Alright , I'm in. My current guitar is one of the last batch of the original Adirondack topped HD-28LSV's. It'smore guitar than I'll ever need. I love it.

Thank you, Paige! Great idea!
I play a 1956 D-28 that's been played so much there's no finish left on the neck at all and a signature model MC3H "OOOO".

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining the group :-)

Wow, everyone has a lot of Martin Guitars, they all sound neat!
Comment by Bob Minner on January 15, 2009 at 7:19pm
Well, my Martins are a 1946 herringbone and a 1943 D-18. Fine girls, indeed. But, I am really eyeing up one of the D-18 Authentics...:-)

Well, I have owned a lot of Martin guitars over the years. I currently play a HD-28VR, and a D-18VM, both built in 1998, and both very fine ones, indeed.

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
