Subject: RE: guitars: OO Martin Sing Out!
Yeah, of all the guitars I have owned and unloaded over time, my old Martin M 36 is the only one I truly regret giving up. [The M 36 was a slightly plainer version of the M 38, with a three-piece rosewood back instead of a two-piece.] The body style is larger than a 000 when viewed from the front, but shallower than a dreadnought. So you get the rich low end without the "woof," and it's more comfortable under your right arm. It's too bad Martin hasn't continued these models.

As an old Martin fan of many decades' standing, who is now engaged in a torrid love affair with a new Taylor, I mean, TGTDNSIN, 414, I suggest that all of what you say applies in equal degree to the Taylor, I mean TGTDNSIN, "Grand Auditorium" (x14) models.

Usual disclaimers.

Peter.
