Acoustic Guitar Community

Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.

I wanted to compare my three small bodied guitars in open position with a flatpick. In order they are: Collings C-10 - deep body - adi/mah; Martin 000-18GE - adi/mah; Collings OM - short scale - Koa/sitka. The guitars are in FGDGBE tunning. All three guitars have the same type strings and i tried to emphasize the low and high registers for comparison purposes. I really appreciate your feedback - it is great to hear from other players, thanks!

First of all, I've appreciated all your videos. Great playing and thanks for sharing!

Both Collings project better than the Martin but I am more partial to the OM. While the bass response of the C10 is superior, there is a clarity and separation in the OM that brings out the melody better. They are all three wonderful guitars but my "vote" goes to the Collings OM.

First....flatpicks rule. Cool.

The Martin was the most seductive of the three. A bit darker, sweeter, more mellow. It reeks of sex. It's the one you can live with for a lifetime. Keep coming back to....

The Collings were both nice....Martin for me.
I have to agree with David, the Martin just sounds best to me.
It also looks best to me (plain, simple, no fancy adornments or paintjob).
thanks gentlemen for watching and sharing your impressions.
