    I've got a Fleetwood electro-acoustic (200e?) and think it looks, sounds and plays great. It may be a bit of a no-namer but I wouldn't swap it for any off the list.

    I have a Yamaha 12 string that I really like a lot...I also have a Yamaha 4 string bass which I played for about 10 years on the road before trading for a Fernandez 6 string bass...It all depends on your taste and style....Just play!! That's the key!!!!!

    I personally like Takamine. I have a 99 ltd. ed. "The Mountain" version. Beautiful inlay hand crafted sound hole, small body, small neck and great sounding.

    not on the list but i play a usa ovation balladeer. Better action than a lot of electric guitars out there and the sound is great. I used to have a takamine so i voted for that.

    I own a Lowden O25 and thing it sounds great amplified at gigs. It retains a grwat acoustic sound.

    My Taylor 310 gets the job done just fine for me, even for slap and touch acoustic playing. But I lust of Breedlove Guitars, most gorgeous guitars I have ever seen, I can only imagine the tonality those things will project if they sound half as good as they look.

    I just got a Dean Exotica 12-string in tigers eye! Absolutely one of the best looking and sounding guitars ive ever seen

    Like the old Takamines.

    Surprised you don't have Guild or Ovations on here.

    Overall, I really liked my former bandmates Martin acoustic.

    I have a Maton. They have a reputation as being the best acoustics made in Australia.

    I would love to try a Taylor

    My Friend has a 6 and a 12 string Maton, they are great guitars too, I should have included them in the poll

    I have a Seagull acoustic, made in Canada. It's beautiful but I'd really like a Lowden!

    Dare I mention Washburn?

    I have a J6 archtop and a Cumberland flattop ( J28SCEDL I believe ) ... I shopped hard before buying the latter ... At discount cost $619 and I liked it better than some very, very expensive guitars I tried out ...

    Some owners have described the tone as a bit bright ... perhaps, but I like it, and the neck and action on both these guitars is exceptional ...
