Will that be an Ergoplay or a Dynarette?

I currently own my most perfect guitar. When I upgrade some day, that one will be my most perfect guitar. I started on a horrible one but since then, everything is up.

I fell in love with Lorenzo Pimentel's work when I lived in Albuquerque. A few years ago I was able to order one. Rick Pimentel looked at my hand size, asked about repertoire. and asked about what woods I wanted. In April of 2011, it arrvied, and it is my perfect guitar. It sounds and looks wonderful. I look forward to every session with it.

I would say that there may be a perfect complement of two or three guitars depending on repertoire choices, and maybe solo vs duo or ensemble playing. I believe I will be close to that for myself pending a couple of upcoming acquisitions.. but I like buying guitars so I might not stop anyway :lol:

I like trying and listening to as many guitars as I can even if I am not going to buy them all.

Definition of perfection aside, our tastes do change and that can't always be quantified.

The perfect guitar for me is a copy of the Torres FE17 constructed by Michael Thames, seen and heard on youtube, beautiful build and the sound
is marvelous!

Cheers,

Humphrey

I also started on something almost unplayable. That one went on a Guy Fawkes night bonfire (long story).

Not so much this one 🌠🎼💥

A close friend of mine told me she loves her Hauser II so much she wants to have It put in the coffin with her when she dies. Since acquiring my HH III I can relate to her feelings!

If I happen to be in perfect mood all my guitars are perfect, each in its own way. If I'm in a picky mood, none of them is really good.

My guitar wishes that it had the Perfect Performer, or at least that I was the player today that I'll become in the years ahead--so that it could sing as much as it's capable of singing.
