I have read that it is a Custom Legend 1719-30CM and a Balladeer. I am curious if anyone has a way to know for sure. My Goals Beyond has probably the most beautiful acoustic tone I have ever heard.
Featuring: John McLaughlin, Airto Moreira, Charlie Haden, Billy Cobham, Jerry Goodman, Mahalakshimi, Badal Roy, Dave Liebman When John McLaughlin arrived in New York from his native England , the twenty-seven year old guitarist was virtually unknown in the United States. But in no time at all he would find himself an integral part of some of the most important jazz activity then taking place in this country, with a rapidly growing reputation that would soon have him acknowledged as the foremost guitar player of the 1970s. When My Goals Beyond was released in 1971 Down Beat praised it as 3a compelling new view of the most exciting guitarist playing today,2 and Robert Palmer called it in Rolling Stone 3a quietly beautiful LP, certainly McLaughlin1s best.2 As the years have gone by its reputation has continued to grow and it has come to be regarded as a modern classic. For the critic Joachim E. Brendt, My Goals Beyond is the 3record which really established solo guitar playing - the forerunner of hundreds of solo guitar records which followed - and, in my opinion, it is still the most beautiful of them all.2 Knit Classics is proud to make My Goals Beyond available once again.
