Thread Name: Is it still an old Martin?
Subject: RE: Is it still an old Martin?
Leenia - When I was 17, my first real decent quality electric guitar*
was equipped with multiple pickup switching options,
which were claimed to sound almost like any popular Gibson or Fender...
No it didn't.. not really..
and for all the reasons that brand of guitar failed to survive;
one was mainly because too many young inexperienced players
found the pickup switching far more confusing than helpful...
So the 'trouble' is that instead of paying for one guitar that does it all, jack of all trades /swiss army..
but not very convincingly...
we end up spending thousands on a collection of guitars that each do their own one unique thing really very well...
