My Landola made Peavey SD-11p. I fell madly in love with it the very first time I picked it up. It is the guitar that I always want to come back and play. I never take it to gigs where I have to plug in because it doesn't have electronics and nobody makes a passive pickup that fits in the sound hole. Acoustically I would pit it against most modern Martins (1980's-present) and happily pick mine...believe me I have done it several times. I've even had offers for it because of the sound. This is the guitar that inspires me to write songs and try new things...I shudder to think of what will happen to it when I need to have the frets replaced. 26-27 years is getting kind of up there for nickel frets on an acoustic that was well played before I got it. At the risk of sounding sacrilegious this is my Herringbone Martin...unless of course I actually get to play an original Herringbone...I assume its glorious...Never been in the same building as one. But until that day, this is it...and honestly It will probably still be after unless that Herringbone is truly spectacular and cost less than the price of a three story house.
