	Thanks for the message. I got another reply off-list that
recommended the Fishman preamp. From what I gather on this, it doesn't have
an EQ, per se, but has a notch filter and is preset to EQ an acoustic
guitar. Is this the same gear you mention? Since I am using a Fishman
pic-up, this might be a good addition.

	As for playing my Martin, if you are anywhere I am, I will likely
have my guitar with me and you are welcome to take it for a ride!

Fraternally yours,

Hi. Wow I would love to play that Martin!

Check out the fishman aura preamp pedals... They give you eq, compression,
reverb I believe, and can help with a weak pickup signal as they can inject
some modeled acoustic body imaging into your signal. They really do a great

the tc helican voice live acoustic gives you much the same in pedal form but
also gives you a second channel with eq, compression, and effects etc for

And, if you ever want to upgrade the pickup in your martin, there are
amazing options now that do not require drilling etc like the old barn door
style systems... I can give you more info on that later if you wish.

Let us know what you end up checking out!

Also, if you're interested in something with on board amplification and a
USb recording interface, I'm selling my excellent fender Acoustisonic 150w
stereo solo pa and acoustic amp. It's very lite and you can carry it in one
hand! It has two on board speakers, headphone jack, line out for recording
or to feed a pa mixer etc, USB recording output, two channels, digital
effects, chorus, reverb, delay, vibrato etc, acoustic guitar images to
enhance your guitar sound if you wish, two eqs, phantom power, and even has
some electric guitar amp models built in too if you're also an electric
player. If you'd like more info on that, shoot me a message off list...
