New Martin Custom VTS D-18 at My Favorite Guitars is a hit!

This is from the first person to purchase our new Martin Custom D-18 with the Vintage Tone System!
Hi Jon,
I want to write a quick note thanking you for helping me decide on the right guitar for me. I think the Custom D18 VTS Adi is a perfect choice.
The sound couldn’t be better and adi top is just beautiful. Buying this sight-unseen was a little unnerving but with your professional help and advice we nailed it perfectly. I appreciate your guidance in selecting the specific guitar and getting it to me in perfect condition ready to play. Set up was ideal and I have had to make no changes the past couple of weeks.
I look forward to many years with the new D18, and who knows even something new from the custom shop again in the future.
Oh, and if you can, will you send me the ‘spec sheet’ from the custom order?
Thanks again!
Sam P

Dulono’s summer schedule with Assisted Picking, Porcupine Creek, Richard Smith

Jon Garon and Assisted Picking

Jon Garon first played at Dulonos back in 1971, and although he is officially “retired” from show business and lives in Florida these days, he still regularly gathers many of the best of the Twin Cities acoustic musicians (and many from Nashville) to play bluegrass, folk and Americana music around the midwest. Assisted Picking is really an ad hoc gathering of Jon’s musical friends including folks like The Walker Brothers, Jack Lawrence, (who played with Doc Watson for 30 years) and Clay Hess, Grammy-winning guitarist formerly with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder.  Jon will be at Dulonos several times over the summer – first on June 27th with National Fiddle Champion Sedra Bistodeau, and celebrated local musicians Mark Kreitzer, Tom Schaefer, Tim Hennessy and Pete Mathison.   July 11th brings the bluegrass music of Porcupine Creek to Dulono’s. Jon will join this talented group of young players from Duluth who really tear it up!  And on August 16th, Jon will share the stage with the great Richard Smith – an internationally-heralded fingerpicking virtuoso who tours regularly with Tommy Emmanuel and is considered to be one of the world’s elite players. Jon’s music stays fresh thanks to a great collection of players who collaborate with him to make “Assisted Picking” a powerful musical experience!  Not to mention Dulono’s incredibly good pizza, which is just as good as it was back in 1971!
