2005 Huss & Dalton 00 12 fret. Prior to sometime in 2007, these were built with a 1 7/8" nut and the 2 5/16" saddle string spacing they still have today. With that short scale, the guitar is essentially a fingerstyle player's dream guitar.

My 000-18 GE.

Apparently I set it down long enough for someone to buy it.

Huss and Dalton TD-R (baked Adi/EIR); Taylor Custom GA (cedar/cocobolo) Links to my NGDs in my signature.

Don't get me wrong, I love my current arsenal and have no plans to downsize, but if there was a fire, those two cases would be in my hands on my first evacuation trip out (and of course, safety permitting I'd run back in and get the others).

Thatís a hard question. I sold or traded off all guitars that didnít make me feel like I couldnít put them down. As Iím in practice mode, Iíve playing my custom OM-35 which is such a smooth, amazing guitar.

Let's see. Currently, it's my Lowden FM-35 and my Huss and Dalton TOM-R. Sadly, I have to sell one, so the Lowden is for sale, but the good news is it is to fund my first custom guitar! So I am going to say my custom Edwinson, even though I'm months away from delivery

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

2016 MIK Gretsch G5622T-CB Electromatic: my road warrior for the last four years, and most likely for the foreseeable future - better build quality than my Brooklyn-original '64 Double Annie, worthy competition for my MIJ double-cut White Falcon, well under $1K brand-new, and I'll probably score another as backup sooner than later (yeah, they really are that. good.):



Hey, they can't all be acoustics...

Tough one... but the guitar I own that is truly the hardest to put down - because it's the most comfortable (standing or seated), easiest playability, most balanced tone (warm as well as crisp, soft or loud), well suited for all of my playing styles (finger-style, flatpicking, finger-picking and strumming) - is my 2011 Breedlove American Series OM/SReH. It's my number one gigging guitar. Oddly, she gets less attention at home (due to all of her jealous sisters). But coincidentally, I sat and played the Breedlove exclusively tonight.

I like to rotate playing different guitars, but right now I would say my 2015 Taylor 514ce FM Ltd. Plays like butter, and sounds great!

For me itís my Seagull mini jumbo. When I ordered it I was afraid it might not agree with my shoulders. Turns out it fits like a glove and I like the neck profile and string spacing. Also,for lack of better words,it has an old timey tone to it. Certainly the nicest guitar value iíve Ever had.

Mine is my Martin OMC35. The shape is very comfortable and the MLO neck shape and low action are like butter to play. I just canít gig with it due to the terrible on board electronics. I see a K&K mini in its future.

A really close second is the McPherson Sable I just got for Christmas. There is something about the sound of that guitar that is really enticing. I installed the low action saddle and it plays like butter for me.

This week it’s a Boucher BG-52. Just changed the strings and it is pulling grooves, song ideas and chord changes out of me.
I have no doubt that next week it will be a different guitar.
