By that I mean, which one do you actually own and play?
For me, it's a Goodall Pacific parlor.  Quilted maple with a cedar top.  Perfect couch guitar.

When I'm not playing my OM-03R or my L-10 I usually play my Guild GAD-JF-30 Spruce/Maple Jumbo;  It's got a big boomy sound that I like for particular songs.  Un-like your parlor though, it's not a good "couch guitar".

The gibson lg1.  Had since new.  Nice little guitar that is fun to play.  The parlor I picked up over the summer has cut into the LGs playing time somewhat as the new kid on the block. Don't play the classical much and little Martin mostly guards the closet..

Just picked up a 110 taylor, a good guitar.

My favorite that I dont have yet is a Collings D or a Santa Cruz D series.

Oh yeah.Someday.

For me its my Martin OM-21.  Super comfortable to play, and that great Martin tone.

Mine is my Collings OM2H.  It is just the right size and sounds unbelieveably good.

My Martin HD-28 probably gets the most play of of all because I generally use it for public jams and performing and some practice. My Telecaster would be there if Electrics count. I've parted with D-03, an Ovation and a Strat this year to make the ones mentioned and my OMV the main players.

Hands down, my Martin 000-28 Norman Blake.  Perfect size for couch picking and sounds almost as loud as a dread.  And it smells really, really good.

My favorite non-Larrivee is definately NOT one I would want to play sitting on the couch: my National Vintage Steel Delphi. For sittin' on the couch my pick would be my K&S Charlie Patton 000 size ladder braced guitar. Now that you got me thinking about which guitar I enjoy sitting on the couch with, maybe what I really need is a parlor (yes, keep on telling myself that I "need" a parlor). Just like I "needed" the National, just like I "needed" the new ukulele, just like I "needed". . . . .

Keith Adams classical in cedar and rosewood.
Truly the best sounding guitar I've ever played, and I got if for a song.

I'd have to say the Mcilroy A30c would be my favorite non-larrivee guitar.  It's comfortable to play and has a sound unlike any other guitar I've played.  I made a post showing the bracing pattern of the guitar a few weeks ago...maybe that has something to do with it.

Hi,
my fovorite non-L. guitar is a martin D-42. It has the "Martin"-sound and an old ´20s Lyon & Healey parlor, that sounds as old as it is - 80 years. And Larrivees are younger!
And I should mention my lovely Gallagher Ragtime Special from 1991.

I own a Larrivee C10 from 1991
a Larrivee OM 019 from 1992
a Larrivee L-09 from 1979
a Taylor 910 from 96

I used to have a lot others like
Santa Cruz F, Santa Cruz D/Pw, Taylor 512 C, Taylor K10, Taylor 510, Martin HD 28VLE, Manzanita OM, Blazer J-45, Yamaha APX 20, Martin 0017H from 1935

A second vote for the Martin 000-28 Norman Blake. Best sounding guitar I've  ever played. Oh ...  and it smells good, too!

I don't own one, but I have always appreciated the work over at McCollum guitars. My current non-larry favorite is my Les Paul. It is a fun change of pace to go to an electric.
