My next door neighbor will turn 100 in July and he still grows a big veg garden every year and shovels his own snow, he'll probably attend my funeral.  He never smoked or drank and he only eats at mealtime.

   This thread has as many pages as the F-IV thread. And I'm 57 years old. You add those two together and what do you have?

  OK let's get some serious mileage outta this vanity thread.

          So how is that Gallagher?  I bet you play it more than all your other gits. Am I right?

 Oh you cut to the quick. But good and timely question. 1st off if I had to only keep one, it would be the L-10. Also I want to be clear. though yes I've complained about Larrivee's cust service and some quality issues, like factory fret settings, my love of that guitar is wide and deep. It's unconditional on both a practical level, like sound, playability, versitility, to appearance, to personal and emotional and a chest that contains my history, good and bad. Not unconditional because I would love it in spite of problems but unconditional because it has no conditions to not  like!                     
    I think the L-body and symetrical bracing design was one of the great innovations in acoustic guitar building. It is so responsive, which to me means this. Depending on how you play it, it gives different sounds. It can be soft or it can be a stinging blues machine depending on where and how you strike it with right hand and how much you dig in with left hand.
 So why did I even want another guitar? Well I didn't for over 25 years. But I've got a bluegrass vien that runs pretty deep mixed in with all my other loves. Without disecting it as much as I could, here's one of the main things. This isn't going to be a perfect discription but maybe you'll get the idea. First, the easy one. The Gallagher is louder for rythm.  The L-10 isn't quet, but the G-50 is loud. The L-10, particularly on the bass strings, is more articulate, and I guess you could say brighter. If I'm pounding out bluegrass rythm. or even softer country, when I do my bass runs they stand out clear. That could be a good thing but what I'm looking for in that situation is more like laying a warm blanket under the lead instruments and singer(s). Not to stand out. It's like you don't miss it til it's gone. It smoothly ties everything together. You can still push and pull the feel of song, but it's not in your face. The different kind of bassiness smooths it out. Plus it just has that country or Bluegrass sound.
  So 2 instruments, 2 functions. The L-10 is more versitile.
Which one do I play more? I have been playing the Gallagher a good amount but that's for a couple reasons. I'm playing country rock type of stuff a lot with lady, so it fits pretty good plus she not that good of a guitar player and the Gallagher does that smoothing out thing well. Also I've been making a point of really learning the instrument and what it can do. And L-10 was gone since thanksgiving. HOWEVER For the last 6 days I've played only L-10!  I can hardly discribe what it's like now. Mark is very, very good with frets, saddles, nut. I told him to go all out. It has stainless steel frets. He spent 3 days on guitar. That included putting in new I beam and rearranging configuration. (it has an under saddle too) But basically 2 days on doing a set-up by someone who's very good at it! It's like a new guitar. I'm not kidding. I started playing it differently as soon as I picked it up. The bass notes play so easily I started making chords up the neck on bass strings, that I'd never made before. It just gravitated me towards that. And they don't buzz either but they are at that perfect point where you can get a slappy sound out of them if you want. Also sanded on the fret board, made new saddle with each string smoothly compensated. Tweaked the nut. He really out did himself. The L-10 is also a shinging example of Larrivee's dovetail joints. 30 years old, no adjustable truss rod. Neck is straight, action low and plenty of saddle!  So I'll be playing the L-10 more for a while for sure.
  The 000-60 is wonderful for bare finger pickin, but it's been getting the least playing lately because of what I've been playing.
