Merritt What is your favourite acoustic guitar? (259* d) RE: What is your favourite acoustic guitar? 26 Jun 03

I have two favorites.

1. In 1969 I bought a new Standel 00-size 6-string in Media, Pennsylvania. Traded a structurally challenged Fender Villager 12 plus $200 for it. Just an easy playing, sweet sounding acoustic with an arched back. The Standel line was designed by Sam Koontz under contract with the old Standel Amp Co. Koontz worked for the Harptone Case Co in New Jersey. Now that it's getting old and fragile, I keep in Open D tuning, but it still gets played pretty much every day.

2. My current guitar for 80% of playing/gigging is a Martin 000C-15E with a solid mahogany body and Fishman on-board electronics.
