"Back in 1978 with 3 young kids and not much else, my wonderful wife and I managed to scrape together $600 to buy me a heavily gigged used '70 D-28. It had the "killer tone" and a badly worn neck, and I'm happy to say I still…"

Martin Owners

For those who own one or more Martin guitars, those who want to own a Martin, or those who just like talking about Martins
Edward Sparks commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"Beautiful guitar Joey, I have one too, a 1976 D-28.  I also have a 1980 D-28-12. The 6 string is my home and writing/recording guitar.  I have others I tke on stage and on the road!  "
Dave Fengler commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"The Martin Uke finally went for $414. I love the look of the Gibson Hummingbird but I'd rather have a D-28.  I have a 1977 Yamaha FG-350W, which is a copy of the D-28, spruce over rosewood.  Loud and boomy!!"

"thank you, it's a 2013. just what I was looking for, brand new their $2500 "vintage" is crazy, a year or two old is perfect. kind of like a car, only better."

"finally, after playing guitar since age 15 I own a Martin D-28. absolutely the best acoustic I have ever owned. in the early '90's I had a low level endorsement (very low level) with Gibson. I was able to borrow anything, so I had a…"

"I also posted this on the Levin/Goya page.  Apparently about 200 D-18s were built in Sweden at the Levin factory shortly after Martin bought Levin.  They were labeled LD-18.  Have any of you ever seen one of these guitars?  I…"

"Mere pocket money for a man of your resources Jim! They seem to go for a bit less than that going by recent eBay sales. However a thing is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, so good luck to them. Suppose it's better than putting…"

"I think it's over $3000 at George's Guitars in Cobourg, Ontario.  The original tuners are still in the case."

"I didn't notice the ugly tuners.  They need to go.  Quickly!"

Mike Raeburn commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners

Hey Jim,
I know you like (as do I) Dan you play one of his called "Make Love Stay?" The original on the album was from the 80's and it is pretty upbeat...but his live versions were much more mellow and slower...beautiful really. There is a live DVD he has out that is really incredible, but the best part in my opinion is the acoustic set he does in the middle of it...really great. He even does a fingerpicked blues tuine that he plays slide on...not typical Fogelberg! It is called
"Dan Fogelberg Live: Greetings from tthe West
and there is also a CD audio version of the best of it. If you haven't seen it, it is a must have!
