My little Daion has the new ebony fretboard and pyramid bridge... now is my turn to refret and inlay the mop lyra (or diapason) at the fifth fret. As soon as it will be finished I'll post the pictures.

Wow - ANOTHER group in one forum which suits me alongside the 12 string group and the Crafter group.

As someone who has 3 small body guitars, I think I'm OK as a valid member of this group.

I have a Taylor GS Mini, a LAG S200PE parlour and a JHS Vintage VE8000 Paul Brett signature 12 string (parlour size).

I'm not entirely sure how I drifted towards a liking for small bodied guitars as up until a very few years ago, every guitar of any type that I owned, whether 6 or 12 string, had been a dreadnought or jumbo. I then found the LAG and really liked it. Then came the GS Mini which is definitely my favourite acoustic 6 string (I sold all the others apart from the LAG) and then most recently I bought the outstanding Paul Brett 12.

These are the three guitars - I've stitched together two separate photos to put all three side by side. Left to right: Paul Brett 12, Lag and then GS MIni

didn't an ex-president once ask: "how many is a brazilian?"

sorry in advance!! Couldn't help it

"Sure no one wants a brazilian?"

Ron - would you be referring to a guitar, supermodel, or wax?

Or all 3? ;-)

The Breedlove brazilian looks fabulous except for the bridge. Sure no one wants a brazilian?

Hi FloridaGull

No I didn't think you had bought it, but wouldn't blame you if you had.

Nothing wrong with Cort guitars, well made for the price, I had one a few years ago.

The Dana Bourgeois OM looks a fab guitar. So many great guitars out there.

"If you think this message has a tinge of jealously embedded, you would be right." - Derick, I hope you don't think I bought the $7000 Breedlove - we're trying to buy a house... ;-)

I didn't even buy a $3950 Dana Bourgeois OM - -

Dana Bourgeois Vintage OM

although, when I did go there a week before last Father's Day (2014), I did play it - and bought a $300 Cort L450-O... :-)

Yeah... but the prize too is fantastic! For that amount I should buy a six and a twelve... both of high degree.
