Even the guys at Norlin didn't understand the pickguards on that guitar.. <g>
Why not? Surely the world was clamouring for a steel-string flamenco guitar with a 2" nut...
Actually, I once owned this guitar's twin and it was a surprisingly fine-sounding instrument....easily on par with any LG-2 or LG-3 I've played.
As snarkle said, the double pickguards are usually a flamenco thing...
I believe Bob Dylan has a black Martin with double white pickguards, though I couldn't track down a picture of it last time I wanted to.
I know thats not the inverted guitar. I can't find a picture either. But here's some of my favourite artists with dual guards.
It's not a dual guard but a large guard none the less!
How about a multi-level pickguard?
Does all that plastic on the top have an effect on the tone?
Not mine, but this is the first dual guard guitar I recall ever seeing.
Has to have some sort of effect. Most of your sound is going to come out of the sound hole anyhow though.
That's the one I was thinking of, if I remember right, Martin didn't originally make it for Dylan, but he saw it somewhere, and they happily made him a second one. I wish I had that sort of pull.
