Controversial New Martin Guitar

Recommended Posts

.

Why controversial? . Martin has a long and infamous history of bad/butt-ugly finishes and this goofy ditty seems to fit right in. . B)

With the painted models all in a row there, I can see having them ALL as a collection....and hiding the Hooch one among them. Would probably anticipate he release of the Crack Guitar next! ( I am pretty sure everone is around here is on meth/crack - too much yelling and screaming and tears and cars tearing off - hooch smokers are generally pretty quiet........my friend Big Jim is going to this and going to do that and bring this over and.....someone offers a spliff and next he becomes Little Jim and quietly disappears.......... :mellow: )

There was just a thread on UMGF titled ' Dave? Dave's not home'.

 

So it could become the 'Dave's not home guitar'.

 

Which like politicians, the company has waited a fair while and made sure the numbers are on their side - I mean that C&C record was from about 1971! It wasn't banned here then because the politicians then didn't have a clue what it was about! ( there is an area here where all the residents still think it is 1971.... lots of craft shops and the like - annoying symptoms being things like calling someone to say they are coming over at lunchtime - what is your lunchtime? 12 noon, 12.30, 1pm, 1.30pm etc.... AND then they don't turn up at all and you get a phone text at 9pm to say they aren't coming? So what happened between the call and the text? Pipes!)

Yep, gone!

 

 

Jerry Garcia must be rolling, and rocking, in his grave. I can almost hear him cackling, he would be hysterical! :o :o :o

 

 

Is that you that fiddled with the Martin machinery, Jerry?

Braaahahahahahahahahahahaha . . .

 

Oh yah . . . yer right. Looks like Martin thought better of promoting legalized marijuana use and pulled the 420. . [lol]

 

Hey BK - The sh!t hit the fan over at UMGF. The thread that originally had all the bickering posts - The other shoes (NAMM 2017) have dropped! - had posts deleted/edited by the mods. One member struck back - once, then twice. Then the hammer came down.

 

Oh what fires there were to stoke, when Martin decided to promo smoke. . B)

The hooch guitar has disappeared off the Martin site new guitar section!

 

Political pressure or web site mistake?

Well, I wouldn't buy it, but I wouldn't buy their other "art" guitars either. It's not what I look for in an instrument. That said, obviously somebody buys these cowboy guitars and Louvin Bros guitars and the like, so I have to assume the Martin marketers know what they're doing. I guess they're like baseball cards or something--celebrating American cultural icons. Weed is an important topic these days in legal, economic and political circles. It is legal in a few places, and apparently this artwork is a serious creation. So, why not make it a guitar. It makes more sense to me than a $150,000 watch-themed waste of good wood that no one will play. The only thing I don't get is the numeric designation. What is 420 all about?

 

 

No kiddin'. Guess it's been too long since I partook cuz I did not know that. I feel so--unfreaky... [confused] . Of course, in my day we didn't worry what time it was.

Martin is over the top with this 420 garbage. Promoting the "weed" image is kind of funny to this old hippy msp_cool.gif

As my grandad would have said "Just in time to be late."
