    Here's my recent herd.

    Not a family pic but how about Three Beaters on a Sofa.

    Left to Right: 1930s Oscar Schmidt-made Galiano Jumbo, ca. 1960 block letter logo Harmony Sovereign, and 1930s Schmidt Stella.

    I only have one "American-style" acoustic, the Taylor 414. Its my first "real" acoustic as defined by having real wood for the top, back, and sides. Just got it a month ago and it keeps getting better!

    My other "acoustic" is an 8 string Bouzouki I got in Greece circa 1994. Never really learned to play her as the hardcore Greeks can but she sounds great and looks pretty!

    Very cool thread. I'll join in with all acoustics (semi-hollows included) as of this morning >:)

    1998 Mark II (no name acoustic I guess, I know.nothing about it but UT was my first guitar)

    I have a bunch of guitars, including parts casters and builds but these are most of my favorites. I know some people don't like the Custom X because of the micarta but it rings like a bell!

    I've used same photo before. It's a 2009 OMS (14 fret 000, OM short) that was a major unexpected self-gift for reaching age 50. Fast forward 2009 - 2015, and now it's "the one" with other guitars gone.

    A current closeup would show darker top, and marks from use. It's a high end guitar, I don't abuse it, but it's my one acoustic now so it will travel and go to public jams.

    I love the settled feeling of the one or my guitar and no other shopping since 2009. It makes other nice guitars look like good examples of yoga pants in the grocery store.

    I play acoustic as much as I play electric. I might play acoustic more.

    I'll start with oddballs....

    These are my two that get most regular play. The one on the right is a Fylde custom made Single Malt - based on the Goodfellow model with a big, V neck profile copied from my 1939 Gibson L00. All of the woods are reclaimed timbers from the liquor trade, whiskey and rum casks made from Oak and Pine. It sounds incredible, every bit as good as it looks. The guitar on the left I built myself a few years back, an update on the early Gibson L1 flattop with Alpine Spruce top and Amazaque back and sides.

    [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    The second pair are old Gibsons, a 1926 L1 and a 1929 TG1. The L1 is from I think the earliest batch with Mahogany back and sides, and has H bracing that gives it a bright voice with very quick attack, but sweeter than a ladder braced guitat. The TG1 is one of the earliest X braced Gibsons and built like a feather.

    [​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    The last two, at least that I have photos to hand for, are a 1936 Martin 017, and an antique Romantic classical guitar. I'm much more of a Gibson guy than a Martin one, but I love the all Mahogany Martins and this one was a 30th birthday present from my Dad so has a lot of sentimental value. The Romantic guitar is a lovely little thing, unfortunately unlabelled but it's from around 1860 and made in Austria or south Germany. It's Brazilian Rosewood veneered onto Spruce, and X braced although very different to the Martin style X with transverse braces either side of the soundhole and the X under the bridge. Sounds nice, very sweet and delicate compared to a modern classical.

    [​IMG]

    I have a few others: a '39 Gibson L00, '69 Guild F212, '46 Epiphone Blackstone and a replica of an 1820s Staufer, but will have to add those another time.

    Sorry for the crappy picture, but from back-to-front I have Yamaha's, an L-7s and two FG-300s. The second row is my Martin 000-28EC and OM-Custom. In front is my Dynamic classical and my Fender uke with Tele headstock.

    [​IMG]

    Guess which one sounds the best? The FG-300 without a pickguard; the furthest-right guitar.

    For a long time, while my kids were growing up, I played only acoustic - and only one. It was a Goya, made in Sweden, nor great, not bad. I played that guitar for about 26 years. My daughter has it now.
    In 1997, my daughter got me that little Martin you see in the picture. It's a fine guitar. The Gibson is the workhorse, ended up using it for every gig in a band I played in for 12 years. In the back, a 2x12 Blues DeVille from 1996.
    ...oops, forgot - since I split my time between Houston and Austin, I keep one acoustic up in Austin - a Takamine, which is not really inspiring as an acoustic, but works fine for gigs. And a WWII era archtop - Kalamazoo/Recording King Frankenstein.
    Some good stories - I hope to pass them on to my two grandchildren.

    I like this game.

    Here I am playing my '76 Gallagher G-70 with mandolinist Roland White.

    [​IMG]

    That Gallagher is a fine guitar. Each and every note "Rings like a bell."

    Sound guys are always gushing over it.

    About 10 years ago I had the neck reset and refretted.

    Playing with Mr. White is always fun. He has a eclectic catalog of songs.

    About the arm rest...IMNSHO they are the single most effective way to make the sound of an acoustic guitar "better".

    A fellow I know ;) once had all of these at his house...

    [​IMG]

    from left...GA-70, G-70, G-70M, Doc Watson, G-45, A-70, GC-70

    The peghead and pickguard sort of give away their manufacturer. ;)

    ^^^^^^^^^^
    ...a person might conclude that you liked having a "G" on the headstock. Never heard anything but good words about them. Haven't actually had a chance to play one - maybe that's cuz you had cornered the market! Fine looking guitars.
