I consider myself to be an intermediate level player.
From a group member, Paul Lanni.
I have a Takamine 363SC acoustic electric autographed by my idol, Janis Ian. I have a Penco A180 acoustic guitar (my first) that will always have a special place in my heart. I recently acquired a Variax Line 6 with a pedalboard that can replicate the sound of 25 different guitars. It is great for practicing because the thin solid body saves the wear and tear on my shoulder that I get from playing large acoustic guitars.
I have not really thought about it that much. I like to joke about owning a Kevin Ryan Janis Ian model acoustic guitar - the 'basic' model will set you back around $14K. Unless I hit the lottery, that ain't gonna happen.
Singer songwriter Janis Ian. She is an amazing guitarist and songwriter, and incredibly accomodating to her fans (she autographed my guitar!)
I favor female singer songwriters, e.g. Janis Ian, Carole King, Laura Nyro. I play harmonica a little, and am getting seriously into songwriting.
My first meetup was a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to many more!
