    Default Poll - If there could only be one?

    There are WAY more than 10 AMAZING builders... but alas, the poll feature only supports 10 so if your favorite isn't listed choose "other" and let us know.

    If you aren’t seeing the poll on mobile, you can scroll to the bottom of the page and select “Full Site”. You can toggle back to the mobile view using the drop down menu on the bottom left of the page when you are done.

    Uhmm... Bought a couple of barely-used guitar case covers from Mr. Dudenbostel, including an interesting 15-minute phone call. Does that count?

    The limit is 10, so I tried to focus on individuals and very small teams.

    Dang. No Collings, Gibson, Apitius, Mowry, McClanahan. Etc Lacking for sure. Maybe change the wordage to “If there could only be one.” Eliminate the list.

    For me it would be either a Collings MF5 Deluxe or a Collings Nugget collaboration Tim O’Brien A.

    Impossible question unless you have played them all extensively to form an opinion. However, every time I pick up my Campanella it brings a big smile to my face!

    Interesting to see Ellis leading the pack. I am wondering if this is due one's affordability (the cost being lower than a Dudenbostel or a Gilchrist), or was it picked based purely on sound qualities? What if money were no object?

    I don't think I can do a poll without a list. Are Apitus, Mowry, McClanahan, Ruhland, etc. "new(ish)" or "up and coming"? Maybe another poll with something like that could be cool. Unfortunately the poll tool only allows 10 options, so it needs to be a pretty focused group.

    Great question! I've seen it stated on here over and over that above approx $10k, there are no wrong answers and it's basically just personal preference. I will say that sound and playability come first, but if you consider craftsmanship... Ellis might literally be #1.
