Me too, can't imagine not playing for three days much less a whole week!

Not play for a week...........or two??? Have mercy, son! My fingers would CLOSE up and my brain would shrink!! Are you kidding me?? Please don't say things like that, at my age, no telling what might happen. Music is all I have left!

For other fingerstyle players, if you ever have to not play for a week or two or month or months, the guitar WILL close up...but the good news is it will open back up in a short time. What I do if I have to leave a vintage guitar in the case for a couple weeks, is use a pick and strum a few songs...using 1st position chords. Loosens her right back up and any tightness that built up is gone. Back to wide open beautiful tone again in no time....and for an hour or two, you only have to deal with the guitar sounding like it did when you first bought it!!!

Thanks for the nice comments folks! Even though this D35 is 24 years old already she is in incredible condition - and yes, she definitely sounds even better than she looks :D

@Aden: use 'er well. She's a beauty!!

@Mike: I loved when John S said the guitar get better with each strum. Kinda makes you feel "obligated" to play more, huh? Owing it to your guitars to bring them more Life.

Beautiful looking D35!!! And I'm sure that more importantly is what it does to you when you simply strum a chord or pick a melody.

Aden, Looks lovely.  I guess my old D21 looked that pristine 52 years ago.
