I only have one. Taylor 314CE. Honestly, it’s awesome and I can’t see a reason to change.
Gibson Songwriter probably
i only have one, a martin 000. it's a great guitar for writing and recording, but i would like a slightly bigger/louder martin for campfire/backporch jams.
I only have one acoustic now. I am pretty bonded with it, and it plays easy and sounds sweet, so I guess I'm set. It's a custom built OM style from a small lutherie called John David Scott.
Not versatile, but it would be a National resonator. I would have to be in the position of having to make the choice in real life to make the choice between a single cone or tri-cone. Tri-cone is the prettiest sounding guitar on the planet to me. But the sonic sledgehammer a brass single cone is makes it a force of nature.
I keep a Johnson MIC $80 acoustic that was gifted to me years ago. After a fret level and setup it plays as good as any. I mounted a Strat single coil in the sound hole and added a pin jack at the heel so I can plug into a regular electric guitar amp.
I have other guitars that I've bought to repair and flip or outright flip in a range of price points. But really I am mostly an electric player and the acoustic is a beech campfire singalong guitar and not putting big money into something that can get sand in it/on it/or stepped on by drunken girlfriends.
All you Martin, Taylor, etc etc acoustic players ... glad you are attracted to them to keep those companies making guitars.
Just work at convincing those companies to choose local fast replenishing woods not fragile rain forest lumber, and all that wood from "managed forests" are still creating demand in the market so don't do it. Play responsibly.
J-45, mine's a '52.
Godin Multiac Nylon ACS Slim
No need for microphone
13-pin cable to V-Guitar modeling for unlimited possibilities
A rosewood back & sides OM.
Sorry about the photobucket blur.
I picked up a Bob Thompson OM with Englemann top and Brazilian RW back/sides. Very versatile for flat picking and fingerstyle. Could easily be my only acoustic.
My Martin at home.. Carvin for live .Both play like my electrics....

oh, that’s 2... Martin
I can only comment on what I've used or owned, this is the one for me, my lovely Taylor 812.
For steel I would have my Collings C10 short scale cutaway.
For Nylon my Godin Multiac Grand Concert.
But it's true .. I DO only have one acoustic guitar! That's so not true with electrics and basses though.
I have a Waterloo WL-14 and a National Resophonic El Trovador.
I'll make the call that the El T being a reso doesn't count as my "regular" acoustic! Plus it has the National Hot Plate with a Lollar Special T Tele pickup, so it's double-secret protected!
So I guess by default the Waterloo is in fact the acoustic I picked as my only acoustic.
If the question means what acoustic would I pick to own out of all the acoustics, but I don't have to pay for it, well, let's see. There's a Martin 00-17 hanging in my friends store, new and expensive. I really like playing that. And there was a mahogany smaller bodied Santa Cruz model out that I really liked, can't remember the model name. Or a vintage 00-18. Any of those would be just fine!
I'm not much of an acoustic player, so I'm perfectly happy with my Ovation. It's probably not the best acoustic but it gets the job done for me and sounds good.
I suppose if I were to buy another acoustic I might get some sort of Martin or Taylor, but I don't know much about acoustic guitars, and I'm not planning on getting another one anytime in the foreseeable future.
I'm a bit of a Collings fanboy, and the only one of my guitars that's currently off limits is my OM1. That being said, I think to my ears it's hard to beat a pre-war or 50's Martin D-18. After buying and selling tons of acoustic guitars, I'm just a mahogany guy.
10 years ago I took the HD28 plunge and never felt the need to seek another acoustic since. It’s THAT special.
