My new OM21 Sunburst
Here are mine: 2003 Gibson J-185, 2004 Martin D-28, Taylor NS-24, Taylor 150e 12 String
Rose and good ole duct tape
I took the day off of building the house and made it a complete guitar day including pics. My acoustic family: Eastman E10P and Epi EL-00 Pro. Searching for a reso to complete the bluesy trifecta.
Love the blues!
From L to R: Yamaha LL16, Guild F-30, Alvarez/Yairi DY50, Seagull S12, and the wife's Seagull S6 Folk. Just visible in the bottom right corner is my Epiphone Hound Dog Dobro.
Here are my ladies.... Still waiting for the blonde j100 12-string to be delivered
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.
A few more: Harmony H-59, 1982 Larrivee L09, 100 yr old 'Winthrop' Terz, Wiesenborn-ish,
Here is the family!

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.
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.
Alright, finally got a picture of my acoustic family:
Left: Gibson J-29 Elite Center: Larrivee OM03 Walnut Right: Alvarez AP70 Parlor
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.
. J45 au natural
My Ovation family. I also have a Takamine Classical and a Baby Taylor
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.
