    What do you take with you on vacation, durable, not too "risky", but playable, good sounding? Here's mine (for this year, anyway), a lam-top Takamine C-128 nylon string.

    I have a Johnson metal, round-neck reso. It was a closeout at $150, and it's not bad at all.

    LoL

    That's what I have too. you got a hell of a deal for 150 though. wow.
    "not bad at all" is an under_statement if ever there was one.
    I had to schlepp it around to a recording date when it was 38°C hot and it is darn heavy - but it sounded brilliant.

    Usually when going on vacation I tend to walk into a local store of the place I'm going to and buy the cheapest thing they have.

    I also tend to sell those on pretty quickly too.

    My Composite Acoustics GX. All graphite - impervious to heat, cold, rain, humidity... . In fact, I transport it in my rooftop carrier when I travel, all four seasons of the year.

    Just recently bought a replacement for my worn out Fender Malibu. An Epi EL-00 for $200. Okay, I've already added a Tusq saddle and Tusq bridge pins.

    On it's maiden sojourn next week to the Oregon coast, hopefully to play around a campfire on the beach for my cousins. Maybe some jammin' with other relatives at the family reunion. I can hardly wait!

    Been about everything but a friend just gave me this pic from 20 years back, was a '65 Hummingbird that night. ImageUploadedByTDPRI1436761452.754197.jpg
    Others included a '52 J-50, '53 LG-2, '53 00-17 and lately this '52 J-45. I learned the hard way not to play newer guitars on cold nights by a campfire. ImageUploadedByTDPRI1436761604.607458.jpg

    It used to be an old Alvarez nylon string but I don't have that one any longer. My Taylor is pretty much like my former bride and not a lover of the great outdoors. Backyard BBQs are fine but backpacking.......no.

    I won't buy any old junky guitar just to have a "beater" so one of these days I'll find a deal of the century kind of thing at some garage sale or in a pawn shop and I'll have that "beach guitar" base covered again.
