: : I have an Aspen AD-35 ("A" for Aspen, "D-35" for the Martin which it's a copy of) which I bought in 1978 for, I think, $125. I ordered it from a place in California. I can't recall the name of the place, but I'm pretty sure it's defunct now. I love the sound, and the look of the 3-piece rosewood back. The Grover tuners keep it in tune wonderfully. I've tried out a Martin D-35, and this guitar sounds much better. This was a relatively inexpensive guitar, but the company put quality materials into it. In case it helps, its serial number is 35761122.

: I HAVE A ASPEN, MADE IN JAPAN, MODEL AD26-0 WITH A SERIAL NUMBER THAT READS 26780384, AND IT MADE ME WONDER IF THE 26 WAS THE MODEL, THE 78 WAS THE YEAR IT WAS MADE, WHICH LEFT IT WAS THE 384TH ONE MADE. AND I BELIEVE THIS IS HOW ASPEN RECORDED THEIR GUITARS, AS IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE TO ME, AND YOUR ABOVE AD35 CARRIES EXACTLY THE SAME FORMAT. SO, GOING BY THAT, IT WOULD OF BEEN MADE IN 1976 AND IT WOULD OF BEEN THE 1122nd AD35 MADE. MAYBE I AM WRONG, BUT THAT IS HOW IT APPEARS TO ME. COL SMART, AUSTRALIA

I also have an Aspen AD-35, also purchased in 1978. It always sounded great, with a high end ring & harmonics that would go on forever. Stays tuned great(love them gold grovers) However, it developed a buzz in a couple of frets so I had it gone over & the frets leveled, nut trimmed & now it plays as good as it sounds. I have no intention of ever letting go of it.
