Martin Closeup

"Thank you again! This little one doesn't EVER leave the house. No cracks - plays and sounds beautiful. I bought it from the same music dealer in Worcester where I ordered the Taylor, only several years earlier. The Martin was my first…"

Taylor Koa Jumbo

"Thank you. This Taylor has a bit of a story. I ordered it from a music dealer in Worcester, MA. Bob Taylor got all excited when he got the order and decided he was going to make it new model. Two weeks later, he called back to let me know he was…"

"When I was logged in yesterday, I noticed your video was right there along with the music videos. Not sure if there is a more visible way to promote it. I do remmber receiving what seemed like a very brief mass email within the community. I have…"

jrmc52 replied to Gary Dupuis's discussion What was your first acoustic guitar??
"Reading these posts and reminiscing over some of the older brands has been a lot of fun. An acquaintance (and Grammy winning fingerstyle guitarist), Ed Gerhard, decided to try on a project by acquiring a number of really old and cheap brands - Kays,…"

jrmc52 replied to Jesse C. Greer's discussion Setup on a new guitar
"Jesse, There is no such thing as an "old man" - try seasoned or experienced instead. A set up should be done on any new guitar, although it sounds like a duplication of work - after all, this is a new guitar. A guitar is made from pieces…"

jrmc52 commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"Hi All, Although I only have one Martin, I thought I qualified to join the group. My Martin is a 1928 0-18 K2 (Koa all around) with curved fingerboard. I bought this instrument around 1988. It is absolutely a player with no cracks. I am careful to…"

jrmc52 replied to Kevin O'Brian's discussion If I Only Had a Brain Flatpicking Tab?
"Kevin, Livingston Taylor has a very clever fingerstyle version of this song. I learned his version. Without an instrument in hand right now, I can't be sure if you could convert it to flatpick, but you sure could give it a try. Don't…"
