I don't know wether or not I rock too hard or not but Martin II has taken a dump on me the body cracked right under the pick guard can't be good but intonation still sounds fine this dry ass Iowa weather.
Last January my Martin Dreadnaught died on me after being a faithful companion for 11 or so years I played with it too much and I broke it's back. But, fortunately The C.F. Martin guitar company called me up after I sent it in and said, "It can't be fixed Charlie, but since I can tell you played it so much were gonna send you a knew one and a better one." I could not believe it, but March 6th 2012 I received my new DR G 16 T and could not be more happy. If anyone has a story about Martin let me know or a similar story about an instrument. I will always miss my Old Guitar, but if it wasn't for the Martin company I wouldn't be playing any gigs this year because of the cost of these instruments is so great. Sincerely, CCRIDER
