Default What is the one guitar you can't put down?

The one that gives you the most joy after the new guitar high has long worn off. I'd love to know.
Thank you!

For me it's either of my two 0-16NY guitars. Love 'em both.

Hummingbird. I also can't help gazing at it when I'm not playing it

I'm always amazed at how good my Taylor 914 sounds when I get it out to play. There's just something magical about that particular guitar.

Out of all my guitars (to include a couple of Lowden's, Bourgeois, Gibson, Fender, Mule) my absolute favorite and the one I play 2-3x's as much as the others is my Furch GNC 4 SR. this is my least expensive but most loved guitar i have ever had.

My Martin J-40. Sometimes I make sure it’s not the first one I play for the session because it will shame the others that follow.
Honorary mention goes to my Martin 000c Steve Miller sig.

Right now it's my Greven OOO, but....I think my new OO-12 fret will catch up to it once it's broken in. It's only a few weeks old now.

My Martin 1931 D-1 Authentic does everything better than any guitar I have ever played.

The one that is in my hands at the time. If I couldn't put it down I wouldn't have more than one guitar.

In my mind, that ‘37 D28 AA that I played at summer NAMM in 2019! I think about playing it often!!

It depends on the music I'm focusing on.

For Blues and old-timey fingerpicking stuff and some strumming = Martin 000-15sm.
For lyrical fingerstyle = Webber OM.
For an all-arounder with lots of strumming = Taylor 324.
For pseudo classical and such = Larrivee L-30 nylon.

All of these guitars can be addictive to the point I crave them.
