Re: Marlin guitars


Martin has a huge history.
One of the oldest companies in America, they opened in the 1800's in New York and shortly moved to Nazareth, PA. Many patents.
The pre-WWII D-series guitars fetch over $100,000.00 regularly.
Go to the Marin website to catch up on them...

Re: Marlin guitars


For some reason I don't think he's talking about Martin.

Although a OFR on a 000 would be a funny sight.

Re: Marlin guitars


Marlin guitars were available in the late 80's in the UK. They were budget 'Cheapo' copies. They had a few models: Slammer (Strat copy), 'Sidewinder' and 'Loner' (like Super Strats, albeit with sub-standard hardware). I had a red Marlin 'Blue Fin' (RR type copy) in '87, the pick ups squealed like crazy. All models generally sold for around £99 back in the day.

Hope this helps.

Re: Marlin guitars


OK, I'm really sorry to bump this but I was just doing a web search on Marlin and I thought it was hilarious how Jemaholic tried to pass off his misunderstanding as a joke!

Here's to those who owned a Marlin. I seriously hope you managed to get rid of the damn thing in the end.

Re: Marlin guitars


LOL! Good move, Andy.

Jaden, I threw it out of the window in 1984. You're 24 years late. Hey, I'd gotten a Squier, so it was all good.

Exorcism didn't work - it opened a rift into Hell under my bed where i used to store it!!

The room is locked now and my parents blame me for being unable to sell the house LOL
