None of the fellas in the pic are me, I can't play electric worth a darn. This is the only forum I participate in and I haven't been to North Carolina, I am usually some where west of the missisppi. Out where the hoot owls chase the chickens.
The martin sounds great, but I wish they would have Yairi build the necks. It just don't play like the Yairi, not that it's bad just not up to the Yairi's quality. The tuners, neck and everything about the Yairi , breathes of quality. The G&L is really a quality guitar also I can't find any faults in it either. The martin and epiphone both sound great but they have some things I don't like also. I will be buying more Yairi's in the future. I have had this one for about 8 yrs it's always in tune, not affected by humidity and weather changes and is a real workhorse, it is showing some wear on the first fret second string area. I play all of them more equally now so it will last a long time. If it were stolen, after I come out of mourning I would go find another one.
