Went to sweetwater today, unsure if I could find a guitar that I liked (I'm picky). But boy did I! It was the first time I tried a mahogany top, and I seem to really love the sound. In that category, options are limited, but I'm quite happy with my Taylor 526. Take a look. (These are pics of the actual guitar. I got to choose among several of the same model. This had the best grain/looks.)

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

hmmm, I would think an all mahogany guitar would be very bright since my mahogany sides and back/spruce top is way brighter than my rosewood sides and back/spruce top. Then again we're talking about the top so it would be mahogany vs. spruce.

Well, rosewood is notoriously dark, and Taylors are notoriously bright. No conundrum here.

If you'd like to hear a solid mahogany top, you can probably find one at your local GC, in the form of Fender's, "Tim Armstrong Hellcat". If you want really, really, bright, I suspect you'd find it in the new Tim Armstrong Hellcat 12 String.

@TS, HNGD!
