I have an all mahogany telecaster being made for me by Graham Drew at Drew and Sebastian. Should be done in a few weeks. That's my last guitar purchase for a long time unfortunately. My gas has done it's damage.

Well, I've got killer Larry's now:  Forum IV and SD-60BZ and they just about complete my guitar tone interests.

Another guitar might be a Taylor of some other wood or style.

My next one will definitely be a Larrivee. I need to get off my butt and sell some gear so I can finance a customized lefty C-09.

Don't need one, but really want a Lancaster someday, too: Shoreline Gold, HSS, rosewood board please!

Great question. I'm undecided. If I go for a Larrivee then it’s probably an L09 or L05MT (or, time to try an OM perhaps?). However, I crave variety in my life and am considering trying out a different tonal signature altogether. Current thoughts:

Every time I’ve played or heard a Jimmy Moon creation I’ve connected with the sound, and the feel of the neck. Probably the most consistently pleasing  to my ears and hands next to a Larrivee (I also have a thing for ziricote): http://www.moonguitars.co.uk/index.php/acoustic-guitars/custom-series/c-z3/  

Also, I played one of these Stonebridge models and it knocked my socks off. http://www.guitarvillage.co.uk/product/6752-143/Stonebridge-GS23CR-Cutaway-New-Natural-Inc-Case.aspx  

If I gave into temptation and went all ‘custom’ then this is on my radar (but need to find one and test drive): http://www.kinkadeguitars.co.uk/the-model-p

This will probably include trading in one of the herd and some good old fashioned saving. It’s likely to be the last for a while unless fortunes and house-space change for the better.

I'm really GAS'ing for a 000-60TSB or an L-05MT.

The 000 may have to be a custom as I don't know if I could get used to the large nut width. 1 3/4" is about as big as I think I can manage.

After seeing gitnoob's SD50 TSB for sale a while back, I suddenly got a hankering for one of those.  As always, it's a money issue or selling my Larrivee OM.  sigh...

      I'm thinking more and more of an all Mahogany Larrivee OM. A 12 fret would be nice, maybe a forum 1 or 2 if one comes up. But I would have to sell something else first. I miss my all hog Forum IV and really would like an all hog model again.

Owning an OM03 maple and having owned an LS09 maple either would be a great choice.

Mine will probably be something else. I love Larrivee guitars but I think it is nice to have some variety between builders if you own multiple instruments. I am quite happy with my '98 OM-10 but would like a different sound to compliment and contrast it.

A Larrivee of course. Not sure exactly what or when, but those new 12 fret all mahogany om's sure look right.

For my next guitar to be another Larrivee it would have to be "interesting"
What qualifies as "interesting":

Rosewood OM 12 string
Rosewood OO
Cedar/Walnut  in an L or smaller
One of the Cedar topped Parlors over at Wildwood.

A Walnut/Cedar OO or Rosewood/Spruce  OM-03-12  would be at the top of the list.  A forum guitar in such a configuration would obviously count as "extra interesting"

Otherwise the next guitar will probably be a vintage Guild 12-string, or maybe another Rainsong.  (I'm really appreciating not having to humidify the Rainsong)


Now, who want's to put together an OM-03R-12 or OM-04-12  Forum guitar?

I've been checking out Furch/Stonebridge for a while now but there's this particular LS-10 that has caught my fancy  drool I haven't got the luxury of trying them out though....

I had a fleeting affair with a Rainsong 12 string at NAMM back in 2010.  Just touching the strings made her sing.  Someday....

Being that my LS10 is my main gigging guitar you'd be very happy with one.
