I'm in the fortunate position of having saved up a chunk of change for a new acoustic. I've played dozens of instruments and narrowed it down to two. The problem is they're pretty much night and day and I can only afford one for a good long while: a (2012) Gibson J-200 and a Martin 000-18 Golden Era.
In the ideal world I'd love to go home with both because they both do different things I love, but I'm in a position to buy one now and save for another year or so and get the other one so it's not that simple sadly.
My solo stuff is in the same kind of vein as Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, Jeff Tweedy, etc and I also play guitar in an indie-ish band that takes big influence from early-mid '60s pop.
Any thoughts/opinions you have would be very appreciated!!
