Does anyone have, or at least remember having, one of those Martin electric guitars from the 1960s? Any love for them?
I'm not thinking of the Frankenstein versions of their acoustics with added pickups and knobs, but the true electrics, thin line hollow body F series or GTs. I knew a kid who had one (not sure which model) when I was in high school, and I remember playing it and thinking it was pretty good, but that was a long time ago. Martin also made amps, or at least had their name on some, but I never tried those.
A friend had one back then. He bought it primarily on the Martin reputation, and it was an unwieldy and ugly pos in my opinion. My 61’ SG LP was a 1000% better instrument.
