I've seen a couple of videos of FOTC on YouTube, and I really like the look of Jemaine's guitar. After a bit of searching I found out that it is some sort of classical guitar, anything that can shed some more light on this would be much appreciated!
Here's a picture of him holding the guitar: http://blogs.denverpost.com/reverb/wp-c ... /fotc6.jpg
Hee! A fan after my own heart. I'm similarly obsessed with finding out what instruments people play, as evidenced by this
thread. I haven't dedicated myself to finding Jemaine's yet, mainly because he switches around a bit more than Bret does, so keeping track of what he's playing at any given moment can be tricky. But yep, this does seem to be his favourite acoustic guitar these days:
You're right, it's a classical guitar of some sort, which might make identifying it harder, as the decorative elements on classical guitars vary quite a bit. It's also slightly smaller than a standard classical guitar, as well as being curiously thinner than others that I've seen.
If anyone can find a good close-up of the body and/or headstock, I'd be delighted
to do some investigative work for you. I like solving mini-mysteries, and I've been feeling guilty for focusing so much on Bret's axe and ignoring the sweet little guy Jemaine likes. It's not fair, and I should do better. I'd love any and all insights anybody might have, especially among you guitar players out there.
AcousticFanootic, it may take us a while, but we'll get there!
