    Martin 5K mismatched tuners

    Although I bought this almost a year ago, I recently noticed that the tuner on the C string is different from the other three. For lack of a better description, it’s “shorter”. It really doesn’t affect anything but could this possibly be intentional for some reason? If not then it’s kind of...

    Distortion from overtones with pickup

    Have a Martin S1 with LR Baggs 5.0. When amplified it's making overtones enough to cause distortion. Example; if fretting 0 0 1 2 an overtone is produced equivalent to 2nd string 4th fret. This distorts the overall sound terribly. Just an example. Does it in other areas of the fret board as...

    New bridge for old Martin

    Shout out to Paul Unkert in Toms River NJ for the beautiful job on this reproduction bridge for my 1920 style 1 soprano. Strings just kept popping out of the old bridge slots.

    Booking web sites

    Has anyone had any experience getting gigs with any of the booking web sites like GigSalad or Gigmasters? Seems like you would be able to make back the signup fees after 1 or 2 gigs.

    Best years for vintage Martins?

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. This is what I wound up with. Style 1 circa 1920. It has fret markers at 5, 7, and 9. Maple nut and saddle so it's pretty early. Played it along side a 1930 and 1940 and the tone is just monstrous compared to those. The tuners and a back brace have been replaced...

    Best years for vintage Martins?

    Are there certain years of range of years that are more desirable for vintage Martin sopranos? Desirable in terms of sound not just collectible value.

    Too many wraps on tuner post?

    Is it true that wrapping a string too many times around the tuner post will cause tuning problems. Just recently put some T2's on Kamaka soprano. They are well stretched and settled but constantly drift out of tune even after warmed up and played for a while.
