Played the Gibsons L-1 and L-00 paying attention to scale lenght (the L-00 being only 1cm shorter though its 12 free frets) and string spacing. Action is almost the same all from nut to twelfth fret with same string spacing at bridge. Neck shapes are also alike. I still do not understand why the L-1 appears more comfortable to play : Maybe I have a twisted mind ! :-/

I played an Indonesian made fender . Honestly I don't understand why fender acoustics have such a bad reputation. I've played a number and none were anything to complain about

Had a flash : Since the small twelve fret Gibson L-1 looks like a classical guitar, why not play it as a classical guitar on left hip ? Works better than in folk position !

It was after I packed and shipped the Hot Rod tricone...

Loving the sound of the D-18.

Just thinking to myself, if I would have bought my D-18 first, I wouldn't have the three rosewood Martins. Heh, April fool!!
