How Many Guitar Players Are Prowling These Pages?

So the quest continues.....

I've always had a desire/curiosity for an ovation but wanted a good one. I stumbled across this beauty on ebay for cheap. In the stores up here itd sell for well over $1000. The one I'm looking at is MUCH less than that. Only because someone bought it. Didn't like it then returned it with a broken string and some minor pick scratches.

I have been taking lessons again.

I mostly play on a Martin acoustic, or a Mosrite Celebrity elecrict/acoustic(a good quality copy of Gibson ES335 like BB King played). The Mosrite is a mid-1960's Celebrity, made in Bakersfield, Ca. The neck on it is wonderful!

I've always been a fan of the Gibson ES series guitars.

I have to say though, that recently I have been very impressed watching Youtubes of Charo playing Flamenco style. She is an amazing guitarist... Have thought about try Flamenco. Maybe.

That's great. I've never tried that style either.

Here's today's song for me. I have a binder started of the recent songs I've been working on. This will show you what style I've been playing lately.
(btw. Looks like he's playing the same guitar as me)

I scored another deal on ebay today. It's a takamine gn93ce. It's upper mid range as far as quality and price.

I first played a takamine about 20 years ago and immediately fell in love with the sound. I knew eventually I'd have one. I bought my first one about 5 years ago as a reward to myself for finally ditching the ex. It was my main home guitar and sounded and played awesome. I pained me to sell it last month to fund the Taylor. I went on ebay the other day and searched for a takamine. This one just spoke to me. After reading a few reviews and watching some sound demos on YouTube, I threw in a low bid on it and won. Its a gn93ce.

I finally got to the border on friday to pick up my new guitar. She's a beauty. I love the wood bindings on the body and neck. Nice high gloss finish. My taylor still sounds and looks purdy but she's got competition now. The taylor does sound and play better and it should considering it costs about 1k more.

But for a basic home guitar to leave on the stand the takamine is perfect. I like the smaller grand auditorium body vs the bigger dreadnaught bodystyle. I do have a couple of them as well though. Today's task will be to find a soft case for the tak. It does fit the taylor case perfectly as they are almost identical in size. But I want a lighter case to transport the taylor to and from the church weekly.

This is my second takamine. They make quality instruments for a great price.

Different sounds need different guitars :smile:

One for sacred music
one for jazzy music
one for country music
one for classical music
And the list goes on :w00t2:

How'd you guess? Lol. Actually it's more like one is my main stage guitar. One for at home. One for at camp. A 12 string. One as a teaching guitar for the kids. And one I'm still in the middle of building.

I still want to ad an ovation to the stable eventually.
