Thread Name: Small Guitars?
Subject: RE: Small Guitars?
I've had the mini Martin for about 3 years now and I play it a lot when I just want to pick up something quick and easy while waiting for the missus to get ready etc. I have also travelled extensively with it and it helps pass the time in hotel rooms.....never had a problem on any airline. Only trouble was when i left it in the trunk of my car one day in desert heat....the neck is composite, (top is spruce) The neck warped which made playing that night in front of some friend nearly impossible. The neck has gone back into shape and I raised the action slightly to compensate a little so it still sounds great. It's still a substitute for a real guitar but a very reasonable substitute especially if you hate not being able to play when you travel.
