Actually posted about this in the lefty forum on October 1st... but it fits here, too...

Bit the bullet and ordered a lefty Martin Johnny Cash DX.

This is NOT a "big deal" Martin; this is a Mexican made, HPL (non-wood) bodied, low end Martin... but I think it's pretty cool!

Reasons:

#1. It's a(nother) tribute to the Man in Black - I'm a big fan... and no way can I justify a Johnny Cash D-35 Custom.

#2. It's one of Martin's low-end HPL bodies with a laminated 20+ piece wood neck - no solid woods here!

#3. It has a pickup in it for a really low price!

#4. Did I say a really low price? Yeah - list is $799, but you can get one of these (with soft gig bag) shipped free to your door for just over 5 bills from a few reasonable dealers (who do around 40% off MSRP on most Martins - I'm paying $529 shipped to my door).

They don't keep lefties in stock, so I was given around 6-8 weeks as an estimate for when I might see it.

Getting closer... the dealer e-mailed me for final payment last Wednesday, as Martin had notified them that the JC DX shipped to them that day.

I'll probably see it early/mid next week...unless I get real lucky and it shows up here this Friday!
