Richard Bridge, you can "larf" all you want.

American craftsmanship and the "made in USA" stamp warrant the price of this repair by an accomplished American luthier.

A Martin D35 is a $2400 instrument and is one of the world renowned Martin Standard Series. In my 40 years of playing and meeting literally hundreds of musicians I am hard pressed to have ever seen a pro at least in America use a Hagstrom.

An original J-45 is of course a Gibson.
