GREAT choices on your martins! Does your D16 have the aged toner top? Wish mine did! I have a D12-16RGTC that is #166 of 200 that has satin rosewood back and sides with a couple of other tweaks that was commissioned by Guitar Center in 2001. I'm the 2nd owner.
Don'tcha just Love your D35? I really enjoy the 12 fret neck..heck, I even Love the way it smells!
If you like the looks of the dark finish on the Entourage Rustic and you actually wanted the slim 1.72 inch nut, then you made the right choice. The Entourage Rustic and the S-6 slim are pretty much the same guitar other than the finish. I was drawn to the S-6 mainly because I really wanted the wider nut.
