I bought my Martin
guitarover 20 years ago from a pawn shop in Calgary. I have been playing it and writing songs ever since. Only recently have I been looking into exactly what model it is and I am now finding out that I may have been playing on a Martin knock-off all this time. Although the quality and sound have been excellant and I really can’t complain, I am a little disappointed that I don’t appear to have the real thing. Or do I? I really don’t know. Perhaps someone out there can explain it to me. On the head of the guitaris a logo entitled, "MARTIN". Underneath the logo it says CANADA and underneath that it says EST 1970. Is this a real Martin, related to C.F. Martin & Co. based in Nazareth PA, or is the only connection in the name "MARTIN"? The model number stamped inside, says DR-35N. All these years I thought I had the best guitarmade. Now I am thinking that there may be better guitars (real Martins) out there.
