"Cash" on the Frets is dual cool.  Remind everyone to pay musicians.   Or, just a subtle tribute to the Man in Black right on the guitar.  No stickers needed.  

This guitar: It's a Martin first of all.  
Honoring the Man in Black, this guitar melds modern building techniques with classy looks. Fitted with Fishman MX electronics, it's ready for the stage.
How did this come around?
In the early 1970s, Martin Guitar was commissioned to design an all-black lacquered D-35 for country star Johnny Cash. Though Martin had never considered such a request before, an all-black D-35 for the "Man in Black" was custom-made. Cash went on to play his custom D-35 on stage for the next 20 years. The DX Johnny Cash is a nod to the history between Cash and Martin Guitar.

Designed in collaboration with John Carter Cash and the Cash Foundation management team, the guitar features a classic Dreadnought body shape constructed with Jett black high-pressure laminate (HPL) top, back and sides. Like the earlier commemorative edition, this instrument includes a custom fingerboard inlaid with stars and the "CASH" logo. Johnny Cash's signature appears on the rosette and label. This model comes with Fishman MX electronics and a soft gig bag embroidered with the "CASH" logo and is strung with Martin's Authentic Acoustic Lifespan 2.0 strings. The DX Johnny Cash was designed to be an accessible and playable guitar for anyone looking to honor the legacy of the legendary musician.
