I keep it out of the case and it's an easy grab 'n go. If I had to keep just one of the four, this would be it by a longshot...

    Hey, what model is that?! I just wrote a love-letter to my H156, and then I see yours!

    I have two 28 series Martins. Much to my surprise, I grab the 12 string just a bit more often than the 6. Was not sure how much I'd play the 12 when I bought it 4 years ago.

    I added gold tuners to both, along with other modifications...

    The 12 is acoustic guitar mental therapy for me.

    Such a thick full sound to hear and feel.

    Well, my "go to" is gone. It didn't make the cut during the recent cull.

    I've never owned one. The sounds in my head are normally not acoustic. They really are their own separate type of instrument. I can strum some chords but thats about it. A friend of mine did have Hohner way back when that I actually did enjoy playing now and then but it disappeared in a NC pawn shop long ago. Now he has a Fender acoustic.

    I dont know why Fender bothers...
