I’ve never played an old one, but this guitar kicks some serious butt
So far I really like it, except for a classical it's the only acoustic that I've owned that isn't a dreadnought or a jumbo. I still can't get over how lively and rich it is when I play it. I bought it from a kid who was going to university and decided he wanted to play fingerstyle, so he picked up a Gibson Keb Mo and a Gretsch 6122 1962 Country Gentleman... Not a bad place to start if you ask me.
And that one.
I ave tried one in a store & really liked how it worked for what I'd likely do on it.
Maybe I just need to keep saving up some money.
Taylor 412ce... classical pieces though !
Mostly my lam mahog, although dusted off my 12 string...really have to change strings on it. After a 2 yr hiatus dusted of some harmonica's, was never good, but like starting over now.
Waterloo WL-JK Rosewood
Day 2 with harmonica and 12 string (strummy campfire chord type songs). Coming back, can still do bendy notes, basically just follow chords in break with harmonica. Couple weeks I'll be back to where I was (meaning it's a crapshoot, could sound great, could sound like I stepped on a chicken, just never know) Forgot how much fun it is to play harmonica with the guitar.
That and the gretsch resonator.
Took the Loar out of the closet to take pics in order to stuff a "For Sale" ad :
What the heck, as I slipped my fingers behing the neck, she throwed herself in my arms,
I could not resist to sit on the bench and play her tenderly ?!?! Almost shed a tear...
Could not take any pic...
Nice one! I've been curious who on this board has a Waterloo. I've been pining for one of the smaller models, maybe a WL-14L. How is the JK treating you?
I quite enjoy it. The big neck feels good and I like the sound. When I hit it hard, it can really pump out some good thumping bass, but it has a nice dry articulation to it and plenty of high end. It comes with 13s stock, which I have maintained for the time being, although when I pick it up after playing electrics for a while, my fingers complain a bit. I do plan to eventually try lighter strings and see if it still has that authoritative sound.
Cool stuff I'm definitely interested in something with that dry articulation you mentioned. I hear a lot of differing opinions about the big V-neck and wish I could get my hands on any of their models here in Nova Scotia, but I've yet to see one new or used. Did you buy yours new, and did you have the opportunity to compare to any other models?
It seems I have not yet introduced my favorite guitar of all time! Here is my Sitka/Padouk SJ made by Marc Beneteau which I received from Marc back in Nov 2018. It's got a 25.75" scale to support lower tunings and some other personal touches. An absolutely deadly instrument that I'm lucky to own!:
I got it used from another member here. I had played the mahogany and I have also played the 00 models and they are really nice.
Gibson Songwriter Deluxe Studio and the Martin D18.
