Thread Name: What is your favourite acoustic guitar?
Subject: RE: What is your favourite acoustic guitar?
Just no question Old Thunder, my '63 Guild D-40. I don't take her out of the case as often as I used to because when I play out somewhere I usually have to plug in and I just can't bring myself to make any holes in her to put in the pickup. And I feel like I should do the bulk of my practising on the guitars I'll be playing.

When I do play the Guild, I'm always struck by the volume (I'll put her up against most Martins I've heard) and the warmth and balance. Very strong bass and pure, clear treble tones all the way up the neck. And even with new strings, all you hear is wood.
