Re: What guitar do you play onboard?
I hear ya and agree. If I were going to leave one on the boat for more than a couple of nights at a time, I'd either want something indestructible like a Formica special or a pawn shop throwaway. But since I have to trailer for now, I can accept something in the middle.
I'll have to find a Little Martin to sit down with. I wasn't aware of them. I like the signature Martin sound for what it is but I'm more partial to Taylors. Actually, at the last Taylor Road Show I attended, I fell in love with a baritone guitar. Too many guitars, too little bank.
I did get the privilege of touring the Nazareth factory, though. Boy, you could really get a sense of history there. And it's a woodworker's dream. I've also toured the Taylor factory and the Gibson factory in Memphis. I'll never forget just after starting the Gibson tour, we passed by a station where a guy with a pallet stacked with unfinished hollow body electrics was SAWING THEM IN HALF through waists! They were the small percentage of rejects that they couldn't repair or recycle and had to destroy. I almost cried.
