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
My primaty ones are a 2004 Gibson J-45 and a 2003 Martin HD-35. Have severals Guilds ('75 D25M+ '89 D25SB and 2003 JF-30), 2004 Martin 2004 000-16SGT, 98 Taylor 510 and a '98 Stelling RHD-125. Some lower level units too, but the J-45 and HD-35 get the most attention.
Hello...I play a 2004 martin D-42
I currently have a Martin D-18 Authentic that lister William Gray "gave" to me as I pay it off and a D-18GE. I was not looking to replace the GE since it is just a crushing guitar. William brought the Authentic to my teaching studio and I played 3 chords on it and said I want this guitar....that is all it took. I really didn't have to play anything more on the guitar. I am very hard to impress with guitars. I've played somewhere around a thousand or more guitars in my life and I've played about 50 great guitars and a bunch of nice guitars...this Authentic is very special and really needs to mature...probably had under 20 hrs of playing time on it when I got it. That kind of guitar crosses your lap every once in a while. It played favorable to Chuck Egner's '37 D-18 which is a great box. I've been lucky to play several prewars that are just to die for so I knew what this Authentic was saying to me...very articulate. My GE is only a step behind. So I'm totally set. I've played about 8 Authentics and I only like 2 and 2 more were nice and the others...hohum. Just my experience. YMMV...enjoy.
Oh by the way...I have 2 Bourgeois for sale....A great "D" slope and a very nice sounding Ricky Skaggs Signature Model....on of the original prototypes (#2). FYI
This is my first post
I play a Faith Patrick Eggle Standard 000 12fret
and awaiting a truss rod repair and neck reset my 1968 Harmony Sovereign Deluxe
I play two different guitars depending on the sound I want.
I have a 1997 Gibson Hummingbird that I like for it's rich mellow sound.
I recently bought a Greg Bennett Resonator. It has a bright ringing sound which projects well.
Two entirely different sounds.
