    Still marveling at how many acoustics some of you guys have-- wow!

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

    Hey Buckocaster51..... can you explain? Conventional wisdom would actually (I think) be that it would make it sound a little worse/muted. Why/how does it make it sound 'better??'

    I've only got two, but I'm very happy with both of them, a Martin 000-18KS snd a 1945ish Gibson A-50 mandolin

    Here are two showing a bit of cultural bias:

    Two Matons. The upper ones is a '92 M-300, all laminate and good for fingerpicking, the lower one is a '99 cedar-topped M-225, good for slide.

    Since moving from a 2,00 sq ft home to a 600 sq ft condo, many of my guitars are stored at a buddies home. Can't do a 'FAMILY' portrait per se', but here are a few of my acoustics. 1978 Hohner HG-360R, Seagull S6CE, old no name OM, mini, Epi Masterbilt, Loutar (for my 'brother' Lou.

    Wow! Some nice gits. My personal collection is much more modest, but considered no less necessary.
    L-R Epiphone Biscuit; Silver Creek T-160; Crafter TA050; Martin LX1

    These are the ones I play most often, but there is a another group that I will try to get together later for a quick snap shot. Acoustics First Family.jpg

    If you have your arm on the lower bout as you're playing, part of it is also resting on the top. Your arm is then damping that 'corner' of the top.

    If you have an armrest that is mounted up over the top - i.e. not touching the top, but has space between it and the top, and your arm is on that, that section of the top is free to vibrate. It now has nothing in contact with it as it would if your arm was on it.

    Really have no want, need or desire for any other acoustics. Also have a '76 Takamine 'lawsuit' acoustic 12-string that's not pictured that sounds wonderful.

    LOL, someone might think you like Gibsons. Beautiful! I used to have Gibson Classical Guitar and wish I still had it. What year is yours?
    I just sold a Martin D28 because I wanted a slope shouldered Gibson to go with my J185. A Southern Jumbo limited edition is on it's way here. I would love to have a Hummingbird but I think the SJ is my last acoustic purchase.
