On Hold!
I am first and foremost a bassist, so that means if you hand me a guitar, you will most likely hear a complaint within 60 seconds. Not that I haven't tried to learn the instrument- I really have, but it seems I just don't have that thing a good guitarist has. That said, there are a rare few guitars that make you want to sit down and play no matter how good or bad you are. We once had a 1995 Collings D2HA that was such an instrument. It had a hard "V" neck profile that felt perfect to my hands and it rang out like a bell. Of all the acoustic guitars we had purchased over the years, it was my favorite. That is, until this D-41 Special arrived. I'm not sure if it's the modified "V" neck or the shorter, 24.9" scale length that makes this guitar so unique, but once again, from the first time I picked it up, I did not want to stop playing it. There is a certain warm and even tone that appeals to me as a "non- guitarist" and this Martin has it in spades. There is a also a quite nice "ring" when you strum it and the notes sound even and balanced. Again, it's just one of those rare guitars that have a strong attraction from the first note and while we have several really high- end and superior acoustics, this would be the one for me were I to seriously attempt to take up the instrument. Martin may make a lot of fine modern guitars, but when they crafted this guitar, they not only got the guitar right, they did the same with the name.
