Martin's 'no info policy' is so damned ridiculous and quite wierd and suspicious, as their integrity seems undermined by the stance.  I was interested in buying an old D18 that was purported to have had a Martin factory neck reset.  I wanted to verify but they wouldn't even tell me based on serial # alone whether or not it even passed through their door.  Very customer unfriendly.

Dan, I'd love to do that also but figured it next to impossible without Martin's help!

Ron ... yep, pulled by the owner.

Michael, that seemed like a really good price to me.  Not sure how good though.  You probably have a better handle on it than me.

Does anyone know of a way to trace the original owner of a Martin? I have contacted Martin Co. & they said that they were not allowed to give out that info. I have serial # and can trace when it was made.

I thought 1300 was about right. What do they usually go for nowadays?

Picked up my HD-28 this afternoon.  Hard to put it down, I'm having so much fun playing it.  What a nice day!

Judd, Linky no longer worky.  Too good to be true.

Shouldn't make any difference.
