Martin J40

I've had and played a Martin J40 since 2005, and it's a lovely instrument.  I have never, however, seen a single one played by any guitarist or singer-songwriter or CW band member--no one!Has anyone ever seen a "pro" play a J40 on stage or in a music video?See More

"Wonderful evening seeing Judy Collins! Her voice was impeccable, and she hit every note. I just wasn't thrilled with her choice of songs and I guess at 75 a full hour of singing and playing is enough."

Steve,

Considering the repetoire, I'd love to be able to cover, I think I've got a "lifetime of learning" to do.

I remember a "tutor" once saying, " learning should be a lifetime situation". Sounds familiar to me.

Best wishes,

Albert.

Hello Steve.

Whilst perusing the site came acros the "Old Folkies" and your site.

I'm one of those many 60's teenagers - I beleve a group called The Beatles had "some impact" on the music scene then!!??. I, personally had a preference for a group called The Shadows (British Group). Take a listen to their renditions of Five Hundred Miles, A Little Bitty Tear, Let it be me, San Francisco etc. However, I had heard of and listened to various other artists also, namely The Sprigfields - Island of Dreams etc., The Seekers - The Carnival is Over etc., Donovan - Colours etc. Bob Dylan - The Times They are a Changing etc., Simon and Garfunkel - I am a rock etc. and so on.

Took up "learning the guitar" late sixties. Still "working at it".

Best wishes,

Albert (E. C. Hemmings).

I hope I can say I am still playing at 66 and the only problem is that I can not cleanly bar the F chord. Keep strumming and playing.

The last time I asked a dealer this question, I was told that the backpacker and the LX models (HPL and matte finished spruce tops) were made in Mexico. These all have labels saying so.

I also heard a rumor that all CFM's with "Stratabond" necks were made in Mexico. These are the laminated wood necks like those used on the LX models. However, during my last trip to the CFM factory I witnessed many stratabond necks in the production line. I beleive the new D-1 is made in Nazareth and does have a Stratabond neck.

I believe none of the CFM guitars using glossy finished wood tops are made in Mexico.

So.....if you have a stratabond neck and a matte finished spruce top or HPL top....it's probably Mexican. However, I believe they also all indicate "Made in Mexico" accordingly.

CFMartin IV indicated at the last Owner's Group meeting, that they have not perfected the fine wood finishing at the Mexican factory "yet". They are probably working on it.
