Q: Hi John finally going to get to see you live. Been a fan from the start. What kind of guitars do you play and why? Donna Cacia
A: Thanks for the support! I have always played Martins. I currently have a 1976 D-28, 1966 D-21, and a Baritone. I am a finger picker and a banger and these guitars handle both. Beautiful instruments indeed!! John
