Agreed. It also seems that the comparison is not only quantity, but quality. In that gear forum their focus seems to be on quality of gear without much emphasis on quality of instruments, and here we seem to focus on quality of guitars and often times are looking for the cheap and easy recording solution.

I guess what l meant was more that you have a "stable" of living creatures. Pets. While the purpose of an "arsenal" (we hope), is self-defense. I have a foot in both camps and can relate to both metaphors.

Woody Guthrie, of course, was a total outlier.

After this picture was taken I donated the small jumbo to my local High School and picked up these later in the year.

Maybe about one year ago and only a bunch of bursts dating between 1935 and 1965.

Here's my hoard...self admitted Martin fanboy...funny thing is I've only been playing around with acoustic guitar for about a year...

Trying cut it the collection down to just those instruments that I really 'love' like my Deering Artisan and Goodtime. In my mind I'd like to cut it down to 3 or 4.

Anyway, I have a Gretsch 9521 inbound and a F hole Dobro Hound Dog I'm trying to sell.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Martin DJR Sunburst and my 000-15M. Those are definitely keepers...

Are all those Brazilian Back and sides?
Yes.

Please Tell us more about your guitars, make, size and most importantly the sound.
All Martins - all nylon except the H. Used to play Ds and Js. Bought about 10 these after back and shoulder surgeries, in search of a good smaller guitar; easier to play. None suit me well - the necks are too wide. Had one 000 converted to steel; not working (neck still too wide). Keeping one 000 and the G for possible later conversion attempts.

Front left 00-28C, Front center 00-40H, Front right 00-28G

Rear left 00-28C, Rear inside left 000-28C, Rear inside right 000-28C, Rear right 000-28C

Front left 00-28C Slightly bass-heavy
Front center 00-40H (steel), Very well balanced, excellent tone & projection
Front right 00-28G Balanced, clean, folky sound. Typical '60s folk music guitar. Easiest to record.

Rear left 00-28C, Slightly bass-heavy, strong midrange, weaker trebles
Rear inside left 000-28C Mushy, unfocused sound. Weak.
Rear inside right 000-28C Very strong throughout, good dynamic range
Rear right 000-28C Even dynamics, slightly weaker than inside right

Hey jas, tell me about your Langdell guitar. How does it sound? Pete used to work on my guitars. He's a great guy!
