my personal thouight on this matter is as fallows....99.9% of the "mojo" comes from the
person who is playing the guitar. ive played
wood boxes that ive fallen in love with. including a old classical martin that dad has and my woodbody reso. the guitar has some effect on the proformance but most is the player. ill be the first to admit that my playing does no justice to the guitars i own...just my thoughts...jason

I reread...I fall into that maybe :)

Well written article. It really does show the fueled passion you have for the guitars and music.

Electronics have really changed everything. I've heard many a Martin or Bling-Encrusted Botique Guitar that sounded like absolute crap in the PA, destroyed by the player or the soundman or both - rare tropical woods not withstanding. I can get any of my Ovies to sound exactly the way I think an acoustic guitar should sound. So why in the world do I have to wrestle with a Martin and pay extra for the privilege? Answer: I don't.

Dobro, I tried to read it, but you've GOT to put in a few paragraphs or line breaks.

Its just a mass block of text and really uncomfortable to scroll through.

I think you would interpret as "bad" the following scenarios, no matter how good/bad they actually sounded. For example:

CSN&Y playing unplugged all using Ovations.
Glen Campbell playing acoustic using a Gibby J-50.
Eric Clapton MTV unplugged playing Layla on an Elite.
Jimi Hendrix playing a PRS.

See what I mean?
No, I don't see what you mean.

Any of those scenarios would sound great. Where does the 'bad' come it to it?

You gotta remember, we're musicians. So, most of us are so ADD that we'll - hey have you seen the new James Bond flick?

I noticed a reference to the FD14. Google tells me that it's a "Folklore Deluxe"; I see some very strong opinions on it here but have NEVER seen or heard one. Is it comparable in power to an ancient Balladeer or Legend? How about the vaunted Adamas U681T? I have a DVD on which Larry does some great playing on the latter (Super Guitar Trio = Coryell, Di Meola, Lagrene)

Figure the FD14 as a wood topped (cedar) version of a U681.

Thanks Moody. Do you have an impression of the effect/sound of the cedar top?

As for the earlier post: now there are breaks in the text, if that means anything to ya.

.... that can't be over-driven like many other Cedar tops under violent pick attack. It's also little warmer/more mellow than the U681T.

Drawback for you, Greg, would be 12fret non cutaway...

Dobro, Jeff's pretty well called it with his post.

As to your breaking up your post with paragraphs, it didn't bother me before as I had English all through high school and college and I read and talk English good (I thought I write in a way that Jeff W could understand).

Understanding English isn't the problem, not even 'American' English. It's my eyesight that's the problem!

And thanks Dobro, that's much easier to keep track of where I am. Will read it after lunch.

I think breaks are good. So are pictures (I stopped loading the blog with images: too hard to pull up).

Hey, my ancient Legend has no cutaway, my Di Meola does but I still stick to the superior vintage axe. Got a long pinky...
