Damn... Robert, you should have re-direct her GAS attak toward the D-35... BUY it... and compensate with a couple of heavy woolly pullovers... eheheh...

I've got the wife, just not the $.  Recently went to a local store where SHE had a GAS attack over a Martin SWOMGT.  First steel string guitar I've gotten her to play in over 40 years!  AND they had a D-35 that would have been a great companion to my D12-35.  But we're reassembling a PA system right now and heating season is coming on...

mmm... if there's a disease I've never been affected is envy... but... how does it comes that Michael and Alan have those rare kind of wives who love their husbands and their husbands' guitars too ???!!! I'm sure them both deserve this happiness... In my next life I'll marry an overseas girl!.. Wish me good luck!

Michael, the strings spacing seems very narrow... it's my optical sensation?

Anyway... very good purchase!

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen yesterday

Congrats Michael. Looking forward to more pics when you get it back from being brought up to its finest condition.

I'll work with :"pretty figgin' good"...

Comment by FloridaGull on Thursday

No pictures?  Shame upon you... ;-)

IMHO, if it has a crack, it isn't "mint"...or even "excellent"...

Comment by michael schwartz on Thursday

Added another 12 string into the mix....yes, my Wife was very supportive in this !!

It's the : Martin 000012-28H AG Arlo Guthrie     A smaller body that's as fun to play as it is too look at.

  sadly, the man who sold it to me called it "MINT',,,the finish crack in the center didn't happen because of shipping, also, who would ship a 12 string with only 8 on it??!! I'm bringing it to an authorized Martin Service person to have it brought to it's finest condition.

 Steer clear of a man named Dannie Powers from Virginia...deceitful description is now going to cost me time and $$

Hey Michael:


They are too cool,


I would not mind having something like those hanging in my man/ cave/ room, if I could find the room.

Very good looking for miniatures.
