Martin and Taylor look like two acoustic super brands nowadays.

It’s like Fender and Gibson in the world of the electric guitars.

At least this is my personal humble opinion.

  1. “It’s like Fender and Gibson in electric guitars.” Gibson also makes some mighty fine acoustic guitars; ever hear of the J-200? And Guild (owned by Fender) also makes some of the best acoustic guitars out there.

    1. Agree. And I truly believe there is a lot of wonderful acoustic instruments made by multiple companies in many countries. I just used it as an example, of what first came to mind. Thanks anyway for the input.

  2. I own a Taylor 314 and Larrivee LV03. I have played for 40 years and have owned many different guitars. I can say I agree with you about the tones and richness of the sounds of most guitars. My Taylor is older with the fishman pickup and my Larrivee has the LR Baggs pickup. The Taylor is much more mellow and I love it for open tuning songs. The Larrivee is bright and as biting as I want it to be but still has a great bottom end for finger style. As far as preferences, it all boils down to the hands. One players hands will fit the Martin, the next player will love the Taylor the next, Larrivee and etc. I agree with Admin. I love having both Taylor and Larrivee. I don’t care for Martin personally but it’s all about choice.
