When my dog bends over, thats what looks like.......No, really, Breeedloves Guitars also have a unique sound hole, even off center

You bet guys, sorry. I think I started this. Just a curiosity that sorta mushroomed in the wrong direction maybe. Back to the subject of Pete's guitar design... I'm really curious as to how that triangular sound hole came about. I don't believe I've ever seen it anywhere else except on Pete's guitar. Was that an original with Martin?

Don't guess we'll be discussing lyrics of some of the Most Famous Matin Guitarist & Song Writers, only Pop, Buble Gum, etc...... Didn't realize we had such a large concurrence of opinion in such a short couple minutes...........ease up " trigger"........

All -

Please. A lot of us come to this site to get away from politics. I know there are a lot of folks out there right now who are holding back replying to these comments - follks who know the Constitution and the dangers of social engineering. And good for them to have the willpower to hold back.

'Nuff said. I'm asking if we can please keep our conversations to guitars, music, and what we have in common as opposed to what we don't agree on?

Even Pete Seeger has written on his banjo about music being a machine that breaks down fascism, etc.

Communist play Martins, also! I don't think Al Gore, Obama, or Jimmy Carter degregate the Nobel Piece Prize an most likely have Martin Guitars. Thinking on it.......
Comment by Michael S. Jackson on February 7, 2011 at 5:53pm
Yeah, I think we should leave politics, and the degradation of the Nobel Peace Prize the past several years, out of this group. But I did want to mention that I met Pete once. Believe me... you don't want to meet him.

The late Dave Van Ronk put the early folk music scene, including its infatuation with communism in perspective in his book "Mayor of MacDougal Street".  The book is a good read.   From Van Ronk's perspective there was quite a fissure among American Communists during the Stalin take over and purge which followed.  And many suffered under the McCarthy witch hunt era.

Any way....I was very fond of both Van Ronk and Seeger as performers regardless of their politics.  They were not only a part of "the great folk scare" themselves...put supported many others.   But I digress....I didn't intend to bring politics into this community.

Pete wasn't a Communist, he was a Working Mans' American. In the 60s an during WW 2 Politicians feared the preponderance of demonstrators an labeled many as communist, I.e., Jane Fonda, John Lennon, me an others. But Pete is a folk hero
