I have a Klos carbon fiber travel guitar which is meh. But my twin brother made a great find yesterday and I had to snap it up—even if it is an old Gibson.
1928 L3 Archtop.

Gibo L-3 - oh I had one .. loved it but it had to leave me to help pay my first mortgage repayments back in '75.

Pics, or it didn't happen!

My very fave guitars are my Collings DS models but I also have a 1964 Martin D12-20 which was rebuilt by Martins in 1998 with a D12-35 trim.

and

a Santa Cruz "RS" "Roy Smeck" It has the most beautiful sunburst I've ever seen, and the tone has taken some time to come out, maybe because it was't played much for it first few years but it is wonderful now.

In addition to my Collings, I play Martin, Goodall, Taylor, S. Kinnaird, Bourgeois and my touring (overseas) guitar a Voyage Air OM Premier. No matter what happens, the VA holds its own and stays in the rotation as nothing else travels as well or sounds as good doing so.

In addition to a’93 D2H, a ‘03 SJ, and an MT2, I play a Goodall Grand Concert, a Ken Miller Koa 000, a Rockbridge SJ, and like Silly Moustache an Eastman AR 905. Some others as well, but these are my go-to guitars.

You’ve got a collection of great instruments!! In 1990 I had James Goodall build me a koa Grand Concert and what an amazing guitar it is. Currently residing at my daughter’s home!!

Continued success to you!!

In addition to my 2008 Collings CJ, I have a 2001 SCGC Vintage Jumbo, 1990 Martin 000-16, luthier built, custom Small Jumbo, Eastman E20-OMtc, and speaking of Eastman Archtops... a 2012 John Pisano AR880ce. Archtops are such versatile instruments, why play traditional music is my vibe... bert
