Subject: RE: 'Inventing the American Guitar' - Martin
Damn - the "send" button got pressed before I could edit the long list in the previous post!
The point I was going to make is that Martin XC1T is very different from the Martin "tradition" - I thought Chris Martin was being a little ingenuous with his quote - and that my guitar uses non-traditional and "artificial" materials to a large extent.
The guitar, by the way, sounds beautiful and is perfect for recording acoustically. But it's not your conventional Martin by a long way. And it was cheap - around £800 when I bought it - but sounded better than other guitars in the store costing twice and three times as much at the time.
That's my subjective opinion, of course.
