Long time fan of Acoustic Guitar, including the "Frets" days; been lurking on the site for some time. Thought I'd pony up with photos of my two Martins. First two are my HD-28, purchased in 1985. Second two are my D-35 purchased around 2000. Love them both. D-35 is upgraded with Gold Schallers.

Hey, I might get in trouble here, but here goes:


As far as I know, the original FRETS magazine is long gone...there seems to be a new on called FRETS that is published by Guitar Player magazine, but it ain't like the old one!  You can go to the link below and read it or download a free digital version of the best of FRETS from recent's pretty good!  If you decide to download it and read it, let me know what you thought!  Edward 

Here is a link to it...

Beautiful guitar! Should you work on your own frets, you might be interested in a recent article by Stewart-MacDonald. They showed how to do this job. I've also done a lot of fret dressing (including the D-41 Special in my pic at left) and would be happy to help if you want. It's not difficult but you need the right tools.

Real nice Mark. Seems like most of the members have the OM 28, I didn't realize it was so popular! You know I like fingerstyle, also, I'm hoping to manage with my D 35...... It has a great low profile neck an barre chords seem relatively easy, sure can tell the fretboard is absolutely straight, flat, sturdy......gotta get those fret wires resolved so I can slide better. Spoke to our local low end music store owner today an she offered to help, but I may di it myself after awhile. I'm thinking, tape on the Boltron trim and a fine finger nail file board type, Mabey 4-5 strokes on each fret wire, seem to be just burrs,,,,,,,or I may head a couple hrs down the road to someone with some hurry, I'm contemplating........I'm happy, all in all though, just one of lifes little annoyances......oh, I got the molded case I wanted too, did u see all the pics, some pics are elsewhere in the forum, I got confuddulled........ketch you'll later, nite nite
