Add Kendall Morse to the list of Taylor users. I didn't play it at the Getaway but it does have a wonderful sound when Kendall plays it. Nah, that can't be due to the Taylor - that has got to be his own particular touch. *G*

George Austin, who lives in the Seattle area, is a financial advisor by trade (I think), but on his off time he's one of the best fingerpickers in the country. He used to play Martins, but now he has a couple of Taylors. Great sounding instruments played by a real fingerpicking virtuoso.

MG shows once again that he is a wannabe. I would not argue that Martins, taken as a whole, are a wonderful guitar and the standard by which factory builts are measured. Gibson,by virtue of its heritage and quality standard, certainly deserves its reputation. To suggest, however, that only losers play Taylor is about as stupid a statement as can be made. Real players understand that we are in a golden age of guitar lutherie. Collings, Larrivee, and others all deliver a sound and playability standard to rival any of the old names. At the top of that list is Taylor. They are delivering an instrument which has strong bass, balance across the strings, actions to die for, and quality materials.

Didn't dream up nuthin'... pulled `em off the Taylor site.

And Big Mick is bang on about this being a golden age for guitar building (it's just unfortunate the quality of wood isn't as abundant and available as it was 60-70 years ago). If I had lots of bucks and could only own one guitar, I'd go to an independent luthier for a custom machine.

If I had millions of bucks, I'd own lots of Gibsons, Martins, Taylors, Larrivees, Guilds, Santa Cruzes, Washburns, Nationals, D'Aquistos, Gretschs, Collings's, Breedloves, Lowdens, Benedettos, Seagulls, Yamahas, Froggy Bottoms, Ovations, et al, plus some by indy luthiers like Laskin, Manzer, Cumpiano, Reid, etc.

willie nelson is obviously happy with that guitar with a hole in it. all kinds of people play all kinds of strange guitars.

its a bit like saying a maserati is the best car.

try guitars til you find one you like. personally I've owned gibsons, rickies, martins etc. I play yamahas and the variax at present, but I wouldn't describe myself as settled.

I'm settled at the moment (not a Martin or Gibson nor even a "name" guitar, although I've owned both the former and a number of other leading makes) and would echo entirely what weelittledrummer said.

There is no "best", it's what suits (and pleases) you personally for the style(s) of music you play.

If I ever had the money I'd commission a Manzer ("Au Naturel" archtop model).

he speaks no more than the truth, we're all losers if we don't play Martins.

I bet Prince Charles and Tony Blair play Martins. Its a brilliant investment - the only reason you wouldn't have one is if you're a bit of a loser - something which I freely admit to. In the great race of life - I stumbled in the paddock.

There are so many great jobs for different instuments to do . This is why many of us have more then one guitar . Staying with what I thought the reason for this thread was looking at WHY we buy a Gibson or a Martin is more interesting to me..
             If your in a field listening to a bluegrass band you understand why CF Martin invented what he called the Dreidnaught . A big guitar with a lot of range to hold a band together (or for Gene Autry on a mike on top of a horse in a feid ) . If your playing folksyer fingerpicking I find the dreadnaught gives to many layers of sound to work for the gendre so I use concert shaped guitars that cut through more . I love single O doubleOO and Treble OOO mahagany instruments. They work for me .(Rosewood was better for my old friend Lui Collins) So a smaller concert Martin works for folk finger picking and English stuff.
             THe L OO Gibson has a wonderful bright Charactoristic that dose very very well for slide work and sounds out well at sessions . Very bright and clear with a lot of sound . Its not just louder but adds a demention in a place a Martin can get lost . Less mid rang then the MArtin but more top .
               The concert size Taylor with a cutaway is a wonderful gigging guitar(different wood different jobs ) THere is a good reason why you see so many Taylors ON STAGE . Nothing sounds better going into a pa (without addition of a mike that is ) Its a very easy guitar to sound great on stage .. Hence the list above . I would say in all fairness that those same proffesionals listed in large numbers above playing Taylors very likly used meny different guitars in the studio to add different dementions to their songs and tunes .

                Great guitars fit different jobs .
                            All the bnest , Guy

Good rundown, Guy. That pretty well says it.

As I mention above, I play a classic myself, but then I use it primarily for vocal accompaniment. It works particularly well for the kind of songs I generally do. I also play some classic (Sor, Tárrega, a little Bach) with an occasional lapse into flamenco, so I'm better off with a nylon-string all the way around.

A classic guitar may not be "traditional" in some circles, e.g., bluegrass, but I've sat in with bluegrass groups, and my nylon-string punched it out as well as any steel-string Martin. Good classics have a lot of penetration and come through well. Willie Nelson's old Martin (obviously vintage and really beat up) has one helluva sound!

If Martin Gibson has a 1971 D-18, he's probably got a pretty good instrument. But the only losers are those who are so closed-minded that they refuse to even consider possible alternatives and insist on dumping on everyone who isn't as closed-minded as they are.

Okay, as I have said, I love my old Martin... I think it sounds better than anything Iz played anywhere.... Yeah, like old Martins, it'll work ya' but, hey, I like the full sound...

Well, at the Getaway, I had acouple chances to play Kendall's Taylor and will have to admit that as fir playability, it prolly comes out on top but fir tone??? I think that my Martin wins out... Not by a bunch mind you but enuff...

But if you tale palyability and tone and mix 'um together, hey, I'd have to say they come out 'bout equal.... Sniff, never thought I'd say that but that's the way I call it....

Bobert, then why did you not break out that famous Martin so I could play it? You never did let me get my hands on it.

If those who play Taylors are wannabees and losers, then what is a guy who gave away a 1955 Gibson J-45, and sold a damn good Martin HD 28 when he bought a 1983 Taylor 810?

The people who build Martin guitars are not magicians, so the think they are something that no other builder can equal or surpass is silly. They are all made of the same material, and Martin does not have a monopoly on the best materials.

This whole argument is silly.

Granted the tonal qualities of a Martin (specifically D-28) are best suited for Bluegrass ... but for Jazz riffs, they just don't cut it ... Taylors are perfect for accoustic jazz playing by far.

I play country and folk, some blues but mostly Bluegrass. I find my Gibson better suited to country and blues and wish I had a louder, richer tone for Bluegrass. A friend asked me to play his Martin Saturday night at a festival to see if I wanted to buy it. I thought the sound was not quite as rich as my Gibson's. But I find that my Gibson is difficult to keep in tune and the action is not as close as I'd like. Maybe it just needs a tuneup? katy

From what I read (and after half way down I got bored) none of you really truly know your ass from a hole in the ground. I have a 1947 HD-28 worth over $10,000, but I don't brag on it becuase it's worth an ass load but becuase it is the boomiest, tennist, bell like, sweetest toned guitar I ever heard it is an everyday player. I also own a 1963 Gibson J-45 that has very simmalar tone just a little more mellow and muddled. Ask any true expert, for bluegrass the bright booming martins are king. For mellow blues,country,singer songwriter stuff it's Gibson all the way.

P.S. I own a 1971 Rosewood Loprinzi Dreadnought which I love for the great tone and personal sentament, a 1973 Yamaha FG 12-string took down to a 6 string slot head, just for kicks and 2 yamaha OOO, but the yamaha's no matter how set up are nothing compartivley. Also Ovation sucks ass, Taylors are for pussies, Takamine sucks, Stella's sucked backed then and still do now, and my personal opinion is that european luthiers would sell better in the united states if they would do more traditional instruments

more traditional? what do you mean? English guitar makers are very diverse.

in fact all guitar makers sre very variable and capable of the odd Friday afternoon job. I've owned most guitars in my time - Gibsons - martins, an English made Rob Armstrong, a Rickenbacker, yamaha LLD's, etc

I played an Ovation baladeer for many years. But for the last six years or so I have been enthralled by the yamaha CPX range. I have two good ones - a cpx8 with a spruce top, and cpx15cm - with a cedar top.

neither of them classic guitars, both have laminate sides.....however they both have that 'wow!' factor whenever other guitarists pick them up. just something about the tone and responsiveness.

I don't think martins are overpriced, but mine didn't stay long on the staff.

An old friend of mine, Bernie Martin, made and played many instruments. One that I never heard him play, but that hung on the wall of his studio was a guitar made from the fender of an old Ford. He called it his Martin fender guitar.

Personally, I prefer Martins for flat picking and Gibsons for finger picking.
