"Cool looking backpacker with wings. Hope it can fly like a Seagull.. I tried the backpacker in GC and was not impressed with the sound. I would love to try the Junior Dread, but the local GC did not have it then, I was not going to drive…"
It might snow tonight so my gulls are all warm in their gig bags. Only the Rogue is out of case as it completely laminate and I don't care if it gets cracked.
Back to another hobby -- building loudspeakers."
"What guitar have people been playing? I have been playing my crappy cheap horrible action and sound Rogue guitar and nothing else. No Martin, no Taylor with Brazilian Rosewood, no parlor, no Seagull (sacrilege), no Gibson, no nothing…"
"Fiddles sound like an ass tail rubbing against cat guts in the hands of a beginner. Together with the bag pipe, it is the worse sounding among beginners. Beginner guitars sound like heaven compared to cat gut rubbing against ass tail."

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.
