The M-32 listed here is a fantastic guitar, and probably the Lakewood that will appeal to the broadest cross-section of players. The European spruce makes this a responsive and dynamic instrument, and the slightly deeper lower bout gives it plenty of meat in the lows. I especially appreciate the small design touches, like the wider soundhole that gets a matching wood rosette (I wish more American builders did this), and the attractive contrasting backstrip.
An old Shoreline employee walked away with one of these years ago (after paying, of course), and it is still his go-to guitar for recording and leading worship. If you're looking for a versatile all-rounder, the M-32 is worth some serious consideration.
