martin crash victim 2

"My D-28 saved my life! I hit black ice (Pacific NW) a couple of winters ago and went over a bank. On impact, a 20lb speaker (powered) was coming at my head, my faithful Martin (in a gig bag) "floated" up and cushioned the blow. I still got…"

Norman's Preferences

I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
