Love your choice of the Gibson (J 200?)..what was/were the deciding factors on this purchase? Any other Acoustics you can't wait to get your hands on? oh, and what gauge strings do you play with live?

Originally I needed a steel-string acoustic guitar because I only had a nylon. I developed a relationship with Gibson because I played a ton of their guitars, and the J-200 spoke to me. There are many other acoustics I love. I have a beautiful Guild steel-string acoustic. Still one of my favorites is the first I ever played, my great grandfather's nylon-string Martin from 1953. I also have an awesome dobro I love. When I play live, it's either 11's, 12's, 13's or 14's depending on the guitar (and whether it's electric or acoustic).
