What Guitars do the Fingerstyle Gods Play?

I thought it would be fun to take a quick look at the guitars played by some of the best fingerstyle guitar players in the world today. There’s no breakdown of specs. No pros and cons or anything. Just some pictures and links.

I’m sure these players own a fair few other guitars as well, but here are some of their main axes.

Enjoy!
