I would have any of those in my home but I don't dream about anything like that or any guitar at all. I don't think I have ever had a guitar dream that I can remember.

These are all wonderful instruments. But hey, I am just a working class guy and these are all waaaay beyond what I can afford.

I would go with the McPherson if my ship ever came in. Got to support the home boys!

As for my ship... I think it sank.[emoji30]

All nice guitars, but way to many great guitars that didn't make that list.

Absolutely nothing on the list sparks my interest. The Celtic guitar, however, is very beautiful - there is a construction vid (or article) of it floating around somewhere - very nice work. I've cut some of the most complicated antique banjo pearl inlay around and this is awe inspiring to me.

The only one that would interest me is the Martin. If I ever won the lottery that is.

I doubt the typical $1000 guitar is twice as good (however you measure that) as a $500 guitar. I'm sure that a $20,000 guitar isn't twenty times better than the $1000 instrument. But I'm just a beginner, so most of the differences are surely lost on me anyway.

Some of them sure are pretty, though.
You are absolutely right: the return to dollar spent curve flattens out as the cost goes up. But if you keep an open ear, the returns are there. (FYI I don't have any $20,000 guitars.)

Nice list, but the only one that pricked up MY ears was the Cordoba. Mainly because I know next to nothing about classical guitars and don't have one.

Nothing else on my bucket list.

Never blew the 3500$CAD ceiling (some 2500$USD).

Hey Bruce,

I'm with you on that. And I already own one. But I'll take another if they're handing them out.

...from the visual aspect and descriptions nothing there that I would “dream” about...but dreams are personal so that would explain why a list of 10 random nice guitars don’t figure in for me...don”t know if there’s anything to agree or disagree with??

I'd take that Cordoba Hauser in a heartbeat.

My birthday just passed, but if anyone's interested in gift ideas for next year, I'll take the Collings.
