Thread Name: A Martin or a Gibson?
Subject: RE: BS: A Martin or a Gibson?
Didn't dream up nuthin'... pulled `em off the Taylor site.
And Big Mick is bang on about this being a golden age for guitar building (it's just unfortunate the quality of wood isn't as abundant and available as it was 60-70 years ago). If I had lots of bucks and could only own one guitar, I'd go to an independent luthier for a custom machine.
If I had millions of bucks, I'd own lots of Gibsons, Martins, Taylors, Larrivees, Guilds, Santa Cruzes, Washburns, Nationals, D'Aquistos, Gretschs, Collings's, Breedloves, Lowdens, Benedettos, Seagulls, Yamahas, Froggy Bottoms, Ovations, et al, plus some by indy luthiers like Laskin, Manzer, Cumpiano, Reid, etc.
