    Oh gratz! That is a GREAT gift! Enjoy every moment with that thing! (Talking about the guitar, not your wife of course...ūü•ļ).

    Of course I do enjoy both

    Maybe next year I'll do a D28. I like the sound of them, but they are like dance with a chubby girl imo. Not a bad thing, I'm just saying.


    Oh looking 2021 is less than a week way. 

    I actually  will wait till spring.


    Enjoy.  Martin's and Gibson's are some of my fav acoustics, along with a few other brands.




    Way back in the 1970s my first lessons were on an old D-18  that my neighbor had. I loved the sound of it and always wanted one.,just wouldn’t spend the money for myself . I have all the acoustics I need now

    Might want to get a better stand for it too. I have seen guitar slide of those type of stands. I'm just saying.


    Awesome gift. Martin is doing some of the best work they ever have done.

    PLEKed by elves too.


    If you don't like the string that came on it, let them season. 

    I did a 00028 this year. The guitar is to die for.

    My wife never buys me music stuff. I tell her my next wife will. :lol:

    No worries ,that stand was only for the pic. It stays in  it's case if it isn't in my hands.

    We toured the factory in 2019 ,she no doubt saw me drooling.

    Well many congratulations to you  .  .  .  .  .  .  and to your wife for being so clever and magnanimous.

    Thanks . She knows this is something I’ve wanted for many years but would never buy for myself

    Epiphone still makes the Broadway.

    Guild has the X175 Manhattan, Savoy's and Starfire's

    Ibanez still makes the George Benson model.

    Good enough for jazz music.:D


    I looked at a Byrdland years ago but to me the short scale was a deal breaker. I think it was 23 1/5 “amp 

    I would actually prefer the Broadway

    Have you played one? I have not played the mini-hum version, like in the pic, but the 3-P90 model, the new ones, are not like they were ten years ago.

    Might be the latest production move. I know they moved some things over to Viet Nam....not sure what.

    Have not played one ,in fact haven't even seen it yet but sure interested in finding out more.

    Most 8 string acoustics are baritones, this was, AFAIK, designed for Standard tuning.

    Close. The guitar I have in mind is an AEL108MD. The third and fourth strings are doubled as octaves. There was another version with the first and second strings doubled but I thought the octaves version would be cool, almost a 12 string without the futzy tuning and the added neck and bridge stress.


    i play acoustic on Sunday mornings , that would work really well. I can see your interest in it
