    Yes, he has at least three or four, possible even five GF-30s, one or two in red, a blonde, a green and a blue one (I didn't find pictures of the blue one).
    And a brown D-25.
    And one or two S-60 solidbody in black (?) and "brown/cherry".

    He's using Sunrise pickups in all acoustic guitars.

    The blonde one: (with his son Curtis)




    The S-60 in black (not 100% sure if it is the brown one and just dark light) and in "brown" one:






    The D-25 (here in 1990) which he still has today:





    The green GF-30:





    The blonde GF-30 and the green GF-30 (and you can see that it is one and the same guitar) are mostly played by his son Curtis now:

    I've seen the blonde one on his boy before.. Who is a pretty good little songwriter in his own right..
    Never seen him with the S60 before very cool. Love all these pictures. Such great taste the McMurtry clan has in their instruments..

    He played the green and red GF30 at a solo show here at Poor Davids Pub about 13 years ago.. It was to this day one of the best shows I have ever seen.

    Based on the other acoustic guild buying habits of the McMurtry fam my guess is that it is an arched back.. Looks like the hog stained spruce top variety to me.. I could be wrong..
