hey everyone,
you all seem pretty cool, so i thought i'd join in the fun. (this is my first post here) i play mostly acoustic, and i absolutely LOVE Martins, in my opinion, they are the sound of heaven. i have a sigma plug-in, which is a little lower on the Martin price-scale, due to my college-budget. i also have an old ibanez that my dad gave to me, he bought it when he was a freshmen in college in 1970, and it still sounds great sittin around worshipping in a dorm room. for electrics, i'd have to go with epiphones. peace out my brothers!

I play the guitars I build. A mahogany/englemann spruce like Taylor's 512, but with the 900 series rosette inlay; a rosewood/cedar Ryan type guitar (ryanguitars.com), an a sitka spruce/rosewood Ryan in progress right now.

My electric is a Godin LGXT. I'd like a PRS 22 though, as well.

Thumbs up Hmm..

I have four. My favorite right now is an alvarez I got for my birthday. I have an Ovation that doesnt work right now, but since it was the first one I bought on my own, I kept it(any ideas on what I could do with it?), a freebe my kids are learning with, and an electric I bought back in jr(1970 that is), that was a simple little thing from Sears of all places. At the time it was just something to play with, Now I have found out what I actually have and have it set aside. Yes, I still have the case with the built in amp(Silvertone sold by Sears).

The nice thing is that none of them are real fancy. They play as well as I do. I upgraded as I got better. I think thats the best way to go. besides, there are a lot of really good sounding guitars that are not masterpieces, you should neve just pass one up because you dont know the name.

Hey folks!

Right now I'm playing a Silver Anniversary Alvarez acoustic (modified with an electric pickup). Saving up the Franklins to purchase a new Martin sometime this summer.

Peace.

My guitars

Reading these posts make me drool...

Mine are:
1. Applause (lower rage ovations) large oval back, with the clearest trebles and great action! My fav.

2. Admira classical (got it at a good deal of USD125)

3. "Pyramid" electric... a cheapo electric just to learn the ropes of electric guitaring (boy, there are LOTS of technique involved)

I think i'll stick to my applause... great acoustic guitar for worship! Thank God, all my guitars are given! I needed a guitar b4 a small concert i played in, and my dad suddenly got me the applause! Praise God, He knows what we need... and also what we want... (in my case, it would be a Taylor)

here's my list

Electric:

Hamer Duotone (import) : very versatile for our Praise and Worship team. Has dual humbuckers plus a piezo under the bridge. All switchable and blendable. Lotsa different tones. Main player.

1967 Gretsch Country Gentleman : Used to belong to my Dad. Could use a good restore but in pretty good condition considering the age. Great Jazz tone.

1967 Vox Hurricane: Again, used to belong to my Dad. Looks like the old Fender Mustangs. Has that 60's jangly twangly sound. Not too useful for me but cool to have around.

Electric/Acoustic:

Alvarez RD20C: Laminated top, but for the price, an electric/acoustic that has great action, good presence unplugged, and good sound plugged in. Not a Taylor, but I didn't pay for one either. This is what I take to our weekly life group to support our worship time.

Acoustic:

Scott 6 string : This is an old acoustic that is pretty much a sit in the corner beater.

Greco 6 string : campfire guitar (fuel that is).

Goya 12 string : OK 12 string. Sentimental value cause my wife bought it for me when we were dating.

Other:
Scott 5 string banjo: Haven't learned how to play this yet.

Scott mandolin: first thing I learned to play 20+ years ago.

I think that covers it. It looks like a lot but most of it was given to me so I didn't have to mortgage my house for them.

a fender acoustic. some model that i don't want to find out. but i'm itching for a larrivee D03E. our praise leader uses it and it sounds great. i'd get one with a venetian cutaway, but those cost too much for my college student budget. hopefully make my way up to a taylor.

Talking Carvin bass!!! and tak

I have a beautiful Carvin Blueburst Bass (LB70, 2000). Amazing thing. It's too bad i don't have as much passion for the bass then i do for guitar.

My guitar is a takamine EG-10C although my wish list consists of a Larivee.

I have an electric/acoustic Oscarschidmt by Washburn. The body is made of Swamp Ash. It has Grover keys and Kyser 12 gauge strings. It's awsome looking and sounding. I love it.
