    Been a long time since I owned or played a Martin. Do they have a truss rod? If so I guess they would have to be adjusted from inside the sound hole?

    Looks like the bridge has no adjustment feature so if you wanted to raise the action you shim the bridge, and if you want to lower it you file or sand down the bottom?
  2. In Topic:Which 335 would you say is better value?

    If you have the chance to play them both, then the one that feels and sounds best to you is the better value.

    For the same price I guess the 15 year newer one might be better as the electronics, the finish etc have all had 15 years less use, so it might last longer and be in better condition. But again playing them would be the best way to tell which is better for you.

    Very nice, and coming from Sweetwater you know it will be set up nice and not have any issues.

    Enjoy it - you should land very safely from your "leap". [thumbup]

    Actually, it is recorded acoustic. So no effects / amp on whatsoever. The "wha/vibrato" sound is the buzz/resonance i'm talking about. It appears if you play a note and move around the neck like normal when playing (not shake but just gently). If you try to play reaaaaly carefull and keep the neck real still it does not seem te appear (or a lot less).


    Ok, wow, that is really strange - I thought you were playing through an amp. Let me ask this, do you hear it when you play through an amp? Does it get worse amplified, or does the amplified signal drown it out. Knowing that what you recorded was not amplified it almost sounds like a weird string buzz but can't say I've ever heard anything like that.
  5. In Topic:.012 Neck Relief origination

    Agree, funny how when something/anything is printed it gets credence.

    Sort of like the modern day "if it's on the internet is must be true".

    But the way Gibson does things, it wouldn't surprise me if they sent the .012 spec in writing to Dan, but never actually used it at the factory. [flapper]
