My Eastman AC222. The one thing I would change is the scale length to 24.9

Why? That would make it sound less rich, not as much scope for capo use, and intonation would be more persnickety.

Thought about this a while and decided I would take a different tack and not meaning to sidetrack the intent of thread but after long consideration about my priorities

My wife is my one and only (Everything else is just stuff and easily replaced really )

OK I'll crawl back under my bridge

None of my guitars have sentimental value so it would be the best playing and sounding - the 2018 Gibson J-35, I can do everything with that one and it just "fits". The Martin 00-15M is a close 2nd.

And then there's the Seagull Folk.... here we go again.

My Alvarez MD95. It's real pretty and sounds fantastic! I wouldn't change a thing about it.

The 000-15SM arrived last Saturday. Played it about six minutes and put it back in the case. Played it again for five minutes two days later. I'm just not bonding with this one. It is now for sale.

Bought a 2000 OM-21 on Tuesday. We are bonding well.

Iíd keep my 2008 Martin OM28vÖ

Iíd upgrade the tuners to Waverleys, maybe finally get round to changing the pixelated pickguard..

I only have one other guitar, a Collings OM2hT which is, objectively, the better guitar of the two, but my Martin was my first real guitar and itís got too much sentimental value for me ever to let it go. Plus it does sound great and play great too (love the Mod V neck) - to be honest I wouldnít be too upset if it had to be my only guitar, for many years it was and it does all I need it to do

At the momentÖalthough I love my 000-18, Iíd probably keep the ďmessyĒ D-18 I just got. Itís not a Custom Shop, doesnít have any thing unique about itÖexcept that it sounds wonderful to me and itís plays nicely.

I own two steel strings at the moment a 00 17 Authentic and a newly acquired Martin 000 16SGT. I think I would go with the 000 because of the great neck shape. It sounds pretty wonderful also.

I canít do it as I change my mind depending on my mood and what Iím playing. They all have their strengths and weaknesses. At the moment it would be my rare Sigma dreadnought, two weeks ago it would have been my H&D etc. Iím not done buying yet so one day I hope Iíll have more clarity in regards to what I want.

Ultimately Iíd like to get down to 3 or 4 guitars but Iím still exploring them at the moment. Just when I think about selling one I try it again and really actively listen to the instrument. I somewhat frustratingly rediscover the reason I bought the guitar in the first place and it lives to fight another day. I donít put much emphasis on price as my Sigma and Freshman guitars sound better for certain pieces than my boutique guitars. As long as they all bring something unique to the table they stay. I donít have any similar sounding guitars, tonally they vary enormously.

My 65 Epiphone Texan. As is. It is the perfect guitar to sing with. It has a mixed set of Dazzos, a 70 and a 60, and has the perfect patina of I could have bought it new and giged for four decades with it. The five bad case claw gashes have blended into the top and the one I added has enough sweat and dirt to be getting there, and the classic old Gibson finish checked lacquer is beautiful, with a bit of down to the wood pick scratch around the sound hole. Enough other bumps and bruises to give me street cred and worry free play, it's quirks are plenty, and I've gotten over my least favorite sunburst. It's got the adj bridge I'll never touch and a 1 5/8" nut, and that works ok since I took up mandolin.

The question also is applicable to current, multiple spouses and/or partners. Which one, if you were forced, would you keep? First, second, third, or fourth? Not only that, but make the choice and then cast a spell to fine tune your selection.
Now, if the person making the choice had the benefit of psychopathy, it would make the answer not a big deal at all, they wouldn't even need magic, because when something works, they don't get wrapped up in the this-or-that, they just do it. Hands up, which among us has the advantage of that?
