Subject: RE: Martin 58. Gibson 2. Holy Cow!

My favorite guitar I ever owned was a no-name laminated spruce top, mahognay back and sides cheapie... It had a name in the soundhole but for my life I can't recall it... the reason it's my fave is because I wrote my first songs on it and I appeared on TV for the first time with it... It played well till the top bowed like all the cheapies do... I used electric strings on it when i played live to give the magnets in the pickup some more to chew on... seriously, it worked... a set of electric 10's...

P.S. Anyone ever play or see a PRESTIGE? cheap brand from 50's and 60's... I'm sure that one in brand new shape can't be that bad, but I'm about to drop $35 for a mint condition one... lemme know if there are any horror stories. *GP*
