Good thing we don't have to stick to one, I guess. Lord of the Strings, indeed. Besides, some say that it's the singer not the song.

A very unfair question-----like asking someone
who loves money which dollar bill he would keep
If he could only keep one :P

 I am fairly new to the Larrivee brand and love them
to death,yet out of all the guitars that I have
owned and played,If I could only keep one,It would
have to be my D-18GE.I hear that they are all good
but I think that I got an exceptional one.

Mike, I almost feel like I'm tracking mud on the floor here, but you have one great guitar here. I love my D-03 *W to death. But, the Martin D-18's totally rock. The perfect guitar would be a little bit of Larrivee mixed in with a little bit of Martin's D-18, but that would mean owning only "one" guitar.  :o
We can't have that, can we? There would be rioting and guitar players turning over cars in the streets. It would be craziness.
I think it is healthy to have several guitars to trip over along the road of life... :lol:

It would probably be a Larrivee SD-50, although I haven't seen one yet.  I did play a SD-60 and found it to be "to die for", and can only wonder how much better it might be in mahogany.

If I had to pick one, it would be the one that I was stupid enough not to get,  a used Breedlove CM, I think all Walnut, which when strummed really sounded like it was Pete Townsend playing power chords. The chords literally rumbled throughout your chest cavity and hurt they were so powerful. After nine years, I really wish I had dropped the $900 the dealer was asking for it and picked it up. I have never seen another guitar since which struck me so powerfully. (you have to understand that at one point I probably knew just about every Who song, so an acoustic sounding like something Pete Townsend would play, was considered a good thing).

Of everything I've played, if it came down to one, it would be a Martin 000-28 Norman Blake, without hesitation. Brazilian, if I had a choice.

It would never happen since I have no intention of narrowing my repertiore and style of play to fit what one guitar can do. I'm paring down to 3 guitars (LKSM, McAlister 00, Martin D-18GE) but I could justify another 12 string strung light at concert pitch.

No way could i be happy with only one acoustic guitar. I absolutely MUST hane a 6-string and a 12-string. If i could have one of each, they would be:

6-string - Huss and Dalton OM custom that's at Mass Street Music. All the spectacular tone I could ever want, responsive to a light touch and growls when you dig in. Pretty easy on the eyes, too.

12-string - A Breedlove Classic XII in Macassar Ebony and spruce that I played in a music store (I forget the name) in Atlanta a few years ago. Everything I've imagined the perfect 12-string to be.

But since both of these guitars are (were) pretty far north of $3K, it ain't likely to happen :<>

With my current stable, it's definitely the SD-50.  What a magnificent guitar!

But come August, this new Martin might be taking over.  On order:

At fist glance I thought you wrote mahogany sucks. Now that would have been big news.
