That Martin is one beautiful guitar! My hummingbird 12 string is back to its original condition… Beautiful! If anyone's looking for a good Luther try Rob Sherman in Napa.

@Robert...I guess I LOVE 'em too!!! I can only think of one more(ha) to "eventually" add, but I'm done with GAS for a while!! I don't think my Buddy is in any hurry to sell his '74 D12-41...looking forward to getting Arlo back in a couple of weeks. I only had a few days to play it so far!!

Very nice, Michael.  Enjoy.  I love Martin 12's. 

And, to Dave F. - once in a while? ;)  I played mine exclusively for something like 40 years. (I did finally break down and get a 6 string [Taylor] just for variety.)

Damn... Robert, you should have re-direct her GAS attak toward the D-35... BUY it... and compensate with a couple of heavy woolly pullovers... eheheh...

Comment by Robert on Saturday

I've got the wife, just not the $.  Recently went to a local store where SHE had a GAS attack over a Martin SWOMGT.  First steel string guitar I've gotten her to play in over 40 years!  AND they had a D-35 that would have been a great companion to my D12-35.  But we're reassembling a PA system right now and heating season is coming on...

mmm... if there's a disease I've never been affected is envy... but... how does it comes that Michael and Alan have those rare kind of wives who love their husbands and their husbands' guitars too ???!!! I'm sure them both deserve this happiness... In my next life I'll marry an overseas girl!.. Wish me good luck!

Michael, the strings spacing seems very narrow... it's my optical sensation?

Anyway... very good purchase!

Congrats Michael. Looking forward to more pics when you get it back from being brought up to its finest condition.
