Thanks for putting this extensive list together!
The credit for that must go to former member Guitune, though he had to give it up 6 years ago as the updates had become too onerous. I agreed to step in at that point to deal with future updates rather than leave the thread to become abandoned and increasingly out of date, but without his knowledge and particular interest I am completely reliant on what members report, and unfortunately don't have the time to do any research to corroborate new entries.

I.e. My understanding is that Segovia didn't use the Yamaha GC series in such a way...
Again, players like Paco de Lucia used to play a main instrument for concerts and few other guitars when recording, even though he used to have many flamenco guitars at home (either gifts, or guitars for a sole domestic use). To mention all the instruments he owned could be deciving ...just my 2 cents obviously.
Fair point. I'm not sure exactly what guitune's aim was, but it would probably make sense not to list every single guitar a professional had ever played, or been given, but only those actually bought and/or used seriously in public or for recordings. As I said, though, I will have to leave it to members to agree amongst themselves which are worth listing, and if anyone has second thoughts about one they have suggested, I can remove it.
