Subject: RE: Calling all Martin Guitar Nerds
`rick, what I meant was partly a reference to the 018's rather humble position in the pantheon. I think of it as a kind of a Shaker guitar, its plain features and perfect proportions bespeak an elegant marriage of form and function. (I've recently been playing mine more than the Lowden, cause it's just so relaxing.)

And also, single-oughts are still undervalued in the market as far as I can see, compared to the bigger ones. I notice some of the serious collectors are seeking them out, for that reason I suspect.
