I agree about spending the BIG money on acoustic guitars. That's what I play most of the time anyway [smile]


Acoustics are more skilled hand labor intensive and the wood has to be absolutely superior for a great sounding acoustic guitar. There's just no getting around it.

Are you familiar with Martin's Performing Artist Series? They are some the best sounding acoustics I've ever heard and played. I've been wanting a 12 string acoustic, and I'm trying to convince Martin to make a 12 string for this series since they recently put the J-40 12 Special on the inactive list. They responded very positively to the suggestion, so we'll see what happens. I know it will be an expensive one, but it will certainly be worth it.

You're most certainly welcome! :)

Like Les Pauls (especially in wine red), there can never be too many good folks on this forum. [thumbup]

Thankyou. Great to have people communicating with a common interest.

Attachment P1070429.JPGOk Guys managed to take some pics of the "boys".

Love them all. Those of you looking for a great value acoustic guitar would be very impressed with the Seagull S6 Original use it to Jam with fiends and the perfect guitar to throw in the back seat for a family picnic.(in the case of course)

The Martin D28 is exactly as defined by many a truly superb guitar.

The 60th Anniversary Tele has the Custom Shop Texas Specials fitted. I retained the original pickups incase I sell it (but doubt it) This thing rocks.

And of course last but by no means least my recently acquired Wine Red Classis Custom Les Paul. A beautifully finished guitar. The Photos don't do justice to

it as the finish is such a deep wine red almost 3d to look at and just love the Character Les Paul seam which is on all the vintage series I have seen.

I Love all my babies :)


The Family so far

My photos are not as large as the others above. Should increase pixel size when resizing them may help.

This maybe better

Well my LPCC came in this morning around 9:30, only on my 3rd cup of coffee. I unpacked it and cracked the case, not enough to see it, but so it could aclamate to the house temp.1hr later was all I could take, opened her up and WOW. Tuned her up and been playing since 10:30, quick coffee break and a smoke outside, then back to it. Post pix later.

Congratulations!!! [thumbup] [thumbup] [thumbup]

Very nice indeed. The maple top on the body looks like it has some excellent wood grain showing through!

Enjoy it, and I'll bet your fingertips are really feeling it by now. ;)

Nice looking Classic Custom! [thumbup] So many of you all, have such
massive amps (Stacks, and 1/2 Stacks) in your bedrooms. You must have
very understanding parents, spouses/children, and/or neighbors? [biggrin]

But, "Been there, done that," so I understand. [smile]

Your wife's gesture is universal. Mine did the same thing when I was taking photos of the guitars yesterday [biggrin]

Nice pic. Definitely showing some creativity there but I know if it was me I would probably drop the guitar face down onto the lawn. [scared]

LOL. I was actually on my neighbor's side of the fence and he trying to grow grass. I was concerned the lawn sprinklers were going to kick on. :rolleyes:

I'm really gassing for a new guitar right now. If these are still available when I get the money together, I'll snap one up. I had been eyeing the natural finish, but the likes of newwt and Lesspaul are swaying me to wine red. Always wanted one of those too. I should mention that I'd ideally buy the secondhand aged white lp 68RI custom that I've been perving over recently, but I've a feeling that'll be long gone. [crying]
Have cut back on my equipment do to circumstance. Just my #1 Gibson Les Paul Standard just now. No amps, no pedals.

As much as I'd love to, it'll be a few months before I get to have a new guitar day. [crying] Just got married recently, so money is a little tight right now. My wife did offer to buy me a guitar about a month ago though, but I'll wait until I have the money myself.
