A friend of mine showed me this site

http://www.zagerguitar.com

This guy apparently takes the basic martin guitars "templates" from the shop that produces them and customizes them for easier play. They also run about 50% less than a Martin. Has anyone bought or tried these guitars and have an opinion on them? I was contemplating getting a Martin or Taylor but if this turns out to play about the same I may go this route.

If someone already posted a review about this guitar can you send the link, since there is no search functionality at the moment. I posted in a different forum and didn't get much response.

Very interesting to find out that he was 50% of Zager & Evans in 2525 (oops sorry 1969)

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

Theyre not real martins. They're martin sigma's. Kinda like Squier is to Fender or Epi is to Gibson.

And what has he done since? NOTHING! 8) 8) 8)

I was just curious if anyone tried them. I'm on the fence of paying $600 for a guitar that "may" be ok, or just shell out a little more and get something that I know is good quality, like a Taylor or a Martin. They do provide a guarentee, which includes paying for shipping.

The other thing is I have issues with my hand cramping up and dying in the middle of a set. I know, it's probably is technique and just lack of practice, but I thought that this may help.

The ad in his website seems deceptive to me. That's would be enough to keep me from buying one.

I dunno, I think I smell BS. The guy says they're the greastest things in the world, but I know that its really just a fancy setup.... :? I dunno, maybe thats just me....
