Thread Name: A Martin or a Gibson?
Subject: RE: BS: A Martin or a Gibson?
MG shows once again that he is a wannabe. I would not argue that Martins, taken as a whole, are a wonderful guitar and the standard by which factory builts are measured. Gibson,by virtue of its heritage and quality standard, certainly deserves its reputation. To suggest, however, that only losers play Taylor is about as stupid a statement as can be made. Real players understand that we are in a golden age of guitar lutherie. Collings, Larrivee, and others all deliver a sound and playability standard to rival any of the old names. At the top of that list is Taylor. They are delivering an instrument which has strong bass, balance across the strings, actions to die for, and quality materials.
