I live in Corpus Christi.
Pretty good ways away from Spring
You're in the Houston area which is about 4 hours away.
I have some very good friends we visit quite often in League City, but rarely venture out towards Spring.
Congrats, sounds like a great guitar. Sort of a deluxe version of the current D Jr. I think they are 23 inch scale too. But an upgrade in body and neck material, plus years of play already.
What gauge strings will you be using? I know some people use mediums on short scale guitars. I like the custom lights (.011-.052) on the standard short 24.9 scale Martins, but they might be too light for a 23 inch scale.
Next time you do, reach out to me. Wanna play the old Veteran? I'd be honored if you did.
Awesome for the invite.
I might take you up on the offer thanks.
That's exactly what I was planning on using.
I think those should feel good and not too slinky like 10's would.
I mean, like "hot" in a good way. Like it is really really nice. Not that it is "hot" as if it had been stolen, although you got it for a steal. I mean a great price, I am sure it is hot, but not that kind of hot as you are buying from a reputable dealer.
OK it looks "fine".
uhm, not fine like "ok". But "fine" like, that is some "fine" wine.
I am just joking.
Anyway, that guitar looks really nice, and awesome, and wonderful and all those kind of things.
Wow, that's some haggling! Very impressive.
It's great to hear these kinds of stories. Congrats and enjoy!
Good haggling! You could give lessons.
Congratulations and welcome to the club!
I have two 28-series Martins, an 000-28 I bought in 2012 and a D-28 I got last year. The 28s are very good value: beautiful appointments and upgraded solid tonewoods. I bought a mini-Martin for my daughter when she turned 12 and started taking an interest in my guitars...
The instruments coming out of Nazareth in the last 10 years are some of the best they have ever made. I'm not sure how Martin manages to produce hand built guitars of this current quality for the price they charge. I guess they just must sell thousands of them?
It's taken me a VERY long time to join the Martin club, but I'm glad I finally got me a good one.
I think once I get the guitar out and give it some TLC and put some good strings on it, it's going to be a great audition to my guitar collection.
The guitar is so unique that it's going to fill a spot that no other guitar can.
I really can't wait.
I just have to sell a couple of pieces of gear.
Thanks for the video.
I didn't bother to look on Youtube, I just looked for written info on the internet.
VERY cool video.
Nice score! I do love my Martins I have a well used '71 D-35 and a '99 D-18 Golden Era, love them both. I had a 000-16 cutaway with onboard electronics I used when I played in church, but sold it when I didn't need it anymore.
That’s a beautiful guitar and at a great price. I sold all of my acoustic guitars a couple of years ago and your guitar makes me want another.
Congrats, and enjoy that Martin.
I ALMOST bought a mid 70's D-35 from a pawnshop.
The manager said the guitar was a week from coming out.
He showed me pics, and it was a really nice one too.
The lady showed up mid week to pay on it and was able to keep it.
Probably could have had for about $750 or so.
I think that's what the manager said he'd take out the door.
He said he's made a ton of money on that guitar be pawned for many years, and he didn't have to make the full amount on it.
I've scored so many other killer deals, that missing out on the D-35 didn't bother me.
There's always another great deal just around the corner.
Welcome to the Martin family... looks like a very cool little guitar.
I have a D-28 12-string (D-1228) and a DC16 OGTE. Fabulous instruments... best of luck with your new purchase!
D-28, you are the man
