  1. Been there done that, spent all night sweating like a mule eating briars, and I don't mean ice cream either!!! I was told by the factory customer service rep. at Martin what to get and how to apply it to my $10.000 guitar and it like to caused me a heart attack scrubbing so hard and long just to get it off !!! it did remove the light scratches and medium ones that I wanted to remove but I want be doing it myself again. So a word to the wise have a expert do it because it not DIY project that for sure. Also the other post above are right on IMO about high end guitars that's all I buy now and when they are defaced as you described they are no longer a top end guitar they are fancy players only and if you pay the top end price you are sitting yourself up for a big loss money wise should you want to sell it later !!! Good look and choose wisely.

  2. Well to really we need to look back to the onset of the likes of the Carter Family, Bill Monroe Father Bluegrass ,Doc Wartson, Woody Gutherie, Author{GuitarBogie}Smith, Roy Rogers and Gene Authery, Elvis, Conway Tweety, Carl Perkins, The Grand Old Oper performers, Simon and Garfunkel, Peter-Paul and Mary, BoB Dilion, The Mama's and the Papa's,, . Southern Gospel performers too many to mention. Blues players like Robert Johnson, etc. Jazz players, Tex Ritter, Red Survine, John Denver, And the list goes on, these and many more are what made and make up Americana !!!

  3. I'am a tradition type guy so I like the full bodied guitar, but I have played several cut aways it,s easer to play notes at the 12th fret and higher that way, but it all in the mind set of the player my dot 335 is a double cutaway so their you have it. Use the right Guitar for the Job !!!

  4. Different strings do different things or make a Guitar sound totaly different like a medium sting in P.B. gives a thicker low and med's[tremble} sound verses a light sting give a thiner brighter sound to the same guitar and theres even more sounds with different brands etc. It's cheaper to try this approach first.
