Any number of S Yairi and K yairi guitars I have had over the years. The older 70's years. Also an early Webber OM.

Eastman E20D - their classic Adi/Rosewood pre-war D28 style dread. Not necessarily D28 tone, but rich nonetheless and incredible quality as well in an unbeatable value street price of $1100.

Best for the money? Probably an electric. An Epiphone Wilshire I picked up for $125 from MF years ago. They listed it as "inoperable, requires repairs, no signal output". Physically, it was fine. I ordered it, soldered the ground wire on the jack in about 30 seconds and had a guitar that turned out **** fun to play for 1/4 of it's normal price and 5 minutes work to take off the pickguard, solder the jack and put it back together.

Obviously you never rode on an Indian train in the 70s...

My 1981 Martin D-35. Got it new and still love it.
It was on sell for 40% off list and I took it home for $870.00.

It was my first good guitar.

The used D-28 I bought used at Guitar Center for $1500.00 - she was dusty and the neck was way off - I figured she had been there a long time, and had been pushed aside by all the Taylors and Gibosons - glad I bought her - I've owned lots of high-end Martins but for the price this 28 beats all

Used Eastman E20P for 650 and my Freshman FA400D bought for 350 brand new in 2007 (normally about 800 which would still be great value). Both stellar instruments. My Gibson, H&D, Dave King and Collings are wonderful as well of course but i expected them to be given the cost.

My current fave gutar though is my J-45 (1942 banner reissue), its been sounding wonderful in BEBEBE tuning for a month, then i moved into DADGAD and open D for a few weeks. Currently its back in standard and its sounded wonderful in all of these tunings with only a 12-54 set of Thomastik strings on it. The strings are still going strong. I really wish my Collings 000-2h and H&D ds-12 had decent sized necks like the J-45.

Mine would be a classical guitar that a hobby luthier that lives nearby built for me. I paid him $1500.00.

He watched and listened to me play. He took some measurements. I selected the wood. He went to work on it. Since guitar building is his hobby, I waited about a year for him to complete the project.

You may not be overly impressed by its appearance, but you would have to pay more than $3,000.00 to match the sound quality. I have yet to find a guitar that is as comfortable for me to play.

I'm going to play that guitar now. Thanks for the reminder.
