#beginquote# We did get to the Martin guitar factory thi afternoon. A very high tech facility. Everything that has to do with producing a guitar is done on site, fro the rough-cut woods to the final polishing and inspection. They even manufacture any machinery in their own cnc shop. They are in the process of constructing an on site museum which will be complete sometime in November. It was a great experience to see all the steps involved in the making of a guitar. I still don't really care for the feel of the necks, but the guide,(who also works in the factory), said they can make a neck to my specifications. I told him about my nephew who was in Afganistan shortly after 9/11, who lived in the Bethlehem area, and how Martin heard about his tour and sent him a letter thanking him for his service, with pictures of his daughter, 100 dollars, and his choice of any guitar the company made. My nephew sent a letter back saying he was greatful for the recognition, and declined the offer of the guitar. I'll talk about musicfest on another day, as I'm kinda beat right now. I am a fragment of my imagination #endquote#
