For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine
Hey everyone, I would like to perform a simple survey of all that will reply to this. I am very curious what brand and model of guitar is the most popular among the flatpickers here. There are thousands of members here so it will be great information for someone trying to decide on a "friend". So lets have it flatpickers, what do you play?
I will start;
I play a McPherson MG 4.5 with bearclaw sitka spruce top and indian rosewood b&s
Sorry to take so much time in replying. I've seen the Taylor Dan Crary signature model, and was very impressed with it's sound. Every flatpicker should listen to Dan Crary - his tone and musicianship is outstanding. I suspect that only a handful of this model came into the U.K., and they are not easy to find. I particulary liked the design of the cutaway. I've read that some luthiers don't think a cutaway affects a guitar's sound too much, as most of the sound is created in the lower bout, and little is lost by having a cutaway. It's interesting to note that Taylor have introduced a dreadnought model with a depth of 4 and 7/8 inches to empasise the bass. Perhaps more will be seen at Bluegrass festivals.
