‘The closest guitar to me is my new Martin. Martin Guitars, who I am endorsed by and play religiously, built me a custom shop acoustic. Myself and Fred at the custom shop collaborated on some ideas. To me it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s sort of a mixture of the two guitars that I play. I have the 1944 00-17, which is sort of a smaller body, which I use for fingerpicking and solo stuff, the other guitar is a 67 D-28, which I kind of play more with the band. I kind of wanted to do a mixture of those two guitars in a way. It’s a smaller-body dreadnought, so it’s not as big as a D-28 or D-18. It’s a 12-fret model, so the neck’s smaller on it, and it’s got a slotted headstock, which I really like – kind of like an old, classic style – but it has like a honeyburst, kind of finish to it, and it has a beautiful floral inlay up on the headstock. It’s really, really amazing and Fred’s done an amazing job on it. It’s got Brazilian rosewood on the sides and back, and I’m pretty sure it’s a spruce top. I’m not really sure on the rest of the woods. I’m not that well-learned on the arts of the woods. All I know is that it looks great and it sounds great. And that’s the best part.’ -Dallas Green; Source: 'Green's Peace' by Guy Little, http://www.acousticmagazine.com/interviews/greens-peace/more
