Matt Acoustic amplification (16) RE: Acoustic amplification 15 Nov 99

Fortunato and Liam,

My Santa Cruz is a D cutaway made of Brazilian Rosewood and Sitka. I have two other D's for back up: a twelve fret and a standard D in IRW and Sitka, I sold my Larrivee D-09 to a friend. The guitar had good tone; it lacked volume and projection. After she lost it to a thief, she bought a Santa Cruz FS. Taylors have great necks, smooth action and a uniform sound. They lack strong personalities, unless you buy the Leo Kottke 12 string. Consider a Collings OM. Lowden guitars, especially the O series, sing. The best tone I have heard in the past year came from a Dana Bourgesois OM cutaway. Pierre Bensusan uses Lowden. Tony Rice and Duck Baker both use Santa Cruz. Everybody and his mother seem to have a Taylor. Brad Davis, who rips with Marty Stuart, uses a Collings. I hope no one is confused.
