Ultimately stimulated by deadman's posting up of a Garrison electric acoustic, some test-playing of a cheaper Garrison at American Music here in Seattle, some further discussion with my guitar-playing and instrument-building second cousin in the Atlanta area (a big Richard Thompson fan), and some further research--

--and resisting the temptation to go out and blow my entire tax refund on a vintage Martin, which would be way more guitar than my abilities warrant, though darn frickin' tempting!--

I today plunked my hard-earned cash down for this little baby, fresh from the Garrison works in O Canada:

I considered a more expensive model with rosewood, but I found I liked the sound, action, and look of this one better.

Here's the specs on my Garrison G20 acoustic:

body style: dreadnaught
top: solid western red cedar - satin finish
back & sides: solid canadian birch - satin finish
neck: solid mahogany
fingerboard: solid rosewood
bridge: solid rosewood
nut & saddle: TUSQ
rosette: herringbone pattern wood inlay
inlays: mother of pearl dots
tuners: Garrison individual chrome-plated
strings: D'Addario lights, extended play  
warranty: Limited Lifetime - 5 year transferable
intonation: Buzz Feiten Tuning System
nut width: 1.7 inches
scale length: 25.4 inches

I love it so!
