Thanks for all of the comments and the great discussion! I fully agree with the suggestion that Blues can be played on any guitar (It is in the heart/fingers). I have a wonderful Larrivee OM-50. That said, I am looking for a smaller guitar. It will be strictly for the blues. Something to sit back on the couch (or outside on the deck) and play some country blues. After the Gibson 'thump'. This gets me into the L1, L-00 or LG-2. Unfortunately I am in the boonies... not many guitars near me. I am just wondering about pros and cons. I am also wondering about a 12 vs 14 fretter.
