My 1997 Taylor 512.

Bought this one used from a local shop 8 years ago. Many other Taylors, and Martins have come and gone, but this one is very special. In my opinion the mid 90's Taylors were some of their best. My 512 weighs close to nothing, has the original fast Taylor neck and after 11 years of aging, the Mahogany/Engleman rings clear and true and is exceptionally loud for a small size guitar. My brother has a 1997 514c and it's just a sweet as my 512. Unfortunatly, IMHO, Taylor didn't adhere to the "aint broke, don't fix it" rule with some of their later innovations. Not meant to be a Taylor bash, just a personal observation.

I'm hoping the newer Taylor GC series with the "slim cut" neck might come close, though.

think I gotta change my answer .... there's a late 60s ES-335 that seems to have taken top spot for favorite non-Larrivee ... at least on the electric side of life .... that said, I still ain't got any acoustic non-Larrivees  bigrin

 If I played electric it would be one of these. I saw Justin Hayward using one in a way that made it sound like an acoustic amplified with finger picking , then he went to strumming and would switch back again to fingers , tucking the pick under his pinky. Nice style and great sound. I think the song was Tuesday Afternoon.

I don't own a Larrivee, but my dad's 90's Martin D-28 is exquisite.

I'm sure you all know what this looks like, but still:

Top spot guitar mother than my Larrivee.  It would have to be my Custom Zion Electric.  It is synth capable, has everything a lead guitarist would want, sounds fantastic and plays like a dream.

Not sure how to send a pic... Oh well, you can only imagine....

Regards,

Russ

As far as acoustics go, my McIlroy A25c. Simply stunning. Incredibly responsive (and the lightest guitar I've ever handled).

Yes, she is a beautiful guitar. Which is why I went shopping for a Larrivee, to have something really nice to play to save wear-n-tear on this Washburn. At this point I'm jonesing for a Washburn D84SW (Koa) or D82SW to keep it company.  Both of these models are US made. On the other hand, I'm so impressed with my Larrivee I'm looking forward to eventually getting another!

I have 2 that balance each other because of the woods. A spruce/RW Goodall and cedar/RW Breedlove. The Goodall is a jumbo concert and the Breedlove is a concert. I had a Larrivee OM and OO.

I love my Larri D, but the Webber I got this past Spring is a blast to play.

Before I got my Larrivée, I had two guitars made by the Godin family of companies ... a Seagull S6+ Cedar and a La Patrie Etude classical ... and like my Larrivée, they were made in Canada.

I have to say that my Favourite non-Larrivée Guitars are Seagull guitars made by Robert Godin .... Outstanding guitars - sound, looks, quality, and very affordable.
