Subject: RE: Help: Martin OOCXMAE guitar
OK, Maybe I shouldn't skewer the cardboard Martin--but still, Isn't it funny to think about those things being a MARTIN?

Funnier still to think about the raging rock and roll act where the grand finale is the smashing of the guitar on the stage--and nobody cares--or they cheer for the right reason. Or, more likely, no amount of smashing can actually break through the formica veneer.

Imagine fifty years from now someone finds an old guitar case up in the attic of an abandoned house (you know--you've heard the stories of great guitars found in granny's attic). They gingerly open the case only to find a '00 Martin, close the case and leave it there.

Does rosewood formica cost more than mahogany formica?
