Over the course of about four years I reviewed over 500 guitars.
I lost count of the “I wish I had your job” comments on YouTube 🙂
So just for fun, I put this 2 minute video together to show you the 9 guitars I cherry picked while doing all of these reviews.
Plus I tell you what I use each one of them for.
Looking for Tony’s Polecastro’s official guitarsenal shirt? Well, it’s for sale here! Click below to buy it now…
I own one, a Guild M-20 w/ a D’A Nickle Bronze set and yeah, it’s toasty and stellar and real sounding. I went through a slew of small body Martins, Taylors and other makers and just found the M-20 to have the ideal neck profile for my hand. Very happy.
Tony,love the shirt, just a suggestion if you do another printing, I think it would be cool if you did the same design on th back with the manufacturers name, just a thought, be well
Hey Tony, I watched your video a few days ago with Andy Powers at Taylor Guitars. I’m surprised you don’t have a V brace now after seeing your responses to Andy’s explanation as to what the V brace has brought to acoustic guitar, then
playing with him.
Andy is amazing to talk with even if just over the phone. I have had that opportunity three times, twice before purchasing my K14ce Builders Edition, and once since. The K14ce is the latest to my collection of acoustics.
My second favorite is my 46 year old Guild D40 that I gifted myself for my 22nd birthday. I also have a Taylor GS Mini, Cordoba Classical, and a Yamaha in my collection.
I moved to Peru in 2004 after retiring and brought my HD35 with me that instantly didn’t care for the temperature and humidity changes. The neck started separating and a few braces began ratteling so I gave it to a really wonderful friend that visited me from Phoenix. After living in a humidity chamber for a few weeks and a few repairs, it is back to perfect and he enjoys it constantly. I’m happy he has it. I now have humidity control packs in all of my guitars…
Thank you for being Tony!
I use a Washburn 1970 D61 “Prairie Song” I begged it from E.U. Wurlitzer in Boston and they tried to sell me something else. I also had Martin D28-12 (1970 with gang sixes on each side). I owed money and had to give it up (WEEP!). Right now I want a Grusin. I’m poor,but what the hell. I’m richer by far with a satisfied mind.
