Are you sure you want a 70's vintage Martin?

since when does "mid-80's onwards" translate as 70's?

Anyway, many of us who own actual 70's Martins are very fond of them. Also they cost like half as much as one five years older and are getting their own almost-vintage vibe.

Sorry, I don't know what happened there. Brain cramp I guess.
I've seen a couple of Martins made in the 70's that were ok, some others were junk and that's well known.

Some here might recall that back in the 1970s I won a Martin D-76 in a raffle at the Old Town School Of Folk Music in Chicago. The raffle ticket cost me $3.00 (three dollars). That's the dreadnought I added 3 strings to and played as a 9-string guitar on and off for the next 20 years or so---until my malady forced me to give up picking.

Fond memories. And the price sure was right.

There's a music shop in Northallerton that usually carries a good stock of Martins - I can't remember the name but they are just off the High Street.

I think some people are missing the point. Does it really matter which decade the guitar comes from? If it sounds OK it doesn't matter. I've played 50's Martins which sounded Sh*$te and actually own two 70's Martins which sound fine. Use your ears and don't get hung up on what is supposed to sound good.

hi guys,

the reason i put 80's onwards is that i have heard stories of the 70's martins not being top class, were they made by another company.

not being a martin expert i can only refer the articles i have read and hear say

budget upto £1500.00 - £2000.00

still looking

Kendall had a point, actually, even if he's also wrong.

The much-touted Martin quality-control did not seem very consistent in the 70's. My own '73 O-18 NEVER had correct intonation until a brilliant restoration/setup specialist totally--and invisibly--rerouted the saddle slot in 1993. It should never have left the factory like that, and had other defects as well! But now it's a lovely guitar and a family heirloom (cause my family kicked my ass when I tried to sell it off a few years ago).

I am confident that any 50's Martin, and probably any 70's Martin, that "sounds like shit" could sound great after the same specialist got ahold of it.

do you think that a company like martin with a reputation to keep, would never send out guitars that are not A1, or is it the case that they are too big, that there not bothered what goes out the factory door, as long as they sell.

i've heard martins in the 70's had a bridge problem, that they used to come away from the body, is it true?

I have a Martin D35 made in 1972 which had the same bridge problem. Dana Bourgoise filled the slot then re-cut it correctly - never a problem since! I believe that this was the period of the strike and poor labour relations and management were putting together the bits.
