Thank you Gary.

Very strange.  I use Google Chrome exclusively.

I have no idea why it works for me and not you.

Comment by Kent Babcock on February 19, 2012 at 7:12pm

Now, that's bizarre.  It seems to work just fine in Firefox.  Chrome still is a no-go.

Thanks, Gary.  I'll try it in another browser.  In Google Chrome, I get a blank page with the URL in the address bar.  

Ed,  Gary's post shows the correct link, I believe

Hi Kent,

It's been a while, hope you are doing well!  I am not part of this Forum, but am interested!  Tell me how I can get there or please provide a link.  Thanks, Edward

Are any members of this group also members of the Unofficial Martin Guitar Forum on Yuku?   Site has been down at least two days and I'm kinda curious as to what happened.

The biggest complaint I hear on the MMV is that it is too bright.  Some of that can be dealt with by string selection.

By a sheer stroke of luck and lack of knowledge by the seller I was able to pick up a Custom shop 000 signed by Charles Martin IV for a price I am never going to reveal.

250 of these were made to to introduce the A/E series made at Martin and not retrofitted.  They were distributed to retailers to see if they would sell.  They sold like hotcakes.

The really nice thing about the Custom shop axes is the hand crafted aspect and perfect intonation--I hear absolutely no difference between the basic note and the harmonic.

Of course the frets are perfect, the neck is perfect, the action is superb, the woods are tonally superior.  The pickup is a nice Fishman and the latest versions had AURA but I am not crazy about AURA, I have had the blender since they put it out.

Sometimes you just get lucky.  My picking buddy says keep it cased up for increased value later on--no way, once you play it, you cannot put it away.  Been using it on my South Texas tour.  What a nice axe.
