Either my HD-28 Martin or my Marquis D-28 martin.
Fender San Luis Rey
Yamaha FG700 with upgraded bone saddle and pins, K&K Pure Mini acoustic pickup.[/IMG]
Taylor 426CE-LTD - just amazing tone and playability. I have a Takamine, Washburn as well but those are not close to the Taylor. I bought the Taylor at a Pawn shop for $1000 if you can believe that (sells for $2199 and used on EBAY for about $1700 or so)! Our sound guy came out from behind the board when I first started using it and said, WHAT IS THAT, that is the most incredible sounding acoustic I ever mixed, it sound good flat on the board.
A Gallagher Doc Watson cutaway came my way just about 10 years ago.
It is a decent enough guitar.
I picked up Steve Kaufman's 7 string once, the action was so low and even, the wind could blow on it and fret a chord.
Thanks, but your D-18 has had a SONG written about it!
Depends on how you define "main." My main acoustic for gigging purposes is my acoustic/electric Breedlove Atlas series AD25/SM: solid Sitka spruce top, solid mahogany back & sides, dreadnaught w/ cutaway, Fishman Classic 4 electronics.
However, the prize of my meager collection remains my 28+ year old Japanese vintage Hohner G-940, one of the upper end models in the Arbor series: aged, close grained spruce top; solid select mahogany back & sides; solid Honduran mahogany neck; ebony fingerboard; rosewood bridge; ebony bridge pins; bone nut and saddle; maple bindings and inlays/position markers; lacquered, hand-rubbed gloss finish.
My Hohner and Breedlove. My Hohner G-940 is on the right in the picture (in my left hand). My Breedlove AD25/SM acoustic/electric is on the left (in my right hand). My Logan Custom mahogany Tele is in the middle.
An older pic, of me playing the Hohner for my grandson Corbin (he's 9 now).

MIne is a 1978 Guild 12 strings that I bought new
best sounding acoustic guitar
I play a Seagull S6 Cedar ! Simple, sturdy, reliable and sweet sounding (to my ears that is !)Those Canadian luthiers sure know how to make a fine instrument .
Only have 1 acoustic, its an Ovation Celebrity Deluxe, and every time I play it I like it less and less!
Been pining after a Breedlove since I tried a few last year.
If my signature is right, it's a wonderful Takamine Hirade TH-5C. A trully great, and somewhat affordable, classical guitar (which can easily do all the accoustic applications there are - jazz, ballad, rock, pop - You name it)
I guess it would be my custom John How Ladder Braced Concert followed by my Martin OM-15 gloss.
Here's mine, a Ibanez TCM50-VBS along with my CVC.
Taylor Big Baby
It's a 2/3 sized dread and it has an interesting design - there isn't a heal where the neck meets the body and its really well priced and if that wasn't enough it came with a very high quality gig bag.
Very loud for it's size - infact it's so loud I don't play it much in the house as the sound carries more than the electric!!!!
Laguna LD-1 Little Brat 3/4 size
I just love this little thing!
I got one of them too.
It depends on the situation as to which one I use, but these are my two "go-to" accoustics, a Martin D-28 (on left) and a Martin D-18. I suppose if I had to pick only one, it would be the D-18. In my opinion, it has a better mid-range and treble-range than the 28. But, then again, maybe it's only sentimental because it's been with me now for over thirty years.
