OK, here is the deal. The best Martin available for the sort of money you are talking, that looks and sounds the part for the blues or folk or country, that has a unique sound, plenty of volume, is robust and is drop-dead cool is a 1960s...

Re: Soundhole Tuner (reply)
My guitars moan and sigh when in the vicinity of a performance. Is ambient sound a problem?

Re: clarence white guitars (reply)
There are instructions on posting pics in the FAQ section. Nice score, congratulations! I can't comment on the relative merits of the guitars, but I can say that Clarence White was a heck of a picker.
