i own one

I've told you people before that I own one really, really fine guitar--- a 1964 Martin D-28. I love that thing.

Evidently, other people do, too.


The Martin D28, especially in the vintage years, are dream guitars for a lot of people. I never personally got to own one, but Bob that lived next door to me in the early '70s had one that his worthless stepchildren scratched all up with a ball point pen out of meaness.

It was a sweet sounding piece of wood if you ask me, which you didn't.

One of my goals is to own one, too, someday.

Nothing quite like a D-28. Damn thing will last 40 years, too, if you treat it right...

My favorite, too. And it should last a lot longer than 40 years and actually improve in tone over time if you keep the humidity stable.
