I have been playing guitar for 32 years. I am Jazz trained, but have played progressive metal more than anything else. Well, life these days keeps me from having the time to play in a band, but I have found great satisfaction in writing music and recording it. Suprisingly though I have been writing neither jazz nor metal, but rather country music. I wont go into how I got interested in country, but will just say I am having so much fun. Only oneb problem, my Ibanez Joe Pass model archtop is no flattop when recorded, hence my post. I need a real nice acoustic for recording. I will be doing lots of strumming, fingerwork, and flatpicking solo work as well. I know that there is no acoustic that can do all perfectly but if it could do real well with all, I would be happy. I have played many different guitars but the choices are becoming overwhelming. I love how the Taylors play and how Martins sound. Recently played one of the martin performing artist series and it played and sounded great. Breedlove is definitely noy for me. I went to a high bend shop here in Pittsburgh (Acoustic Music Works) and got an arrogant attitude thrown at me rather than useful information. Played several collings guitars there and was +/- impressed. I know there are so many great guitars I just don't want to jump at the first thing that strikes my fancy. I need a bit of help with wood choices etc as well. Byb the way I would like to top out at $2500, but if the perfect guitar is more I will splurge. Lastly, the guitar will be used 99% of the time for recording. Thanks for any help you can give me as I feel very lost in the acoustic neighborhood.
