Thread Name: A Martin or a Gibson?
Subject: RE: BS: A Martin or a Gibson?
Played a smaller bodied Taylor once in Steve's Music in Ottawa and fell instantly in love with it. If I had the bucks at the time I would have bought it then and there.

In general (again) I've found Martins to be louder and fuller sounding than Gibsons of the same size, but my preference is for a guitar to sing along with and that's where the Gibsons shine for me. I I was playing primarily acoustic guitar instrumentals or in a bluegrass band, I'd go with a Martin dreadnought all the way.
