GUEST,garydon986 Who here plays cedar top acoustics? (22) RE: Who here plays cedar top acoustics? 05 Mar 02

Great timely thread for me as well. Last week end spent 3 hours playing various cedar tops. Taylor, Santa Cruz, Lowden, and Goodall. Saw one that they said couldn't be done. A cedar/maple combination 3 piece back that actually sounded good a Taylor 514c custom. But I was looking for a guitar for my O'Carolan pieces which I flat pick. Soft mellow round harpish tone. Got it down to two guitars. Taylor 514c Cedar/Mahogany and a Lowden F25c Cedar/Rosewood. I left the Lowden O10 out as I have a Jumbo already. Of the two I chose the Taylor but did not purchase it as I am haunted by "What does the Lowden f25c with the Clairo Mahogany back sound like?" If I order it I can find out I was told but then I'd have to keep it. While I liked the idea I hate buying before hearing.

By the By folks, What are you doing to amp the cedars. I like the LR Baggs I-Beam into a Baggs PreAmp to a Fender acoustic amp for my Guild J30. Any sugestions
