Standeven dread S&P J45 Maple 000 Larrivee L03   Martin D18
Elizabeth's favourite guitar was handcrafted from spruce and mahogany by Paul Standeven from Royston near Barnsley Elizabeth uses this Simon & Patrick cedar and mahogany dreadnaught for her work in schools Elizabeth's Gibson J45 "Workhorse" in spruce and mahogany Elizabeth saw a Patrick James Eggle quilted maple guitar a few years ago at the Acoustic Avalon guitar weekend in Leicester but couldn't afford it .......so, Martin made her one, a 12 fret 000 with quilted maple back and sides and Engelmann spruce top. Martin's favourite guitar is a Larrivee L03 in spruce and mahogany Martin sold his Larrivee LV09 and replaced it with a Martin GPCPA4 "Shaded"acoustic electric guitar Having longed since his teens for a namesake dreadnaught Martin bought an 80's D16H off eBay. It was enjoyed for a couple of years but has now been traded in against this beautiful Custom Shop Adirondack Spruce D18.
