Subject: RE: Info/Opinions RE: Martin Guitars
Everyone ought to have one material thing that he or she feels is very, very fine, indeed. Something they never get tired of picking up, feeling, admiring. Something that has the power to change a mood from dark to bright, or at least happily mellow. For some, it may be a fine watch or automobile; for others, an exquisite sculpture or other object of art. For many of us in this forum, it's probably a cherished musical instrument. For me, it's my relatively late-model HD-28. Maybe nothing special to you owners of vintage instruments. But I've been playing guitar for over 30 years, dreaming of owning a Martin one day. I bought mine in early 1995, after playing all the popular alternatives to Martin. I've never regretted buying the herringbone. Nothing but pure pleasure every time I open the case. Long live the 'bone!!
