OK, this should be easy. Guitars you own. Music you play. Players you like. I currently own three guitars, two of which I keep at school. I have Seagull six and twelve string guitars. Both are the more basic models pictured below. Seagulls are manufactured in Quebec, and I've heard are quite a bit more expensive in the US. They're very strong -- good for strumming hard -- and have a nice rich tone. These two babies haven't given me any trouble. The 12-string was not the hassle to tune that I was expecting. My only electric instrument is a 1965 Gibson ES 120T. This model was manufactured throughout the sixties and part of the seventies. It was intended to be a good quality instrument on a budget. To cut costs, it was built without a cutaway and the electricals were mounted on the outside, protected by a hollow plastic pick guard. Mine's all original, except that I swapped out the old pegs for nickel ones -- the originals were slipping. It sounds pretty decent played without the amp. Here's a review of a 120T I grew up in the seventies playing a lot of James Taylor and Harry Chapin. The players I really admire and enjoy listening to include Chris Smither, Bruce Cockburn and Eric Clapton. I've seen both Smither and Cockburn several times.
