Subject: Review: Martin...again/still, the saga continues

Alright, so I have lusted in my heart lo these many years for a Martin guitar. In the mean time, I have gotten to be friends with a couple of non-Martins, and finally settled into a life without Martin. I was even going to sell a couple of them, just to keep my confusion to a minimum and make space for something else.

But lovely and adorable wife would not let it go. And she meets me for dinner--gets there before me--and...a shiny new D-28 is sitting in the booth where I should sit! I mean, right there in the restaurant, of course I had to open up the case and strum a little! (Some patrons said to shut up, and others asked me to play more. Go figure.) Of course, it is a grand piece. And now, I *really* have to sell off a couple. I mean, why would I play anything else? But I complain too much, I know.

Saul

Aw, Saul, what a nice story. I hope you and your wife and the guitar have many happy years together.

Saul,
You'll never be happier.
A D-28, serial number 246352 helped me visit lots of countries, paid my mortgage, paid for my son's boarding school education and still delights me.
Your wife is a jewel! The D-28's quality will be remembered long after the price is forgotten.

Congratulations and many hours of happy playing with your new D-28. But don't go too crazy with getting rid of your "lesser" guitars unless there's a real financial issue. When I got my first Martin back in the '70s, I gave away the Yamaha I had been playing, thinking I'd never want to play it again. Forty years later, I have three Martins and five other handmade acoustic guitars, but I wish every day I had that old Yamaha back.

Right! When you have a new baby, you don't give an older child away, do you? It's the same with guitars.

Congratulations. You have one of the finest instruments going for our sort of purposes. We who know and love Martins are a special sort of cult, dedicated to clear, strong acoustic voice, a gem-like virtue in a world of clangor and over-amplification.

My own D-35 is getting on, and deserves gentler treatment than I have given her in years past, so I will be using her at home. For outings to rougher country than my own living room, or involving sound systems, I will be using my much younger Taylor. But that is in no wise a reflection on the Martin, whose voice is impeccable.

You deserve to celebrate and rejoice!

A

Celebrate the guitar, but celebrate more the brilliant wife who pays attention and supports your joy. Marvelous.
