regarding shapes, I've discovered how much I prefer the OM/auditorium body style over the dreadnought. more comfy, and the curves are sexy as hell. If I bring my S&P dread to a jam for volume, I really notice the difference after a couple of hours of playing. No discomfort from the Larrivée OM. Never tried a mini jumbo, but the folk was comfortable, too.

Doesn't someone here have a blue AMI? seems familiar.

Comment by Robert Williamson on December 3, 2013 at 9:03am

im sure there a few old boys here that would enjoy this tear-jerker.

Angels Sing, the film is directed by Tim McCanlies, and stars Harry Connick, Jr., Connie Britton, Chandler Canterbury, Fionnula Flanagan, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.

slides off? it JUMPS

i have video to prove it :)

i like the way the  NE mini-jumbo sits on my knee

i cant say the same for my epiphone specialII .. its bottom heavy

I ve played a Crafter Cedar Jumbo, while i did not like the dull sound, i did like having a guitar as big as a dread, stay on my lap!

Comment by Dave Fengler on December 2, 2013 at 3:25pm

I've heard the dread shape can be like hugging a refrigerator to some people.  While I don't mind the dread shape, my Seagull folk is easier to hold.  And my Seagull parlor is like playing a steel string ukulele.  All I need is a jumbo!

But I see your point, the dread slides off your leg too easily.

Comment by Robert Williamson on December 2, 2013 at 2:41pm

i have never liked the dreadnaught shape (cover your soundholes S6's!!)

right now, im think 2 new guitars... Mahogany 6 string jumbo/Concert?Folk anything with a real waist and a pair of fine bouts!

and a 12 string, Jumbo/Concert

and not blue!

Comment by FloridaGull on December 2, 2013 at 12:36pm
Yes, the BLUE does kind of "burst" out at you...
Comment by Dave Fengler on December 2, 2013 at 12:30pm

Isn't it Blueburst?  NICE!!

Comment by FloridaGull on December 2, 2013 at 12:27pm
