    I dabble in guitar and really love acoustics. I have quite a few now. Here are a few:

    I play acoustics exclusively, mainly fingerstyle. I have a Seagull S6 and an Aria MSG-05 and another 10 at my parents house. Eyeing a Lowden for my next purchase.

    I mostly strum, but I also do a little fingerpiciking. It's just for fun, but I do love the way acoustics look and sound, so I kind of collect them too.

    I had an S6 with a cedar top. Great guitar, but I sold it a few years ago.

    Lowden's are awesome too. I have a Goodall that is my absolute favorite. I'll post pics of that later.

    I have a Seagull S6 and the cheapest full size Martin they make. I haven't taken the best care of them and they both need a good set up.

    I've heard nothing but the highest praise for Goodall, though I've never had the opportunity to play one living in NZ. That Stehr you have is stunning as well. What are the woods? Looks like zirocote and euro spruce, maybe adirondack. Goddammit it's beautiful.

    I learned on acoustic and have pretty much stuck with them. I've tried playing electric but I can't get used to it. At the moment I've got an Epiphone cj200ce. It's a great, low budget guitar. Really good for sitting around at home with your buddies

    Yes, you're close and thanks. It's Ziricote and Carpathian spruce. It's really nice.

    But, the Goodall is still the winner. It's a whole other level.

    After the Gibson J45 the Seagull is my favourite!I know there are many more expensive guitars and even better quality but you cant beat that overall quality & sound of the Seagull imo.

    Seagulls are excellent guitars. The day I bought mine, I played every single guitar in the shop including their higher end Taylors, Matons, Breedloves, etc. but it was one S6 that sounded sweetest to my ears. Every time I pick it up I'm blown away how rich and responsive it can be. For a guitar I bought for $300 it's amazing.

    back in 03' i bought this admira sevilla spanish guitar:

    [​IMG]

    it's not the best or most expensive guitar, but for the price, it has a really nice, full sound. and it has a really nice smell, because it has a solid cedar top. i am a horrible guitar player, but it's nice to mess around with it from time to time.

    I'm not quite sure the model but a band i used to work for had a Seagull 12 string and m8 he could make that thing sound better than any Martin or other big money acoustic i've ever heard.A non player could hit the strings and even then it sounded brilliant.Resonance,tone,feel,price i'll have the Seagull all day over most any guitar.Is that a picture of your guitar there m8?It's a beauty!

    Supposedly since Godin(seagulls parent company) manufactures their guitars out in bumfuck Quebec French Canada, they have access to good quality tonewood for cheap and that's how they're able to keep costs down but keep decent build quality. No I haven't posted a pic of mine here.

    These are my current two in rotation
