Johnny Cash is as real as they come, brother. I feel sorry for poor lil’ Juaqiem Phoenix – trying to fill those big (white) shoes on screen. The hard livin’, honky tonkin’, God lovin’ man in black. God rest his soul.
C.F. Martin & Co. have been making top quality guitars since 1796, and are still family owned and operated out of Nazareth, PA. Martin is truly a guitar with few rivals in terms of quality, tone and boom- played by the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Guy Clark and many other music legends. Martin is probably best known for their D-45 Dreadnought model (a little wider body and more squared shoulder), first crafted for Gene Autry in 1933. In my book, both Johnny and Martin are true American Icons.
Mr. Phoenix couldn’t handle the pressure of playing the real deal; he’s supposedly given up movies.
Blog looks great! Some beautiful photographs and articles thusfar. I’m really looking forward to the future. Much success to you!
Thanks very much. It means a lot coming from you.
Happy New Year-
gotta love Martin + Cash.
the D-28 is probably the standard when it comes to Martin guitars. the D-45 is more of a bling’d out custom model of the D-28.
keep up the good work man, best blog on the internet.
