GUEST,Songbob Martin 000-28ec guitar - opinions? (37) RE: Martin 000-28ec guitar - opinions? 28 Mar 11


I heard a story today about a different performer's model Martin -- the Joan Baez. When it was being planned, they took her original and disassembled it to measure each brace, etc., then reassembled it and gave it back. They said the new ones were exactly the same (save for age) -- even to the inscription on the inside of the top.

"Inscription?" she said.

"Yes. It was probably a repairman from earlier in its career. He wrote, 'Too bad you're a Communist!' inside it."

That's the story I was told, anyway. It might be false. It might even be true. Hell, Louis Armstrong probably didn't even talk about a horse singing, either.
