    I have to agree, I have a friend who has a '64 EB and actually played it years ago at a gig through an AKG mic, it was magic, but he won't sell it to me:cry:
    My GA-RS Taylor holds its own though but for the big sound I play a 77' D-41 both with Fishman dual source pups. Not a big fan of the Expression System

    Three way toss up:

    1992 Gibson Studio A/E
    1954 00-18
    GS-Mini

    I guess the one I play the most now is the Taylor, as it is out all the time, and I do not feel bad about keeping it at arm's reach to play a quick tune.

    The other two are locked down.

    My Martin OM-28V would be my favorite acoustic.

    The last few years I sold many guitars and plan to enter retirement time shortly, sitting on the porch, dogs by my side, glass of bourbon on the table and these 2 acoustics:

    2002 Martin D-18GE - I'm a slow-hand for a 'grasser, so I appreciate the volume and sustain when I take a break. Mostly, I use its incredible volume to steer a jam while I'm singing ... so the song goes the way I want it to go (Carter Family version vs. F&S version usually).

    Omigosh. Cooper Black, I had just about let go of my longtime GAS for a sunburst 'hog, and you show that picture. What a stunning instrument.

    The one on the left is my favorite, but the 1972 J-40 is a very close second... my first "real" guitar.

    Yeah, they look great and are a lot less boomy then other big guitars (prob due to the big guards) but I love playing it live. It just looks cool:)

    It's been posted here before but here's my Santa Cruz OMS which is 14 fret 000-28 in Martin terms. A few years have passed and I remain thrilled every time I play or hear it. It defies its size in terms of the way it can hang with bigger guitars, I can't really describe the responsive way it plays, and it nails the tone with a mix that's pleasant and never too much bass, treble or mids.

    I want an acoustic guitar to remind me of a woman. So dreadnoughts are OUT!

    The best $250 I've spent!

    The Loar LH-250 VS, a great little blues guitar (mine is earlier, and doesn't have the pickguard)!

    I like my Garrison AG600CE very well, the more I play it the more I like it ever since I found GHS Silk and Steel strings for it, Im used to playing 8's and 9's on my PRS and 10's on my tele so normal acoustic strings seem very stiff to me.

    I don't have anything fancy or high priced. My best is this 11 year old Martin DM that just may be the best playing and sounding guitar I've ever owned. I went out just this past weekend (with lottsa money in my jeans) and tried everything I could put my hands on up to about $3300 and, seriously, couldn't find anything that sounded better to my ears.
