I have a few things the drive a guitar purchase for me. The first but not deciding is aesthetics... Does the guitar call to me and seduce me into picking it up.

and second, Now that i have picked it up, does it feel like it belongs in my arms. Is it comfortable with me...and I with it.

and third and most important, does it sing for me.

I can say for certain this happened for me with the N.E. Amber Trails and with the Martin GPCP5K.  Both were purchased 2ed time I played them. Now, I need a guitar with a tone in between those two.

So far I've only got to 2ed base with the Excursion Walnut Mini-jumbo. The one I tried hadn't been setup yet.

btw: Tony, i don't have an superfluous acoustics, all 5 get played daily, even if it just 4 bars. :) But if i get the Walnut, I'll thank you.

I agree that Walnut MJ is a beauty.  Looks AND sound wise.  Played one twice now.  If I had the room and money for an "extra", superfluous guitar, that'd be my first choice I thinkst.  8-)

If I got to eat my words about the pins after trying the snakewoods, you all will be the first to know

Changed strings on two guitars tonight - both Seagulls. Put d'Addario EJ16s on both, officially ending my excursion into EB ABs. Not that the EBs are bad strings, but they're not for me. My Maritime really appreciated the change of direction.... it had been the focus of the EB change. Really got to looking at pins - qstrings vibrate between nut and saddle. Pins definitely are not part of the vibratory path. They cannot influence sound. Still thinking about those snakewoods from Stew Mac....

That walnut mini jumbo was the one I nearly took home last year. The one I played was a very nice sounding and playing guitar. If are serious, playing one will seal the deal. Insread, I got the S6 Coastline Folk, because it was for my mom. Now I've got it back, and while its a great little guitar I'd rather have that walnut mini jumbo.....

While trying out banjo's during the week, it came back to me why i didn't keep mine back in the day. I declare, It is,  the most gawdawful,  uncomfortable, instrument to try to hold in your lap.

If i ever get one it would end up as a wall decoration. SO i vow to set my sights on my original GAS want..a Jumbo, maybe Guild, maybe 12, certain people here have turned my head on that! You know who you are..  :).

I wont forget about the Cedar S6 Concert Hall of course, and that Excursion non-CW Mini-Jumbo below looks mighty fine as well. This my limit, I swear!..3 more. That is all the empty hangers I got. 

Please...hold me to this... I beg you..

The lack of binding is an eye catching feature on both..

Alright, all this talk about bridge pins has got me looking at some genuine snakewood pins from Stew Mac..... If I order any I'll be sure to let you all know how wrong I was about pins ability to improve tone.......
