    Hello everybody ! I enjoy playing acoustic guitar and was curious what type do you play. I have a 2001 Gibson J45 and it truly is wonderful. I also own a 2005 SG standard. I know that's not acoustic..,I only own those 2 guitars. :rockin:

    Acoustic - Yamaha 12 string I bought in 1973 and and Ovation 6 string bought in 1974.
    Electric - Epiphone G400 bought a couple years ago and an Ibanez bass bought in the 90s.

    I play acoustic at my church for real and my electric in the bedroom for fun.

    I play my 1963 Hummingbird and a1999 WM45. The WM45 is supposed to be a "cheaper" J45 but I haven't seen anything cheap about it. It has the same materials and workmanship as any other Gibson acoustic. The Hummingbird is ...special.

    I don't have any, so I play my dads. He's got an old Yamaha dreadnought, and a Yamaha 12-string.

    These days I've just been playing his Collings mandolin when I'm in an acoustic mood these days.

    hey vox, that is a pretty cool looking tak v acoustic. How does it sound?

    My current acoustic is a taylor 214ce. Pretty good sounding for a small bodied guitar and really comfortable to play sitting down. It gets alot of play time in my house, in fact as I type my younger son is playing rooster on it in the living room ;D

    yes, we are all big music fans around the oldrock house. O0

    My knock around is a Yamaha FG735S. The more I play it, the better it sounds. No, really. The guitar's tone improves the more it's played!

    I agree, vox, great V acoustic.

    I have a Parracho-made classical (all solid woods), a Giannini nylon string cutaway with pickup, and several steel string acoustics:

    circa 1950 Kay carved-top archtop
    same era Gretsch New Yorker pressed ply top arched top w/ floating pickup - a sweet old jazz box

    A Blueridge BG-60, which is a "Contemporary Series Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar (Vintage Sunburst)" or a copy of a Gibson, sounds great even after serious top damage and repair

    As a former employee of "Lark in the Morning" a now-defunct music retail business, I also have a 3 Lark branded guitars that were made in Korea:

    Dreadnought 12 string w/ added single-coil pickup, can be used acoustic or electric

    Copy of a 00 Martin, small body, great for fingerstyle

    and a Jumbo cutaway, with internal pickup, sort of like a Guild jumbo.
