I have been a Martin lover, I should say coveter, since I only have a Little Martin LX1 w/spruce top, but I have put a bone saddle and pins and lowered the strings and it sounds a lot better than you would think from a 3/4 size guitar. I am looking at the 16 series martin, and after I sell a few guitars I will finally get the guitar I've always wanted, a Martin. Gary

Anyone had any experience with the Ian Anderson signature model (think it's a 000)?

stix,
I'm a drummer by profession but, I've been playing acoustic for about 4 years now and I just love it! I own a couple of inexpensive guitars and they are fine but, I really want to have a Martin when I grow up... well, OK, I AM grown up but, you know, I mean eventually.
I've had a couple of guitar adventures lately, one of which is a Martin story. First of all, I was on tour recently and was extremely privileged to borrow our Toronto bass-player’s Martin 016 New Yorker circa 1962. It is a glorious instrument – such warmth and tone I don’t think I have experienced before. I’m extremely covetous of this instrument. Alas! He will never sell. Still, my 2 weeks or so with it were incredible.

Secondly, while we were in Montreal, I was able to visit the Fine Arts Museum and see Yoko Ono’s “Imagine” exhibit. It is all about John and Yoko’s Bed-in for Peace, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary. While there, I was able to almost touch John’s Gibson J160E. It was in a glass case, mere inches from my fingers. So close! For a huge Beatles fan, it doesn't get much better.

There ya go!

Hi! I'm thinking about buying a d12-20. Anyone got any experience? I understand that the qualilty may depend on production year and that this model has had problems to stay tuned...

Hello everyone, I am fairly new in the guitar world. I currently play a Yamaha 720 which has pretty good tone. Is it worth the $ for a Martin just for the sound ?
