GUEST,JAG Sigma Guitars (794* d) RE: sigma guitars 16 Aug 08

I have a Sigma DM-5, circa 1976. When I got it, the action was too high and the sound was a bit muddy. I took it to a guitar shop, had both the bridge and the nut replaced with bone, the frets filed, and the action lowered. After those modifications, the guitar sounded wonderful and played beautifully. And still does in 2008. In my book, the Sigma DM-5, when properly finished, is a Japanese Martin classic. Amazingly, they are still relatively cheap, albeit without modifications. So, if you are lucky enough to find one of these guitars and are willing to put a little money into it, you'll have a friend for life. -JAG
