Thanks, Emanuele, it's useful to get the spellings right. I've also added a second "a" in Traphagen.

Thank you Fred, I've made the update. You didn't say which anniversary the Paco Santiago Mario was, so I left out the model for now. I see he has at least a 30th and a 40th anniversary model.

I just learned that Sharon Isbin had a Manouk Papazian (student model).

João Luiz and Douglas Lora of the Brazil Guitar Duo.

They play Sergio Abreu guitars when performing together.
At one time they played on James White guitars.
( Douglas plays a seven string guitar.)

Joao also owns guitars by:
Phillip David Hirschy '79
James White
Paul Fischer '93

I believe Tal Hurwitz is missing.

I know that he sometimes uses a Andrea Kirmse Cedar Double Top. Not sure if that is his main instrument, though.

Thanks Chuck. Could I just make sure I understood a couple of things correctly? When you say the first time that Douglas plays a 7-string, do you mean a 7-string Sergio Abreu there? And when you say it the second time, do you mean that they each have a Paul Fischer, and that Douglas's is a 7 string? Or was that an editing glitch? It does look a bit strange.

And I haven't come across luthier Phillip David Hirschy and can't find him in Google, so can I just check that the spelling is correct? There are a couple of mentions of a North American luthier David Hirschy that come up on Portuguese sites. Is that the one?

Paul Fischer '93( Douglas plays a seven string guitar.)

Yes, it's a glitch.
Joao Luis purchased my '93 Fischer that I listed here for sale.

Douglas has a seven string White and Abreu that I know of.

There's not much info on Hirschy

I just re-edited the post.

My Irish friend Pat Coldrick is a professional CG player with 2 albums under his belt and though I'm not sure of the exact model I know that he plays a Takamine with cutaway. Last I heard he also had a special guitar handmade for him by a Luthier.
Edit, just discovered it's a Takamine 132 SC

Thanks, Larry, now added. Pat is a member here, as it happens, though he hasn't been around for a while.

I posted this on other thread before:

Someone actually made a compilation somewhere of the # of guitar. A couple of incompletes: Romeo Di Giorgio, although borne in Italy, he made guitars in Brazil since 1908(The Di Giorgio factory is 107 years strong!), and made a guitar for Augustin Barrios.

Turibio Santos also played: Ignacio Fleta(70's/80's), Shigemitsu Sugiyama(80's+, and Jó Nunes(current)...
