ollaimh Best guitars for fingerstyle? (84* d) RE: Best guitars for fingerstyle? 11 Feb 13


i play almost totally finger style, in fact i think you should have to play five years minium before you get a flatpick licence.

i like a mahagony lowden with a cedar top. jumbos are often better with mahagony, and a ted thompson smaller bodied spruce and rosewood. dofferent but great sounds. i also have a rizyani and a local fitzsimmons that both are great pickers guitars.

i don't like many martins for finger style, nor many taylors. i have liked guilds. and i have fifties gibson j 45 which is close to the others. but its a specail j 45.

i had a 1954 martin d 28 that was unusually good but i sold it as i had the lowden and the thompson and needed the money. the thompson out shines them all and is equal tyo any guitar i have ever heard. he still sells from british columbia. a t2 is $3600 and as good or better than ten thousand dollar hand made guitars.
