GUEST,Jerry Faires Lyr Req: The D-18 Song / Thank You Mr Martin (17) RE: Lyr Req: The D-18 Song / Thank You Mr Martin 18 May 12


Well, y'all...It happened just as I wrote it in the song...except I paid $105.00 for it, but couldn't fit that into the meter of the lyric. And, mine was made in late 1953...Norman's version has it a '43, but he's got more and older gittars than me.
You can see photos of the D-18 on my website,   www.jerryfaires.com
Don't be thrown off by the inlay I did on the neck...the heel is carved, also, by "Tommy from Chattanooga". It actually has more finish on it now than when I bought it, but decades in the honkytonks of northern New Mexico playing rhythm in a remarkable bluegrass/boogie/jazz band have left their mark. I'm glad y'all like the song, and, that Mr. Martin has been making those fine old D-18's for us since 1934.
Watch yer back trail...Jerry Faires
