You'll have to post some music from it when you get all repaired. I bet it sounds great. Little guitars can sound awesome and the 12 fret to the body means that the bridge is set in a better place to give tone. Looking forward to hearing it.

Hello Lucky, welcome to the forum.

LOL, After re-reading my post above yours...I sure sounded like a total n00b there, didn't I!!!

Billywhitebread....can't hurt trying can it. lol

OK, so I'm not as lucky as I thought.....I was a little scared of applying to much clamp pressure during the re-glue up , all I succeeded in was to re attach it with-out bringing it all the way down to the body....:crying2: So I've got an appointment today at 3:00pm with a local luthier from a shop I frequent and I'm gonna let him do it right. While surfing the Martin site I read a few things about having the neck re-set on older models...supposedly making them play better and not hurt re-sale value if professionally done, so I'll check into that with him as well. anyways here a little tidbit of it while I'll got the strings on it, please keep in mind my level of experience and the fact that this is a cheap mic and I'm not to sure on these strings, some Elixir's extra lights I had lying here. I'll post again when I get it back. Should of listened to the help in tech I recieved to begin with:hammers:

Nice one x4stringlucky, good decision on the Luthier always worth looking after a Martin, on a seperate note, I'm a Gardener by profession and I just have to compliment you on the condition of your flowerbeds they look great (apologies for straying from the subject). The guitar is a little beauty you are indeed a lucky man.
