Thread Name: Buying a new Martin guitar
Subject: RE: Buying a new Martin guitar
I didn't say any of those things, Backwoodsman.

My guitar, which happens to be a Lowden, "blew away" all the Martins I tried (and the Taylors and whatever else was there) and I've only played one modern Martin which I liked as much as my Lowden.

But that's that. If I were choosing a guitar without hearing it (which I wouldn't do) of co course I'd choose Lowden over Martin, as all my experience tells me they are more for me. But, in actuality I'd listen in fairly beforehand of course.

I've probably only played 7 or 8 Martins, I guess I've just been unlucky in getting the unwieldly clunkers.
