 *MARTIN SC-13E, 2021, New, Itís time to rethink what an acoustic-electric
        guitar can do. Do you want to play leads all the way up the neck? 
        Play longer? Play louder? Now you can with this super-comfortable,
        easy-to-play acoustic-electric from Martin. The all-new SC-13E, 
         with patent-pending Sure Alignģ neck system, gives you full access
        to all frets so you can comfortably reach those high notes. Itís 
        also equipped with a new, low-profile velocity neck barrel that
        ergonomically accommodates your hand as you move up the neck, 
        giving you the comfort and playability of an electric. It was 
        designed from the ground up to be plugged in, and its asymmetrical 
        body shape provides balanced output, giving you more gain before 
        feedback. So the next time youíre on stage with an SC-13E, go ahead,
         play it loud. But, donít forget, the SC-13E is still a Martin,
         so it sounds amazing unplugged. And with the limitations of the 
         conventional cutaway acoustic-electric removed, you can now play
         your way, any way, without limits, gigbag.....$1499

                We often get asked  "where do these guitars come from" ??? or "who buys these things" ??
                So here's an interesting picture of the quite rare White ES-345 (that we had for sale for about a year)
                with both it's original ( c. 1964), and current (April'06)  owners.

  Some have complained about bad pictures.  If this is happening to you or your PC, let me know.  We have Macs 
  and the pictures are large and clear, so we'd like to know figure out why this problem is happening
An answer from my brother Rick-
By default, Internet Explorer will shrink pictures to fit onto one screen.
That's probably what people are complaining about. Usually, if they hold the
cursor over the picture for a few seconds, a button will appear and they can
click it to restore the pic to full size. I hate the feature, so I just turn
it off and always see the photos full-size:

From the IE menu bar, click Tools | Internet Options
Click the Advanced tab
Scroll down to the Multimedia section
Remove the check from "Enable Automatic Image Resizing"
Click OK to save settings

       For you who don't know, we do all manner of guitar repair and restoration.  We do most of it here but 
      also give some work to Dom Ramos -repairing and building since working in Dan Armstrong's shop in 
      the '60s.  We've also been a Martin Warrantee Center since 1985 before Martin closed down all 5 NJ Centers 
      because of a tax dispute between NJ and Martin
