Amazing Vintage Guitars available
Great craftsmen – vintage guitars were made (if they are old enough) by luthiers who understood some of the principles of voicing and tuning. Martin for example ceased individually voicing their guitars in the 1940’s and 50’s. It is not a coincidence that pre-war Martins and those Vintage Martin guitars from the first years after are coveted for their tone, and Martin is still trading on the reputation from those golden years.
Use and aging – When guitars have been played and cared for and when they additionally age in a natural way, this has an enormous influence on the sound quality.
… what do you prefer a Vintage guitar from Martin or one from Gibson?
These Guitars are as different as they can be and both have their advantages – the Vintage guitar fans are often divided. Some strictly prefer Martin guitars others are just fascinated by the roaring Gibson sound and would prefer it over all.
