    If you do a search on this site for " name that Martin " there is an interesting test on the different Martin sounds.http://http://forum.ukuleleunderground.com/showthread.php?75039-Name-that-martin!&highlight=martin+test

    Thanks Puk for that link... very interesting experiment! I liked number 5 the best but they all sounded great. That's good news for me as I ponder and consider buying my first Martin, which may turn out to be d-mace's S - 1 if the price is right. Thanks again for letting me know about the test... cheers, John

    A good way to compare colors in different pictures is to include a reference color like a photographer's "grey card" in each shot.

    Hi David... I sent you a PM today (August 1st) in answer to yours, but I can't see it in my sent folder so I'm not sure if it was sent or not... please let me know if nothing comes in today and I'll try again, cheers, John
