    I'm seriously thinking about selling all non-soprano Martins I have in my collection at some point. My hands just don't work as well as they used to and the tenors just get no play time. I also have...

    Absolutely if I played tenor's this would be sold. It's a fantastic price on a now discontinued Martin. Someone should jump on this for sure.

    It is made in Nazareth and it is kerfed. In my opinion, this is the closest Martin has gotten to the way they made the vintage Style 1's . Also, they sound vintage as well.

    I personally think I'd either burn it or hang it in my shop. If I was a builder, I would consider what might happen to this one once it's released to the public or even giving it away. You never...

    I think Martin needed to differentiate their ukulele lineup and the OX in all builds was just to close to the all-wood S1 in price point. I think in retail there was about $80 difference and most...

    True Martin fans know the first thing you do when looking at or buying a Martin branded instrument is stick your nose in the sound hole and have a good sniff. It's a well documented phenomenon.

    Jerry, it's reminiscent of old Martin Guitars that were built with hide glue. But, it also has to do with the Koa I believe because some of my 3K's smell the same way but not quite a strong.
