  1. IMO The politicians, pundits, propagandists, and posters on social media are the ones to be suspected of not knowing what they are talking about. Fauci, The scientists at the CDC, and the WHO's scientists know more about this than the rest of the world does. And they won't tell you to inject Clorox in you veins to cure yourself. If anyone thinks a politician knows more about infectious disease than Fouci, then they should go to a politician or pundit the next time they get sick. When hundreds of experts agree, and zero experts are disagreeing I tend to think they know what they

  2. One has to look at actual acoustic flat-top guitar history to put the whole Martin and Gibson thing in perspective and why one feels the way they do about one or the other or both. Historically, Martin was the originator of current hand crafted acoustic flat-top guitars. That being said, Gibson as well as any other hand crafted acoustic flat-top guitars are variation alternatives to the original design of hand crafted flat-top guitars. For example, Gibson, produced an alternative to Martin’s dreadnaught design by producing a round shouldered Jumbo that was similar to the original Martin d

  9. Here’s a quick iPhone recording of one of Garth’s early hits. Always loved this tune. I muffed the lyrics in one or two spots, but...hope you enjoy it anyway. Love this J45. thanks for watching.

  11. I’ve owned a few Martins. Three (OM18V, 00DB Jeff Tweedy, D18GE) really got their claws into me. The Tweedy in particular was glorious, absolutely nothing that didn’t please me about that little thing. However, one thing all my Martins have in common is that they aren’t here anymore. I’ve always had Gibson acoustics, but Martins have come and gone. A Dove, AJ or SJ200 is home to me in a way that no Martin has ever been. I have always liked Martins a great deal, but I’ve never loved one the way that I’ve loved my best Gibsons.

  13. Hey V - For what its worth I have owned and loved a bunch of Martin's. Though to be honest the 000-28EC Which I have owned three - I just never bonded with and none of them sounded that great. Like allot of high end Guitars people either love them or hate them - I joined the latar. Ken

  15. Wasn’t aiming to start a discussion - just asking for input in regards to price. But concluding from your replys I should not pay the full price he asks for. :-) Thanks!

  18. Seeing your list. Your 000 28 cs Should be everything a Clapton is. The problem is with these guitars. We have a tendency to want all of them.

  19. I’ve been through a number of Martins over the last 40 years and enjoy the tone and feel, the history and legacy of the company. I have a lot of respect for Martin as a company. With the exception of a D42, most of them have been mid to lower end priced instruments. They don’t seem to have staying power with me. Nothing keeps dragging me back to my senses like a good J45, however. rb

  20. Love Gibsons and Martins. My favorite Martins are the D18, the D15, and the 00-15. I have yet to love a Taylor, although I have liked them. I even played an AD27 which was sonically really nice.

  21. While doing my Martin search I found the 40 series guitars is what floats my boat I’ve had some very nice ones that could have been my forever guitar.

  22. Didn't you study Pavlov's dog at Ace Business school? That's you guys. Bell rings and you guys start reciting all the stuff they told you on TV. You forgot the stuff they taught you at business school. Now you're all flustered by basic health practices. Bell rings again and you're pulling some other complaint out of the ticket tumbler. Dude - Don't be so afraid of people who are smarter than you. They make it easier for people like you who get frustrated by complicated stuff. Doctors go to college three times so you don't have to. The key is to develop the self confidence you need

  23. Why do people assume that because there are so few of something the few that are are worth some egregious amount of money? There just might be so few because it wasn't a good idea. I don't remember people clamoring for those guitars at all. 2500 should buy three of them. rct

  25. I have a different point of view. When they are controlling a society based on advice of people who don't know what they are talking about, I don't see that as a good thing.. not at all.

  26. A friend of mine got his Slim Harpo ES-330 last Friday. He ordered from Gibson Online Shop. He said it sounds, looks and feels great. According to him the Slim Harpo business card justifies the extra $300 over the Casino 😉

  35. Wow a 30 year old brand new guitar - that is fantastic. Looks like a real beauty. I never had a Strat with the Lace Sensor pickups, but my buddy that I played with for about 15 years had them in his Strat and he could sure make them sound great. You are going to love that thing, congratulations 👍

  37. No mask, one mask, two masks: I'd say that is a sign of the experts learning more about how to control this plague. Science learns as it progresses. It makes mistakes along the way and it learns from both it's successes and failures. Having Fauci, CDC, WHO and others change their advice is not a bad thing, it's a good thing.

  45. One interesting thing I just noticed.. check out how the black part of the sunburst covers all the contours on the side of the body. This is apparently because Fender was using poplar for bodies at the time with an alder veneer on the front and back (for translucent finishes)

  46. I’m really excited about how this is gonna look. The neck came out really great too. I checked it with my profile gauge against my warmoth boatneck and mine came out almost identical but with slightly less shoulders. Which is pretty much exactly what I wanted so that’s nice. Should be great
