Thread Name: Martin Guitars - Too 'Boomy' ??
Subject: Martin Guitars - Too 'Boomy' ??
I'll admit from the start that I'm a Martin lover. I think they make great guitars. But I've always wondered about the complaint that I've heard from time to time that Martins were too "boomy" - that they had too much bottom end. I've always wondered how a guitar could have too much bottom end. If there is one I havn't heard it.

How about you? Ever find a Martin that had an overpowering bottom ? I've heard a lot of instruments that I thought sounded wimpy but never one that had too much tone. I'm not trying to give folks a chance to flame or boast that "my guitar is better than your guitar" but I'd love to hear from some of you that really think that it's possible to have too much tone on a guitar.
