Congratulations Sandy. I am sure you will like the 15-S. It has become my main steel-string guitar and I can't remember when I have played any other recently. I also found that I was having right-arm trouble with necks that join at the 14th fret which goes away with 12 fret ones.

I was in Phila in Feb and had three weeks to find my Martin. I rang all over and one day "Acoustic Roots" in Jenkintown responded that they just got three.

I ran over with a friend who can play and tried it out for some time, listening to my friend playing as I walked around the room, etc. "To hell with un-cooperative airline personnel and the like! I want it!" So I bought it and took it all the way to Sydney with absolutely no hassle about bringing it in the cabin. (Kudos to Japan Air Lines all the way.) It must have just come out of the Martin factory. I can still smell the mahagony (and glue, etc.)

Mudlark: Mance Lipscomb played a Harmony. I have always wondered how you put the strings on them. They seem to have no bridge-pin arrangement.
