Ten years ago I discovered small bodied guitars so I'm not going to change now even if I'm on a desert island. It's a CJ165 for me.

Just my J45 and a Spotify playlist loaded with all Ralph McTells albums will do me just fine

How can it be a "desert" island if it's surrounded by water? Me and my old J45 would have some contemplating to do on that.

Even though we arguably own some of the best sound guitars ever built, I would have to choose our CA Legacy. It could take the heat and dry of the desert island, the rain and wind of hurricanes, AND it could be used as weapon against pirate attacks and as a boat paddle as well -- you know, in case you found a way to build a boat. Seems like the only obvious choice.

Never criticize a musician until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Then you will be a mile away and you will have his shoes.

That's the really hardcore definition of a 'beater' guitar😅

My maple j100xtra...love my j-45, but nothing sounds quite like the jumbo when it's capo'ed up to the 4th-6th frets. And I'll always bring a capo along on a three-hour tour (a three-hour tour...🛥⛵️🎶)...

It'd have to be my J45TV. So versatile.

Any J35, J 45, or LG2 from 1935 to 1950 will do.

, , , and suddenly on a Friday I meet a guy in a small palm-grove and he'll be called Friday, , , and it turns out he can play drums, sing and dance.

I'll hand him the Mart. then teach him a few chords and Friday will teach me to dance zancagoo.
We'll sing harmony, which he already knows, and after some sessions I'll hand him the Bird.


Really look forward to hear what he thinks after this M/G-A/B.
You just can't keep coincidences down. .
