What is your favorite non-Larrivee guitar that you own?
For me ... Goodall Pacific parlour.  Quilted maple with cedar top.

Those aren't Guilds in my book.They are a boutique version an unaffordable by most,the Chinees stuf though desent are not Guilds either.I did find the GAD-JF30 to be the best sounding Gibson J200 I've played and heard.

The OM-21 started being made in 92. I had a 93 OM-21 that had better components and features than the newer models. It was really dumb for me to let that one go.

This is my 45 year old all mahogany 000, made by Harmony in Chicago. Rebraced and refinished, with lots of other changes and upgrades.
It is my version of a Martin OOO-17. I've played it as much as most of my other guitars. So it's my favorite non Larrivee for now.  (http://s1152.photobucket.com/user/dpndn/media/Ladder%20to%20X%20bracing/20160131_133424_zpsikmsnmr8.jpg.html)

Rob,

Some interesting video interviews with Ren Ferguson, who has worked for Gibson, and then went to work with Fender to help rebuild the Guild brand (first back in Connecticut, then in California at the Cordoba factory.

The second link has more to do with Guild, but the first link is the beginning and is pretty interesting about him getting hired on and working at Gibson/Montana:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09Kf6jyBuak

https://www.youtube.com/watch?annotation_id=annotation_1114359837&feature=iv&src_vid=09Kf6jyBuak&v=jzbfmjClo_I

If that second long link doesn't work, there's a link at the end of the first video to get you to the second one. Both are very interesting.

Mike I had the chance to talk to him once about having my Guild JF30/12 repaired and he was rather rude...plus when he came out with the line of guitars that he said if Guild was around in the 30's this it what they would have been...They where worlds about as Guild had hired mostly ex Epiphone workers not Gibson workers.

Reverend Mikeymac,

I love the tone of the JCL.  It has always had a deep, mature tone,  different than regular L09 models I played.  It has been played a lot in the 10 years I have had it, and if anything, it sounds even better than when I first got it.  Here is a recent song I recorded.  There are no effects added, just recorded straight into a Snowball microphone.

Ever since I bought my first Larrivee, last February, I am having a hard time finding other guitars that I like as much. I mean I have gone and played some expensive Froggy Bottom, Goodall, Collings, Huss & Dalton, Martin, etc...  None of them made me want to get rid of my L-03 let alone my LV-10 50th. The 1977 L-35 I bought this year has me not playing my Cordoba C9 so it is for sale. It also brought me to my senses when I was about to buy an Esteve 8 Classical, "Hand Made in Spain" guitar. I still want a Spanish made classical. But I think I want a 12 string more. I am not really playing my L-03 much. The LV-10 with the EIR and Austrian "Moon" Spruce top has a much richer voice and the nut width fits my hand perfectly. The L-03 is a custom with a 1 11/16 nut. I have issues with it and i am going to be selling/trading it to help fund a 12 string. Once again, I will most likely count on Larrivee to deliver the goods sight unseen or heard.  I am thinking about an L or possibly LV,  09/10 12 string. I really like Rosewood.

So, I don't have a favorite non-Larrivee guitar at this time.  :cheers

I don't own my favorite non Larrivee, but I'm happy knowing it's got a good home. It's a McKnight OM-D (4.75" deep) dubbed "The Cigar" with wenge back and sides with a lutz/western red cedar double top. It's a close second to my OM-03R which Tim McKnight played a part in the acquisition as well as giving it a good setup.

Post by: bino on August 12, 2017, 06:07:41 AM
Wow.

Really tough question and a good one.  Of the guitars in the stable, it's probably hands down the Morgan OM.  Action is superb, sound is great, she's a looker for the plain OM, but man that mahogany.  She plays great, too, and that OM size.  If you love Larrivees like I love Larrivees, then you owe it to yourself to tryout your favorite size and wood of a Morgan Guitar.But, the 1977 Guild D40 really, really sounds great plays very nice.  As their slogan boasts, "Guilds ... Made to be Played!"  I love that guitar and both guitars are suited for different types of music and both guitars are set up really nice.  As you can see from my signature I am partial to Guilds.  I love them.  Now, favorite guitars that I do not own and are not a Larrivee ... hmm ... I am a humble man of simple means ... so this list would include if I could afford anything ... a Martin D18, a Guild D55, and another Morgan.  I do not need any $4K-$5k guitar, not that I would not take one if it was given to me, but I am really not that material and kind of know what I want and realize that I am no Leo Kottke or Merle Travis or anything.  Just a Bino having fun.   :guitar :wave :wink:

There arent many photos of josh later in his life. He died about a year after his endorsement with ovation.  I dont know why his endorsment deal would make you laugh, but i suspect its ignorance of josh white and his importance during the 30's thru the 60's.

He was a legend during the time. He was the first black american to have an endorsement for guitar.  He was a close friend and confidant of president roosevelt and played at his and also pres lyndon johnson's inauguration. He was the first black popular music artist to have a national concert hall tour. He was the first back artist to give a commqnd performance at the white house in 1941. It was so good, he was invited back for 5 more command concerts. Jfk invited him to a tv special called dinner with the president where jfk said he listened to joshs records and how they inspired him.  He did broadway, films, radio and tv shows at home and internationally. For decades, he was one of the leading artists in blues, spiritual, protest, folk and negro music.  Ive only scratched the surface of how important, popular and influential this man was.

Today in a shop I played a new design 000-18 and an 0-18 - loved the 000; the 0 just didn't have quite the right bass (but different strings might have helped). Made me think that the 00-18 might just be the Goldilocks guitar - "just right."

So you totally missed my point. Nothing against either White or Ovations, I merely said that if he actually played one, you'd be hard pressed to prove it. Wow you found a photo! How far down did you have to scroll?

G'day mate,
From what I've heard the new series 00-18's are backordered heavily. No chance of seeing one here in Australia til the US orders are filled so I just pony'd up for what was probably the last new 00-18V in existence. No regrets, it's a great guitar.

Re: Josh White
So... after all the talk about Josh and his guitar.... looking up stuff I found the long video from when he played in Sweden, I think it is really cool.
This guy could really play well. And sing well too. Great stuff. Thanks for bringing it up.

The sound on that concert is amazing, considering I don't see any mics on him or the guitar (I'm sure there's a boom hiding somewhere, but it's well hid). He's getting a lot of sound out of that little Martin (and the stand up bass sounds nice, too).

I posted a couple Godin's on this thread, here's a couple more I play.

The "Artisan TC" is a bit of a rare bird (all hand made using the best materials) to start with.
 This particular one is a proto-type, and has no serial number. It's dead mint, from early eighties, and a real beauty.

The "Flat Five" is another discontinued model, but they are simply terrific guitars, lovely build, (great maple), semi-acoustic, and note the 24 fret neck.
