Stopped in at C and M music in NOLA today while delivering strawberries. The owner was in and we got to chatting. He let me play this 1927 Martin 000-18... And hold a 1954 Stratocaster... And hold a 1952 Gold Top Les Paul. The little Martin was very dry and slightly boxy sounding. It had nice dynamics. I just fingerpicked it a bit so not a real assessment for sure. I did not play, nor ask to play, the electric guitars but the vibe of the strat was unlike any guitar I have ever held. The gold top felt rudimentary. The trapeze bridge doesn’t seem to be very functional. Anyway , It was a good day.
