sweet guitar, but no dot inlays?

Lot of Martins don't have them. Neither of mine have them.

Psssh. I'd take it back. Someone stole the fret dots.





I know, that looks horribly fishy. Seriously though, it looks like a nice guitar man.

Agreed. We would also have accepted plush fluffy fret dots.

They were up until earlier this year, when the X-Series started being produced in their new Mexican factory. Aparently they just couldn't make a buck on the X while it was being produced stateside. Everything else however is still being made in Nazareth PA

I hate when people do that, its like "what, do you enjoy retuning that much?"

huh? why shouldn't you set your guitar down as it is in the first picture?

^ My dad used to tell me the same thing, that you can warp the neck by having it face away from the wall, where the weight it putting pressure in the same directions as the strings. It's nonsense, of course.

I believe the guitar is being held up by the chair, not the wall.

And it really doesn't make all that much of a difference which direction the guitar is facing. It should be on a stand anyway.

I make a point not to lay my guitar against a wall like the first pic just because sometimes you can end up leaning it on the keys and messing up the tuning. Not a huge deal, just annoying.

But like jim said, its on the chair, not the wall
