"My x1 000 is in a bag in a humidifier room. I take to my bedroom which has a vaporizer. So it is not experiencing major humidity drop. My better guitars stay warm and happy in their hard cases. I might bring out a gully."
Glad you like the feel of the stratabond neck. I guess I have to play my 000 martin more even though it is basically my go to guitar now as I do not want to use my better Martin or Taylor with the dry conditions.."
"Robert, How do you like the stratabond neck? I have a Martin OOO sized X1 with the stratabond neck. I find the neck feel a bit off compared to a solid wood neck.
It looks good and probably sound great ."
"That nice guy from Nigeria will also give me USD 20,000,000 as soon as I give me all me details. Glad to hear that Martin is just as lucky. We will be glad to share that UN money with our fella gulls.
And I will buy a priceless…"
"The fake back of my 000x1 martin is okay. The spruce top is ok sounding. But the layered glued neck has a weird feel. But that is my go to guitar until the weather warms up. As a smaller body, the 000 size is comfortable. I prefer the sound of the…"

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.
