Jon,

I just wanted to let you know that my new Custom D-18 SS guitar was well worth the wait. It plays great and sounds wonderful. The ambertone finish looks great too. The sound is as good or better than my D-45. The short scale is not that much different, but I can tell the fingering and playing on the two guitars are slightly different. I guess the slightly different nut widths makes a little difference. The mahogany is really lighter than the rosewood.

. I am really pleased with the customer service at My Favorite Guitars too. I would like to thank you and Sharon for your help. I might be ready to order another guitar before long, if I can talk Susie into it. I will have to lay low for a while and not push my luck though.

Thanks again,
-- Terry J. Cline


Jon,

I am absolutely amazed at the sound and quality of this guitar. I received it 18 Feb. and have hardly put it down. The upcharge from sitka to Adi was totally worth every dime. It is almost impossible to overdrive this D-18 and the resonance and single note clarity is beyond excellent.

For Travis style, fingerstyle or flatpicking, it excels. It is superior to the D-21 Special I purchased from you, previously. Never thought I would say that. But it’s good to have a rosewood and a mahogany dread. As the word on this new model D-18 gets out, Martin will need extra shifts to keep up! I know there are more expensive mahogany D’s out there, but this one far exceeds my playing ability. Thanks for a pleasant buying experience and a life time keeper guitar.

Best regards
-- Joe M.


Jon & Sharon,

Just a brief note to say how incredibly happy I am with your Custom 00-28V. In addition to your great service and willingness to work with me to get the deal right, the guitar you sent turns out to be just about the finest new custom Martin I’ve had (and I’ve had a few, as your records along will show). This amazing guitar is head and shoulders above most of the guitars my friends and I have A/Bd against it. You’ve got a real winner here and I consider myself fortunate to now own one.

It's a Keeper!

My best,
-- Jim M.


Jon and Sharon,

Well done again. I got my 000-17M in great time and condition. I am looking forward to many hours of playing. Thank you for everything. I look forward to my next purchase with you.

Regards
-- Michael

Hi Sharon and Jon,

I just like to say thank you, it was my pleasure to work with you. Now is a week how I am playing my Martin M-30 Jorma Kaukonen and I love everything about it, specially a true Martin sound. I have nothing to add to Jorma’s spec, it is perfect for my finger picking.

Regards
-- Joseph

Hi Jon & Sharon,

Just wanted you to know my new 000-17SM arrived Friday afternoon. This is a really nice guitar and I’m impressed with it. I’ve really been enjoying it so far. I think Martin has got a winner with this one, for the money it’s a superb guitar. As always, thanks for the advice and excellent service.

This guitar is a OOO-18 Golden Era that we special order through the CFM Custom Shop with an Ambertone 1933 finish. For this reason, the neck block is stamped "Custom." It is the EXACT same guitar otherwise. We get these in one or two a month and they are usually pre-sold so order yours now!  We are allowed to advertise ACTUAL PRICES on all Custom Shop guitars.
IMPORTANT! IT "APPEARS" LIKE OUR AMBERTONE GUITARS ARE HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS LESS THAN OUR STANDARD SERIES SUNBURST GUITARS -- THIS IS BECAUSE WE ARE REQUIRED TO ADVERTISE PRODUCTION GUITARS AT MAP OR MINIMUM ADVERTISED PRICE - BUT WE ARE ALLOWED TO ADVERTISE CUSTOM SHOP GUITARS (LIKE OUR AMBERTONE GUITARS) AT ACTUAL PRICES!
