Hi all. New to this forum but been a frequent visitor. My question is this...I have a beautiful vintage Martin style 0 soprano, and I was wondering if anyone had any insight as to how sturdy these things are? I ask because I plan to start hitting open mics once everything starts settling down and opening back up. It’s in excellent condition and I take very good care of my instruments but it’s quite old and it just feels so fragile. I’ve been considering getting something new for that purpose, but I know it just won’t sound the same. My Martin is so resonant and I know that’s due to the the light construction. It’s also the only soprano I’ve ever had that actual sounds really cool with low g! So any input is welcome, especially from fellow vintage Martin owners. Thanks!
