    Congrats, Rich! I played an MMV O model once at GC, nearly took it home with me. Good guitars at good prices for a real Martin.

    I love the looks, sounds and quality of Martin acoustics, yours is beautiful. My problem is I have never been able to bond with the somewhat chunky necks on Martins.

    How does your new Martin compare with a typical Gretsch neck?

    Well now, Rich, that's a pretty sweet guitar. Now we know it has a hard case BUT... does it have a jack plate? C'mon brother, fess up.

    I do think my Gretsch 6120 - 1959 does have a thinner neck . But my Gretsch 5422-12 string is chunkier than the 6120 and the Martin put together . I'm telling ya , go down to Guitar Center and try this model , you just may find it to your liking

    Thunder 58, some folks thought that I was nuts when I bought my first Martin. Some said that I paid too much. I didn't care or listen to any of them.

    This year will be it's 49th Birthday, it's aged better than me, and I'm still smiling like it's day one. Hope that you have the same years with yours.

    My 1970 D35S
