    To all of you electric guitar players and collectors. If you could only have 1 acoustic guitar? Which one would it be?

    EDIT: Sorry for starting the thread and not posting my "only" acoustic.

    My 1975 Martin D-35 :)

    This is the only acceptable answer. Close the thread.

    I have a 1963 Gibson J-45. Easy to play and a wonderful sound from the player's position. This would be my one.

    its gonna be a lot of “my guitar of course” but Martin D28 is probably the most versatile and consistently good sounding I think.

    Bought it last year and mY Gibson Hummingbird, Guild DC-E1 and Godin Ultra A6 have not been touched. It's really a amazing guitar and it does a fair rocking Electric Guitar as well at a gig

    My Taylor 414 (bought new in 2003) has been a beast live and in the studio. It’s the one for me.

    Martin EMP-2. It was a limited edition Martin made from tzalam wood. We had one at the store I worked at from 2000-01. Best sounding acoustic I ever played. We traded it to a collector for a Custom Shop Tele before I was able to rustle up the $ to buy it.

    I've had my '04 Martin 000C-16RGTE for about 15 years now. It's perfect for me.

    I do only have one steel string acoustic guitar! Mine is a MIC Guild D-50 rosewood back and sides. It gets very little use. My Byrdland is my most played instrument.

    The Taylor my friend @bbe_rev lent me last year is a much, MUCH better guitar, tho. I'd like one.

    The most comfortable, playable, and best sounding.

    I had a HD-28V that sounded glorious and I found it very uncomfortable to play to the point I never wanted to play it. I sold it and thought I was done with acoustics, having owned various makes and models, until I played a Martin OMJM.

    The OMJM sounds like a Martin should, plays like a Taylor or even an electric (with a great neck), and super comfortable when seated. For me, it’s just right.

    I have a Martin OM18 Authentic as my only acoustic. Quite versatile.
