             and re-discovered instruments - now in excess of 4200.  A MUST HAVE for

                                                Before  After ..... 
                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

           DON'T SCROLL DOWN -    Feelings below

  Political sentiments
Turn back before it's too late!
