Ron Khoo replied to Ron Lane's discussion What's in a name? DX1 ? in the group Martin Owners
"There were japanese guitars with the name pro martin that were not martins. Also, fake Martins are not Martins. Anything from Nazareth or from Martin's Mexico factory are true martins."

"Robert, it looks like your gibson sg custom has fretboard binding and the binding should cover the fret ends. All my acoustics are not cutaways. I don't like the esthetics of cutaways."

"True Gibsons that have fretboard binding have nib binding or over the fret binding. The chibson did not have nib binding.  Gibson has to sell parts for repairs and upgrades of authentic Gibsons so that argument does not fly."

"It may be the neck profile or weight. The strata bond neck of my 000 is a lot heavier and has a rounded C profile. It does feel rough compared to the finish of my d35. Your guitar is purty in the minimalist Martin way without blinky blink."

"Nice.  Glad you like it. I like richlite fingerboard. But I am not thrilled about the strata bond neck. My 000x1ae has the strata bond neck which does not feel as good as my d16 or d35 with solid wood neck."

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!
