When buying a Martin check the glue joint of the binding,mostley the waste.Seen more then my fair share in the last 3 years.I don't do binding work anymore.

So you know the all of the  binding needs to be removed and redone as both the binding and the wood needs to be really,really cleaned.

Funny you should mention that.  I had a 17 series martin a few years ago, and the binding started separating at the waist where the guitar rested on my knee.  I assumed it was from the top shrinking, but humidifying attempts did not fix it.  Ended up trading it, and the kid at guitar center didn't notice.  Not my proudest moment, but I guess it's that old phrase "buyer beware".   whistling

I've got a friend who owns a lower-end Martin.  He was shocked to find out the rosette was a decal and not even inlayed?  It makes sense to keep costs down but such a cheap feature is kind of shocking to find on a USA-made Martin (this guitar is about 20 years old).  It's funny, in all my years of guitar playing, I've never really wanted a Martin very badly.  

Oh, and strictly on topic... No, I am most certainly not a thread-ender, at least not in this thread.
