Here's mine...I'm a Gibson man. SJ-200 and L7-C Custom Shop. I enjoy playing them both equally.
In almost nine years on this site, I've never posted a pic. I have no idea how, and no real interest in learning. I don't even know how'd I'd get pics off my camera onto my computer. I am 100% primitive. I can't even get this forum to do the split quote thing like you just did. I can do the very basics of operating e-mail, this site, and my Facebook page. That's about it. The only reason I have e-mail and a Facebook page is pretty much to promote gigs.
There are tons of pics on my Facebook page of me playing the Custom (and TONS of other tasty guitars) but I didn't put them there. People put them up and then "tag" me as I understand it.
I will go over and check out the Tak owner's club, thanks for the heads-up!
1950's Hofner - Mother of Toilet seat inlay...
2011 Martin D28. Had it about 7 months now and its really starting to talk!
I have a few, and they're each my favorite when I'm playing them. This is my Collings OM2hsb next to a Fender "Mandocaster" and a 60's reissue Tele Custom. Love the Collings!
Well, believe it or not, I relate. I've often said that I was dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. I too have a Facebook page, but I check in on it maybe twice a year. My wife signed me up/registered (?) me on FB, pretty much against my will. I do email almost exclusively.
I guarantee you that what I do here on TDPRI (the "split quote" thing, posting pics) is simple, otherwise I couldn't do it. But then again you did say that you have "no real interest in learning," so I won't try to twist your arm. Suffice it to say that help for learning these tasks is available if you're ever interested.
In the meantime, I sought out some pics of a Takamine ESN10C on the Internet, thought I'd post 'em here, since this thread started out with an emphasis on "seeing" people's favorite acoustics.
Does yours have the strap button in that position on the underside of the neck? If so, does that ever get in your way?
Man, I like those sapele back & sides. And that pinless bridge, with the split saddle and the beautiful rosewood.
i played one at a local shop about a week ago.. can't get it out of my mind
Thanks for the pics! Looks exactly like mine. Yes, that's where my strap button is. It came that way from the factory this time, but that is where I have always put them anyhow when I do it myself. I find it's a great location, that makes for a very stable strapping, and it does not get in the way. I've never even noticed it when I'm playing, even when getting around above the twelfth fret.
The pinless bridge makes me nervous, though I don't know why. I've owned several Taks set up that way, and they've all been great. It just seems weird to me, but does look super clean and sexy. One of my favorite things about Taks has always been those split saddles. Excellent intonation.
This one was a beast out of the box. All I did was give the truss rod the very slightest tweak, and take about 1/32" off the bottoms of those saddles, and it plays slicker than greased crisco. Stays in tune great, and even sounds very nice unplugged.
I really like pinless bridges. Both of my acoustic/electrics have 'em.
One is a Crafter FX570 EQ. Not a high end guitar, by any means, but plays well and sounds good plugged in (unplugged it lacks tone and projection, given the molded fiberglass body and the thin profile of the body). I've had this guitar for 11 years and no problems with the bridge (or anything else, for that matter).
My other acoustic/electric that also has a pinless bridge is my Breedlove AD25SM, my go-to gigging acoustic right now. Had it for 3 years, no problems.
My favorite Martin (OM-28V)
I have a D-41 and it sounds great! Still prefer my old 00-21 but great guitar the D-41 is!
I bought it in 98 IIRC. I got lucky as it was in a chain music store for less then the D-16 I had been saving for. I got the original case and everything.
I'm missing it because it's getting a neck reset and a refret right now
It's a toss up? Like them both!!
1949 Martin 0-18. Mojo'd in the extreme.
Tough call. I have two Martins and I've been trying to give them both equal play time lately. But if I had to choose between my '03 SWOMGT (cherry/spruce) or my D-28P, for sentimental reasons the Smartwood wins.
I'll bet that one has tone for days!
Martin D-15 (the bigger brown one)
Larrivee L03R and P03 and OM03
My 2 faves - all mahogany Larrivee 05 and all koa Gibson J-45
