Anonny Mouse Why are Martin Guitars so expensive? (284* d) RE: Why are Martin Guitars so expensive? 28 Feb 06

Any of you fellas hear of a gent named Wayne Henderson? Guess he takes forever to build a git-but what he builds out Martins Martin. Some book or something out on him crafting "the perfect guitar" for Clapton, by Allen St. John. Anyway, I hear tell this Henderson guy is a bit on the eccentric side, but builds one whale of a guitar; and you can't "order" one from him. I'm not sure how one goes about getting a Henderson, but they're pretty well priceless and may take 10 years to get one once you DO order it! Hand carves practically the whole thing. Amazing luthier. The book by St. John is a must-read for anyone serious about the art of building a guitar.
