"The walnut with map of 369 went at 220. The excursion folk is cheaper at map of 299. It should go below 200. I am trying to avoid getting another guitar as I do not need another guitar. I do have the seagull coastline folk."
"The stratabond neck is almost indestructible and should not be a problem in winter. In an HPL guitar with solid top, only the top might be of concern. Otherwise, keep guitar in case and humidify room and guitar case."
"I never owned a cutaway acoustic so I cannot tell about tone. I just don't like the looks of cutaway and rarely try to play low down the fret board and have little use for cutaways. But they are useful if one wants to play lead or…"
"I actually would not mind an HPL top, back and sides. It makes a good winter guitar where I do not need to be concerned about the dry air. My X1000AE has HPL back and sides but solid spruce top so it is not a leave it outside in the dry…"
"Are these factory seconds or new "perfect"? Well, I missed the walnut mini jumbo; I like the walnut but not the mini jumbo shape. The excursion folk is at $220. I might bite as that will be a good winter guitar."

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.
