RE: how many guitars do you have? (in reply to callistoluna

Just the one at the moment, a seventies Ricardo Sanchis Carpio which had been in an accident, which i restored.

Although i make them, I'm always flattered when someone wants to buy them and so I always sell. I rarely have a guitar of my own making. It infuriates my wife who thinks I'm crazy.

Is that the Panama Rosewood one? That one looks a gem of a instrument.

***
I own 3 acoustics (one crap one, one ok 6 string, one nice 12 string), 3 electrics (1 Hagstrom, 1 Telecaster, 1 vintage Gibson) and a cheap classical guitar.

I definitely have too many. I need to cull the collection, right now I only play the Hagstrom, the classical and the string acoustic. Most of them are quite cheap, crap and from my experience selling guitars has been a bit of a hassle (being a lazy man I avoid such hassles!).

Wow: Gerundino is one of the very best: a great compliment to Anders.

RE: how many guitars do you have? (in reply to tijeretamiel

@tijeretamiel,

Yes, it is the Panama

@Morante,

It is indeed a great compliment to Anders.!
Maybe a little explanation is on his place, not everybody have tried a Gerundino.

The Gerundino sounds increadable good, the same sound as you can hear at Azahara from Paco Peña.

I like that sound a lot, the Gerundino have a long sustain. Nowadays not so common for a flamenco guitar.

Because of that, the Gerundino is more difficult to control, it is good possible, but it takes a while to get used to the Gerundino.

The tension of the strings is less than f.i. an Anders Eliasson. also the Gerundino is rounder and bigger.
This gives the guitar a totally different attack. ( left and right hand)
So the Anders is very nice, tight to play. Ofcourse with less sustain, my taste is a bit longer sustain, and a Negra compensate the lesser sustain it a bit in sound.

Because the Anders feels very nice to play, and is easy to control, I play better, feel more comfortable, and therefore even maybe sound better.
because I have not to pay attention for controlling at what I am doing. So that have become my favorite.

This is all pretty personal taste wise etc., and I have had a lot of guitars, my oppinion have chainged over time too.

Peter.

RE: how many guitars do you have? (in reply to krichards

I have 3 and 3/4ths guitars. An Antonio Loriente Marieta classical, Francisco Navarro Concert Flamenco (blanca), Yamaha CG171SF and 3/4ths of a Troutie blanca (damn, i need to finish that darn thing).

The Yamaha hangs on the workshop wall and is available to bang on when not making saw dust. The Marieta is in the living room and is played during the day or early morning. Finally, the FN is in the upstairs loft where I can make a lot of noise without disturbing everyone.

Sounds like, from reading a different thread, I need to get one more for the bathroom :)

6 plus....

5 are steel strings of different styles, 1 classical, and 1 flamenco blanca under construction. I play using a pick and fingerstyle and have lately been reaquainting myself with classical and flamenco.

From your picture and the amount of guitars, I figured it is not a matter of "like", it is a matter of "owning".

In order of purchase

A Fylde Fallstaff circa 1976 six steel string.
Another "classical" guitar the brand of which escapes me (something like Armano), but actually quite a nice sound, around 2000
A Bruguet circa 2007 classical
An Antonio Raya Pardo blanca, circa 1997, purchased 2011
A Conde blanca (but actually orange), purchased 2011

I seldom play anything but the two blancas. I think it's love.
