This has been up for a couple of days, so I'll go ahead and post the results. Thanks to all that participated.

The first one was the Gibson, the second one was the Martin, and the third was the Taylor.

Many of you got the Gibson and Martin right, but only one guessed right on the Taylor. I figured the Taylor would have been more obvious than the other guitars, but that 710 was very warm sounding for a Taylor, and it did have PB strings on it. The Gibson has more bass than the Martin. I guess that would be due to the forward shifted, scalloped bracing. The Martin is my favorite sound in person, it just has that old, dry and broken in tone. I do think that the Taylor recorded better than the other two.

Wow!!!! The Taylor was the 3rd guitar? I purposely listened to your recording again before reading your final response to see if they all sounded like they did to me the other day. No doubt about what I heard. I think I would have kept that Taylor, going by this particular recording . Might have been different results if you're D-18 was an HD-28 I suppose.

Yea, I do have some regrets about letting it go, but I liked my Martin and Gibson dreads just as much, I somehow thought that I needed a smaller body to balance it out. Small bodies are nice, but I have come to realize that I'm a dread and Jumbo fan for the most part.

OK. To my ears the third guitar has the most low end (typical of Martin I suppose), followed by the first. Plus the second guitar seems a little more "chimey", if that's a word (Taylor like) to my ears. I'm not that up on the Gibson signature sound admittedly, but I'll guess.......

1/ Gibson
2/ Taylor
3/ Martin

Thanks for the comparison BTW. If the 3rd guitar is the Gibson,at least I'll know that Gibson dreads have some seriously nice low end to them . In any event the third guitar is my fav in this demo.
To me, this response is spot on!

What strikes me is how similar they all sounded. That could be a function of the mic, but that is my reaction to the audio clip.
