So a week and a half ago I traded my 2017 Martin OM 21 that I never played for a 2000 Martin D 18V. While I really like the tone of the D 18 it had a 1 11/16 nut and narrow bridge spacing. This does not bother me on strumming but the narrow bridge spacing really makes finger picking difficult for me and switching from my 000 28 Modern Deluxe with its 1 3/4 nut width and wider bridge spacing. Went by Sam Ash tonight and traded it in for this new HD 28. I was actually blown away by the trade amount they gave me for the D 18. The regional manager was in the store for a visit and my sales guy and the store manager told him I’d bought an American Orig 50’s Tele, an ES 335 and the 57 Custom Deluxe from them since January so they ended up giving me 75% of what they have listed the D 18 for! The store manager wanted my wife and I to meet the regional manger and told him we were one of her top customers. Spent 20 minuets talking with the regional manager about gear. I will post pics tomorrow but this thing is gorgeous, plays like a dream and has all the Martin dreadnaught tone you would expect.
