You may be right and I may be wrong. Judging from people on the Martin forum, someone who's going to invest a large sum in a Martin clone will be expecting all the traditional Martin touches. (Or at least what are considered the "traditional" touches.)

And we agree, not all those "touches" are necessary to achieving a legendary guitar. I'm a huge fan of bolt-on necks.
