My "go-to" is usually my 12ie. Always sounds great and easy to impress with.

I would take a shit in the Sound Hole of my Yamaha. Then I would use another turd, this one frozen and crafted like a spoon, to eat the other turd. For a top of the line Martin.

Yeah, I'm lucky to have a nice guitar.  But the guitar is better than the player.  i wish it was the other way around.  ;)

I think maybe this one. It took a long time to match up just the right pickups to get the balance I wanted. Alder body, Maple and Brazilian Rosewood neck. I know the pickguard and knobs are a bit flash, but I like it.

 I'm still looking for the acoustic guitar of my dreams, maybe a Martin Keb Mo signature. Stunning tone from the one I work on for a local studio.

Nope I looked it up. HD-28. I was thinking of the Gibson model.. ..

I durn near bought an HD-28 when I was shopping for guitars.. At the time I was playing lots of bluegrass and it just didn`t have the "Bark" of a D-18.. The D18`s are louder imo, But I do wish I would have went with a D-18GE..

Big difference in price between the two.  Is the sound/playability that muc different?

The D18 GE has forward shifted braces and is more to specs of the pre-wars.. One of the best Martin makes for us regular players..lol

The HD-28 just isn`t my thing.. I`ve played a mess of them..Rosewood has more complex tones than `hog imo.. Great for singer songwriters..

If could afford it I would get a Martin "D18 Authentic"..But man they are proud of them..


Janet Davis has great info on everything Martin..

Hmmm...each one has it's own sound and personality. But one of my faves is a Washburn X-series I got for 230 bucks brand new. I was going to retrofit one of my other guitars with a whammy bar, but I found the Washburn-bar and all- for the price of a Floyd Rose, so I took a chance. The thing plays great and I CAN'T knock it out of tune. My only complaint is the stock pickups, but a swap-out can change that.
