The projection and tone are incredible .... I've got a 1990 Martin M38, the 70s and my 1979 Guild 412 , and this Morris fits right in in terms of sound and feel ..
Morris on the left, Guild 12 string on the right .... This was the Guild that, when my Dad and I went to pick it up in 1980, Jimmy Crespo wanted to see and played .. He actually showed me some of the chords to Stairway To Heaven ... great guy ..
For those who may be interested:
I had no idea you had a Guild 412, Lucas! Very, very nice...and the Jimmy Crespo story, unreal...very cool.
I have never heard of Morris guitars before this- have to check that out.
I have my eye on another Martin right now, an HD-28...not quite 20 years old, and in just beautiful condition, nearly perfect. This is from another instrument dealer local to me, who is getting set to retire, so I may be getting an incredible deal on it. (Not $200, but still)...second time I’ve encountered this situation in the past six months. That was how I got my O-17 so cheap, too.
Josh, that sounds great -- go for it !!!!
