Subject: RE: Martin 58. Gibson 2. Holy Cow!

Regarding your question about why no Yamahas. Do they actually make a drednought? I know the FG looks like a dred but it's 3/4" shallower and 3/4-1" wider at the lower bout. If you were to get a good sounding Yamaha (I did) it would still probably resemble an OM in sound more than a dred. It has no BOOM and to much sus for chuck. Lousy Bluegrass guitar. More comfortable to play though.
