: I am trying to find some information on an electric guitar (solid body) that Martin made in the mid to late 70's (I believe). I can't seem to find any info on the web and don't currently have the guitar available to get a model number. I would like to find out its worth and maybe a little history on why C.F. Martin ever even made an electric. Any help would be appreciated.

: Thanks,

Re: Sigma Martin Electric Guitar

I have a blonde Gibson SG copy Sigma purchased in 1975. The finish is still excellent. The only changes made to the guitar are pick-ups and the tuners. It plays great and has a warm sound. It weighs more than the SG though.

Hi. I have an Sigma Stratocaster-copy that I bought in Sweden(where I live) in 1976. It has a maple-neck an was white before I striped the paint. The paint was real bad,I peeled it of like a hard-boiled egg. Now its beautiful natural ash-finish.

I have one of those - double cutaway Sigma guitars and am trying to find out info myself. I contacted Martin and they told me they don't keep records back that far. Dumb!

Does it look like a SG with 2 humbuckers
