Ed - Some cool protoypes there. I see one is in bubinga... I have a guitar with bubinga (African Koa) sides and back. Interesting wood. Sure is purdy. Slight difference in sound (not as boomy) but that might not be because of the bubinga.

Chris, see the article in this recent delivery of AG. Most likely replace the top, but I think Martin Co. Would replace the Guitar under lifetime Warranty. Be interesting to know they're response, file a claim & return to Martin, see what happens, let us know! Good luck!

Sounds like you side-stepped a potentially bad deal. I retired two years ago and the three years prior to my retirement I bought guitars and sound equipment. I bought several guitars that totaled, well, a lot in price. I even borrowed money to do so. I knew that after retirement I wouldn't be able to do that and know what? I sure am glad I did. The best advice I can give anyone is if you find a guitar you love - make it work. I've not heard of anyone regretting doing that. 'Nuff said. Good luck!

What's wrong with a second mortgage!!! Can you think of a better reason?  ;-) Edward

Be good if this Martin Catagory had sub category, so when u get an email response, it had the member name, rather than just the Martin Group/Catagory.....

Mark, outstanding! That may be as close as I get to one without taking out a 2 nd mortgage!

One thing that has me cranked uo over this is, ok, I missed the Brazilian wood models an Purchasing a vintage is beyond my piggy bank, but as you say, I think soon the Rosewood may become Vintage as well, hence leaving me in the dust. See, like all things that become rare/regulated and demand remains, the cost/price goes up; therefore, it only makes since that teetering on this economic/green/reg/govt environment, that to purchase one now could only mean it would appreciate in value rather quickly; I'd like to not only check off this " bucket list" item but get in on the investment aspects prior to being out-priced again, hence another unfufilled dream. (Not quite that Serious but you get the pic)
