That sounds nice!

 

Clean!

 

Is that a ‘re-imagined’ 000-28? It caught my eye ‘cos I have a few books from Kenny Sultan and I think he owned ALL the original droolworthy shade tops 18 and 28 until he sold most recently. So I thought you had bought one...... even so, the shade top would be a custom order?

Thanks gMac and Grunt...

BK, is is a Reimagined 000-28SB (sunburst). They make these, and amber tone, and the blonde. I do love it. It’s got the herringbone trim, and a few other aesthetic upgrades over the prior model. They forward shifted the bracing, so this is more like the Clapton models internally. I played about a dozen of these before I bought, and moved back and forth between these and the 0000s. Love this model... neck, short scale, looks, and sound. The sound doesn’t slap you OMG at first. But it warms up with a lot of play. I think with a few years of age and play, this may one day be my one and only... so I do like it.

Vince Gil has a few of those original shade tops. He pulled one out in that video here (Musician’s Friend?). Those are ..... expensive. Like Porsche expensive.

Thought ya must have dropped the Porsche........ [biggrin]

And I thought you only liked dreds?

Kenny had a row of 000-18 shadetops and Martin had a Kenny Sultan sig model, but that was in the days when the standard models were boats....probably like a re-imagined 000-18 now but bigger neck. A cd came with this music book I got years ago and the 000-18 sounds pretty......sensational! Bad influence, better bin it. Caused me to get my OM-18 Authentic years back.

Truly lovely, Sal. You have developed a magical touch, not only in interpreting a song, but in all the many decisions you make to polish it up. Splendid.

You just get better and better

Guitars lovely too by the way

 

I agree. Getting real strong in all respects, especially the harmonies and production quality.

 

Dont know the song but it sounds like the kind of song that Anne would write and sing.

Good stuff, Sal. Never heard this song before. It truly is a rainy day song and your rendition of it is perfect for this kind of weather. Thanks for the smiles. [thumbup] [thumbup]

I really like the 000 and 0000 body size. A few years ago I bought a used 000-28EC with a K&K in it. I liked it a lot but I did not like the wear and tear on it. I don't mind wear and tear on a vintage guitars but not on newer guitars, that's just me

Since then I picked up a 000-28EC SB and a 0000-28 Koa

Dave what does koa sound like? Hog top? Stunning.

I owned an M21 Steve Earle. One of the best guitars I ever played.

Ps and also have three dogs. Have to ask...is that a Wheaton Terrier behind the koa?

Photo opp?

 

 

Check this old photo, not as pristine now, but sounds even better than the day I opened the case....

 

The game changer! Martin OM18 Authentic! (Not sure if they still make them, but if you see one, try it).
