I would rather have one of those the the Bob Johnson one in the other thread.

I could get some those ones under $300K I bet.

The beveled one is beautiful.

Fancy woods are fine, but meaningless if the guitar doesn't sound good and play well.


How do these one sound and play?

Yeah there is the sound thing.

They are nice decorative guitars though.:smile:
And they may be awsome guitars, but you can't make that judgment without at least hearing one.


Remember Martin D28's are pretty basic looking, but.....

I agee.

I still hold that blindfolded is the best way to but a guitar off the rack.

Put on a blindfold have the guitar handed to you. Play it and listen.

This way the visuals don't get in the way of the feel or sound.

I've done that once with a friend and we came away with a Larivee over a J-45 Gibson and a Martin D35 HD.

I like the martin best with the blindfold off. They all felt fine, but the Larivee sounded way better for $1000 bucks less.

It wasn't a money thing, my friend had the cash for either.

Mike are you being a post hoar. ;)
