"How strong is such a head stock? Looking at it, the tension is supported by the shape.  Any side bang to a strung guitar might break it.  "

"So that money, I will get a prehistory Martin.  At least, the Martin is likely to appreciate if kept in good condition.  20++K guitar should be made of banned human bone and banned rosewood."

"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."

"Price on the excursion folk keeps dropping.  It was 222 two days ago, 219. yesterday, and 215 today.  I wonder if I should wait a few days and get the excursion folk.  It makes a good winter guitar."

"Woo wee.  The back is very nice.  Definitely better than the cherry excursion.  I wished I saw this thread when the price was 220.  I cannot spring for 369."

"Price of the Seagull Excursion folk went down form 222 to 218.  Being a complete laminate, this guitar will fare better in hostile winter.  "

"A 1944 Martin D28 should be on your list.  It is the holy grails of holy grails."

Ron Khoo replied to Tony K.'s discussion My first and probably last Martin! - DCPA5K in the group Martin Owners
"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."

"Nope, not 37 or born in '78.  Now a LP from my Birth year will be outside my price range."

Ron Khoo commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"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…"

"Good thing I was not born on 1951 or 1965.  No need to think of buying these guitars as I should not buy any more guitars."

"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."

Heyya Ron...check out the Martin guitars website for events,etc. We had one around here a couple weeks ago, but I couldn't make it. I use the MSP7600 extra lights on all my 12's now.

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!

Heyya Ron...what years are your Martins?

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.

Hey Ron!  Thanks for joining the Seagull group.  Glad to have you with us!
