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.

Good to hear that you are still plugging away at your trade, Rob.
I agree about the CFM 35 Series.
If I ever spot a good D35S [12-fret, slope shoulder, slothead] I might bite on that one and I'm not ordinarily even a fan of dreads.

Uncle Rob is right about the Martin 35 series; they are something special.

Much like Jean Larrivee did when designing the parlor to utilize smaller pieces of wood, Martin did the same thing in1965 to utilize the dwindling supply of smaller pieces of Brazilian rosewood.

In 2015, I ordered a custom Martin 12 fret 000 for my 60th birthday. This guitar was a hybrid combination of a D35S, HD35, OM35 and 00018 and includes the following features:

Premium Sitka Spruce Top
Three piece mahogany back and sides
12 fret, short scale, slotted headstock with gold Grover tuners and old style headstock decal
Low profile neck (1&3/4 inch)
Scalloped bracing
Tortoiseshell binding, heel cap, endpiece, teardrop pick guard, bridge pins
Herringbone trim
18 style position dots, rosette and backstrips
Archtop custom case

I also ordered a Forum VI iN June 2021 in anticipation of my retirement this year.

I just want to pass on some advice I heard the other day, since I don't want to be a thread ender:

"If you want something said, ask a man.  If you want something done, ask a woman.  And if you don't want anything said OR done...  ask a cat."

A young child told his mother “When I grow up I’m going to be a guitarist.”

His mother responded, “Well honey, you know you can’t do both.”

Hey Rob
Seems you’re using a Windows computer as I recall.
Chances are good you don’t need a new computer, assuming it is 6-7 years old or newer.
Windows Movie Maker 2016 Classic is Free and has basic movie making features. The Windows Movie Maker 2022 is Free Trial but much more powerful. Which means you can try the software for free.
