For Fans of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine
It's true that Johnny Cash wasn't much of a picker. Hell, he wasn't much of a grinner either - but he was a great singer, and a terrific role model. He's certainly one of my favorite American musical icons. I've never been to a festival and seen one of these guitars. I don't think I've ever even seen one anywhere, so this will be the first guitar review that I've done about a guitar that I've never had my hands on - but when you've got a reputation like Martin does, someone like me can be confident that the guitar is all that it's cracked up to be.
It's bound to be a cannon - high X, scalloped braces, East Indian Rosewood with an Engleman Spruce top and an inlay of the man in black's signature on the twentieth fret, with Johnny's surviving son's signature on the label. I want one. No, I can't afford one - and my Santa Cruz might be a better guitar - but what does that matter? We who play around with guitars and fiddle tunes . . . .often have an addiction to feed with high end guitars. Hey, things could be a heck of a lot worse for us!
If you HAVE played one of these - please tell me what you thought about it!
