I have a CEO-7. I wish it was a slothead, but I don't want a 12-fret. I hate the junky tuners on it, otherwise great guitar.

I'm going to let the D-15sm Custom go as the neck is just too slender for me and it aggravates my arthritis. It's the Martin modified low oval, which I believe is their most popular neck shape these days. But in a Martin I need the Modified V, as in my D-18VS.<br /> <br /> Too bad, as the tone is really something else. Hard to find the right words to describe it, but "ethereal" might come close.

I'm with you on the Martin Modified V, great neck. I had a 15 Series 000 with the modified low oval. It sounded nice, but the neck was just a little thin front to back.

Martin is using the Low Profile neck on a lot of their standard guitars (D-35, D-28, D-45, etc.).<br /> <br /> I have the D-35, and also have a D-18, which has the Modified Low Oval - which is a bit heftier than the Low Profile (which I have on my D-35). The D-18 ahs the wider 1 3/4" nut (versus 1 11/16" on other Standards), but it's also definitely a bit thicker from front to back.<br /> <br /> I get along with both, but the D-18's Modified Low Oval is my favorite of the two. I can get along with a soft V, but I don't like hard V necks.

I'm also going to let my Eastman E10P Sunburst go. In fact, I'll post it over in the FDP Classifieds shortly.<br /> <br /> It's a great little guitar and I love the big ol' chunky neck. But we're moving soon and I want to reduce the number of guitars I have to haul to the new house in the new state.<br /> <br /> But once my cash flow recovers, I'd like to buy a Santa Cruz 1929 00 to replace the Eastman. The Eastman was an experiment to find out if I like the parlor size or not, and the answer is a resounding YES!

Yes, I sold that nice little Eastman parlor and moved to Colorado.<br /> <br /> Then I got to missing having a parlor guitar, and found a nice little Alvarez-Yairi PY-70. Sitka and rosewood, and it was a LOUD little thing, sounded great.<br /> <br /> But it had a rather slender neck, and I found myself missing that big ol' fat neck that the Eastman had. <br /> <br /> And then some guy shows up on Reverb with an Eastman that he wants to trade. He didn't care for that Eastman neck, too chunky for him. So we got to talking, and ended up trading. He's delighted with the Yairi, and I'm happy having a E10P in sunburst again.<br /> <br /> It needs a setup, and I'll throw some LaBella Silk & Steel strings on it and it will be good to go.

You're old. Then vintage. Then good!

That's a nice looking little guitar, congrats.

Thanks, mikey. Eastman does a nice sunburst.<br /> <br /> And I'll be back home over the holidays, will run it down to Dietze and have Rich tweak it a bit.

Yes, that's a nice sunburst. Enjoy that thing. <br /> <br /> I sometimes miss my E10P, but the nut width was a little too wide for most of what I play. It was great for classical style stuff and sounded very good.

What I really want is the Eastman E10PM. It is the same guitar with a mahogany top.<br /> <br /> Only made in 2012, and they didn't make many. Haven't seen one for sale in the year that I've been looking.<br /> <br /> But this one will do nicely in the meantime.

Very attractive guitar Ragtop. I'd be tempted to try something like that for the couch.<br /> <br /> Back on the thread topic, I played a Taylor K22e 12 fret slothead at the Taylor petting zoo in El Cajon back in October. The guitar was fantastic. I've never played a concert sized body that was so resonant and alive.

Yep, H101, that's exactly what I bought it for, and it's perfect.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> And "petting zoo"- lol!

I bought a Recording King 000 a couple years ago and it quickly became my go-to acoustic. Love the chunky neck. It sounds big too.<br /> <br /> It's a cheapie but a goodie.

Those Recording Kings are catching on, I hear nothing but good things.<br /> <br /> Would like to play one, but have never seen one in person.

As I am a lefty, i had to do the usual. Order it with the thought of returning it if I didn't like it. Needless to say, it stayed.<br /> <br /> It has a solid spruce top. It sounds and plays great. As usual, I had to file the nut slots a little. No biggie.<br /> <br />
