Default Your One and Only!

Really tough for me to choose between my 17 year old Wingert grand concert and my 2 year old Kramer Prairie Grass. Both are great guitars. One a 12 fret long scale and the other a 14 fret short scale. One rosewood, the other mahogany, one with a cutaway, the other no cutaway, one no soundport, the other one has one.
So the one that I would probably grab in a get-out-of-Dodge-in-a-hurry scenario would be the Kramer since it is a bit lighter. The lovely cocobolo on my Wingert adds some heft. But, truly, who knows what I would grab? It really is a toss up.
I wouldn’t change a thing on either guitar as they are both custom built and fit me just right.
Best,
Jayne

My 1980 Daion Heritage 78. It's the one I've had the longest, and means the world to me.
My 94 Gibson J100Xtra, would be a very close second.

From a dream perspective, I'd keep my Froggy Bottom H12 Deluxe. What I'd change would be for it to magically sound as good as my Cole Clark Angel 2 plugged in!

Realistically, if I absolutely had to go down to one right now, it would be my Rainsong Nashville OM shorty as it covers the best of all three though the other two do their individual things better.

It would have to be my Martin Custom D (D-15 with spruce top). It was my first Martin and first all solid, USA made guitar.

The only thing I wish it had was a slightly wider nut. But even as is it's a sweet guitar. I really don't need anything better.

I've never seen an LS-56 before but I know it must be an amazing guitar.

That should be a tough choice between two.

But if it came down to living with only one guitar it would be my 1942 Gibson J50. We have been together a long time so it feels and sounds like home to me. Perfect for me - a quick decay where the notes just leap off the strings and then get out of their own way, saturated mids, crisp highs and a low end which would make a pre-War Martin D28 Herringbone run for cover. Topping it all off is a round C neck clocking it at 1.06" at the 1st fret.

What I would change is an easy call. I would give it a more generous string spread at the bridge something like 2 5/16" to 2 3/8" which is what Gibson had gone with before 1941.

Glad I don't have to make a decision like that. If forced, though, it would probably be my Goodall Concert Jumbo. But I would immediately start looking for another Martin style mahogany 00 .... And I'd also have to keep an archtop, probably the Vacanti. An electric too, likely the Gibson es339.

I only have one guitar. So the answer to question 1 is easy. The thing that I would magically want to change is the skill of the player!

I'm lucky to have been to Wales once, many years ago, and your photos always make me want to go back there!

I've only got one guitar, and it's not going anywhere - '69 Martin 00-18. Wouldn't change anything about it. I've even grown slightly fond of the chunky gold tuners with ebony buttons (no name, just have "made in Japan" stamped on them) that the previous owner put on it. I had intended to swap them out when I first got it for aesthetic reasons, but they work great, really smooth turning and hold it in tune well, so if it ain't broke may as well leave them be.

I'd keep a 000-28EC. It's my only acoustic LOL

She's a little bit lonely though, so I have an OM42 on the way this Wednesday. I still feel they might be lonely though, so maybe a 000-42EC will be joining the party too... LMAO
