I had finely become financially able to afford a really good instrument after years of playing an inexpensive house guitar. I was so proud of my new Martin D28 guitar. I would go anywhere I was invited, to show it off.
It was 1972. I had 14 guitars. Both acoustic and electric. My oldest one was a 1969 Fender Mustang. My newest was a 1971 Martin 000-18. I hardly played the Mustang but I did on this day….
It seemed like everywhere you turned were Hawaiian themed ukuleles displays. All the major guitar manufacturers like Martin, Fender, Gibson, etc are getting into the act but the uke rage..
I have 1968 Martin D-28 whose neck has been broken twice, the first time by US Air on a trip to Binghamton my guitar ended up in Elmira.
