    Looking at their asking price, it is nice to see that optimism is still alive and well in today's world.

    I'm glad I haven't been bitten by the vintage bug. Would you have to be bitten by a malaria carrying mosquito to pay almost $1k for that?

    I'll take a Timms and a shelf full of song books thanks.

    That doesn't look like playwear to me. Looks like mold and/or water damage.

    At that price they must think that the thinned top has greatly improved the sound or that the Martin Market is going wild.
    If any of my rescues are now in that price range, SELL SELL SELL unless you think you've got a Stradivarius.
