Hey David, could you check that URL for the great tune video, it came up as a n error when I clicked on it.  Thanks, Edward

just strummed a Stelling guitar and heard about Huss & Dalton. I will search this site for info, but in the meantime, do these names mean anything to you? I vaguely recall Stelling banjos

how much did you pay for it?

I saw an 1870's 0-28  New York from San Diego (w/ original sales receipt) on Antiques Roadshow a few weeks back. It was in "perfect" condition and they valued it at $4000 (I think). Despite what it seems, I paid attention because I recently got an 1870 C.F. Martin, New York. 0-28. Mine is not in perfect condition but reasonably restorable. I got it from a homeless guy who carried it in his shopping cart :-o (it's a long story)!! I'm taking him to Guitar Center to get him a new guitar in that's suitable for the street.

A Martin guitar on the Antiques Roadshow.

Cheeez . . . why would you want to put that cover over any guitar? I'd rather view the beautiful wood than engraved leather.
Comment by Ed Rhoades on March 7, 2011 at 5:32am
I played that Elvis guitar. I expected it to sound bad because of the leather, but it sounded great. Imagine what it would sound like without the leather.

Hey,I am a sucker for tooled leather though,not on a guitar.<LOL>

Terry to tell you truth, I don't know how we got off on that...but it wasn't a Martin topic, that's for sure!  Okay guys, let's get focused...How about that leather cover on the Gibson on the cover of AG this month...had to have been a tone killer, but Elvis had one on his guitar and it was a Martin!   Seriously though, what a crime to put an overcoat on a beautiful Martin!  Edward

I love how the Martin Group delves into things that sometimes "appear" to be non-Martin!  As long as they are musically oriented....they are still Martin in my view.  After that not what Martin is about?  The pursuit of music?

And I fully appreciate Terry's ;-)!!!
