Went to take Goldie in to see the guitar doctor. Bad news. Goldie’s fret buzz is a big hump on the neck at the body joint. Glad she only cost me less than $200. So, photo shoot tomorrow and then an ad on Craigs list. Went to Guitar Center. Black Friday specials are out. They had a cheap Koa Martin and Martin X1AE 000 for $479. I played them both. They’re bigger than I like but I’m sad to say,  I loved them both. So, my Taylor now has a photo shoot tomorrow too and will right along side of Goldie on Craig’s list. Then after Guitar Center I went to see a Fender Paramount PM 2 Deluxe. I’ve been drooling over for about 5 months now. $1100. Out the door. Penny better be good or she’s going too. Lol

Sorry to hear about Goldie. So are you selling the others so you can get the Martins? Let us know how the Craigslist sale goes. 

I don't go to Guitar Center anymore unless there is something I'm sure I want to buy. I have a problem with impulse buying so try to stay away from there, LOL.

 That Martin X1AE 000 cost 650 pounds here! That's $862 And it has laminated back and sides.

 

For $479 US  (360 pounds) It would be a great deal, and i'm told Martin's HPL laminates work well and are very popular with people who live in places with changing climates as the wood doesn't expand.
