Had a wonderful hour playing back to back Mahogany/Blackwood satin finish Taylor 322 (string ? surely P/Br) and all Mahogany nitro finish Martin OODB Jeff Tweedy (Martin Retro stings). The Martin has a bit longer scale and its body is a bit deeper; both are fourteen fretters. Well, I cannot say which I would prefer : they sound quite alike thoug their timber differ a bit. While the slimmer Taylor fits me perfectly well, I have to take care of my right arm posture on the deeper Martin body. Both turn out to be great axes anyway ! ;)

Taylor 412ce...

I almost never play tricks on April 1st, but I did this year : I caught plenty of fishes among my relatives saying my new condo turned to a wet disaster because firefighters had to work on a fire in the condo just above mine ! ;-)
Why I did not do it on this forum ? Because you folks did not know I never play tricks on April 1st...

Took the Takamine G320 out of it's case after playing the Yamaha FS-310 for almost 3 weeks. That Yamaha is hard to put away. It took me a minute to get use to the longer scale of the Takamine and the slightly heavier string gauge. It has a nice crisp tone with lovely sustain.

Back on the D-18 and wondering if it would be worth it to try out a set of 80/20's next string change...or stick to PB's. Hmmm....

Enjoyed a relaxing Saturday afternoon playing my CEO-7, and covered a lot of different material from Neil Young, Gerry Rafferty, Stevie Wonder, the list goes on.

Recently swapped out the stock Golden Age tuners for a set of Waverly‘s with snakewood buttons....adds a classy touch, IMHO. Also, replaced the stock plastic bridge pins with some genuine bone pins. (a “Martin pet peeve“ of mine...1st world problems, I know) I had to ream out the bridge pin holes a bit, which was twitchy as hell for me, but it turned out well. Sounds bigger than it is, an awesome couch guitar!

D-18.

Got this Fishman passive humbucker a few days ago. Sounds ok and will only be used for recording at home. I don’t like the cable hanging out the sound hole but it’s a temporary install on whatever guitar I’m using at the time. All my guitars have a K&K and I’ll add this Fishman pickup so I can run it and the K&K into separate channels on the board and stick a mic in front of the guitar as well.
