My '37 000-18 sound more like this one Kenny Sultan is playing here - of course when I play it....not so much. It's a bit brash for a singer songwriter or someone like Sarah Jarosz, but I love this clip.

Its all good.  I like all kinds of different instruments.  I don't own a prewar Martin but I wish I did.  I'm not planing on getting rid of my two Brazilian Martins any time soon.
