Edward ...Yes, just the simple one.  Nothing fancy.  Does a real good job though.

Is your's the Fishman "Analog" F1?

Comment by Jud Hair on February 1, 2012 at 6:08pm

Edward ... it has the Fishman F-1 pickup.  Simplified version of the new Aura system.  Not nearly as sophisticated as the Aura, but then I'm not a particularly sophisticated guitaist, LOL.

Hey Robert,

I have a '72 000-28 too! Mine is NOT in mint condition (I traded it for one of my own builds and it came to me that way). We should compare serial numbers....maybe they're sisters, or brothers, or cousins......or next door neighbors LOL

Welcome!

Just a little more regarding Chris' father who 'retired' from the guitar making business. I just checked in my Martin books & he was indeed an alcoholic who really had no interest in making guitars. It wasn't so much that he did it wrong, as much as he didn't do it at all. He had products brought in from Asia, he tried branching out to include banjos & mandolins etc, but he was lousy at salers, &  his heart was in none of it. He finally retired & allowed his son (at that time studying to be a marine biologist in California) to come back home & study under his grandfather. The rest is history.

Hey Robert, Although I don't own one, I love the 0,00, and 000 Martin models.  Looking forward to seeing the pictures of yours.  Edward

Hey Jud, love the cutaway!  What type of PU system is in there?  Edward

Well, I'm known mainly around AGM online as the "Seagull" guy, but I have a Martin as well and since I've been a member here for quite a while it just occured to me that I hadn't posted a pic of my Martin DCPA-4 ... so, here it is.

Hey Ed,   My martin is a 000-28 built in 1972.  I have kept it in mint condition.

Had the neck adjusted about 4 years ago.  I'll take some pictures and post. Robert Blanford

Robert Blanford...welcome to the group!  Please tell us more about your Martin and post some pics if you'd like...we just love this kinda stuff!  Edward
