    Needs a neck reset....ALL Martins need this done at some point. If you're the original owner, you can have the repair done under warranty. If it's a 15 or 16 series, it's a bolt on neck and the repair is much more simple than with the dovetail...(more)

    We ended up with more than 140 entries...about $1420 raised for Habitat for Humanity's Asian relief effort. Shanna Gowenlock from Atlanta won the guitar. Thanks to all who donated in this time of need in SE Asia. Dave

    Follow the supplied instructions to the letter; however, you will probably have to re position...that's why they supply the extra adhesive. I found the I beam to be a bit midrangey although it doesn't have the quack of most under saddle types....(more)

    Seems like I've been in an election year slump...doing OK but not great. I sold a guitar to a fellow in PA last year, but I dumped my hard drive a few weeks ago, and am having a tough time finding his address. I don't sell through dealers, so ...(more)

    Stewart MacDonald sells stain that is lacquer compatible. Usually the process is to stain the raw wood, and also to tint the first few topcoats with the stain too. This helps to even out the color.
