PoppaGator - I love my D-18 also. It's a 67 but I bought mine in 1969. Still have it too. I hope I'm able to pass it down to my son someday. But the guitar that gets the most action right now is a new Collings OM. Martin still makes some great guitars but for my tastes Collings has a more consistant product. I think being a smaller shop gives them the time and ability so produce a great guitar time after time. Right now it looks like Martin is caught up in trying to mass produce a lot of good guitars and Collings is willing to make fewer - but better instruments. But like the lady said who kissed the cow - "Everybodies got their own tastes".
