This has been on my 'long' list for a long time.
A Martin D-35.
I really wanted something from the late 60s or early 70s but alas, the prices are way out of reach for me.
This one's about 7 years old ...

ohmy.gif no messing about with that bad boy! I'll wager it's awesome to play?
Ive never actually played a high end acoustic. My local guitar shop has a Martin 000-21 1947 - its only 5 grand.

Unless you have the cash to buy one, don't biggrin.gif

Recently played a higher-end one for a friend and the neck was as comfy as an ibanez, was so easy to play finger style without long nails it was just crazy smile.gif

I will record something in a bit ... after I feel I can play it.
Martins are unique in that they are not necessarily 'easy' guitars to play. Especially the trad models. The necks are big, the scale is longer (25.4 like a Telecaster) and the tops are stiffer. That all results in a bit brighter sound with a lot of volume and great bass response. Consequently, they kinda 'bite back'.
Don't get me wrong, it plays beautifully, is amazingly in tune and has a great tone but I am a lot 'slower' on it for now. It also hasn't been played for a few years and it needs to open up and breath a bit.

*This was not priced high. Less than half of a new one and many times less than a good, vintage D35.
I'm a cheap bastard - which is why it was on my 'long' list for so long.

Nice! Having one in a collection is always a good thing. I sold my accoustic and classical for some reason, now I need new ones.
