    Ahem... as the owner of a Martin D-28 1937 Authentic as my only acoustic I respectfully disagree!

    I like the Martin GPC series. Probably a 28 E

    If not that, maybe a OOO

    I'm trying to figure out how to afford a Taylor 562ce right now. I bought a cheap Takamine jumbo 12 a few years ago and have barely touched my 6 string acoustics since. Now I figure it's time to upgrade to a nicer 12.

    This was my number one for quite a while...

    But this guitar is getting so sweet with age...I think it's the new number one:

    I’ve only had it for a few years but it’s a lifer for me . I feel like it’s the only acoustic that I truly enjoy playing.

    it has the export stamp on the back of the headstock . It looks like it’s had a pretty interesting life .

    If you sent me out right now with $5,000 I'd probably come home with a Collings, Waterloo, Gibson or Martin. The Waterloo WL-14 is crazy light and fun to play so that's probably going to be the winner but you never know I might run across an old, special J-45 or D-28.

    Goodall Standard rosewood. Got a standard with Koa right now and that does the job just fine too!

    Easy answer for me: My Takamine F-370SS, purchased new in '98 or '99. The model was made for only a year and it is truly superb. Solid spruce top, solid koa back and sides, beautiful inlay work, and it plays and sounds amazing. I keep trying out Martins, Gibsons, etc. when I'm in guitar stores and I have yet to find its equal.
