Awesome, thanks for that! They're all very nice. Whose is the Martin?
See, the ridiculous amount of money you and I have spent on acoustics paid off. :D

Be quiet Oleg..........

You gonna go far boy...

When faced with quality, I recognise it every time.

I must say after listening to the mp3 I like the Guild the best, hope that means you can still keep it Strummers!

I feel a bit embarrassed that I’m only just now starting to appreciate the world of acoustics. Can see a whole that would permit rabbits opening up

What was it you liked about the guild clip above the others ?

What you don’t get is the neck feel, and the guild wins big time there

I'm going to book an acoustic room for the next Auckland one. Weirdly enough they were drowned out by the two Marshall Superleads last time.

Whatever you do, NEVER click on this link. It's not so much a rabbit hole as a wormhole which distorts one's perceptions into considering US$15-20,000 is prefectly reasonable for a wooden box.
You can hear every guitar played and their recordings are superb.

It's my favourite porn site.

dude, you used to throw that amount of cash on a couple of wheels and a fancy frame and saddle that you still needed to use your leg power on.

Sounds good too.

What was it you liked about the guild clip above the others ?

I found (apart from the shit playing) they the finger licking tone was more pleasing with the Martin

The tone was more pleasing to my ears :-)

We had one of those a few years ago, was great to be able to still have a conversation when playing was happening :-)
