    Having enjoyed Ken Burn's Country Music I did like the practice of guitar players having their name spelled out on the fret board

    There are a few current players who carry on the tradition

    Can folks post pictures of their favorites?

    Got my Martin 000-28 EC in a trade and it is really a nice guitar. I was surprised at HOW nice for a production guitar.

    I call her Layla, Jr.

    I legally changed my name to Dot Marker.

    It took me a while to chose between Dot Marker and Rose Wood.
    I decided Dot Marker would be more of a thinker. :cheers:
