    Hey guys, just wondering if it is worth keeping the original parts of my vintage Martin committee. I was going to take it in for a basic springs, felts,corks tune up thinking it's due after 50+ years, and having a few issues. Do you feel keeping these original consumable parts will add to its value, or should I trash them? Thanks

    You could maybe create some decorative wall art with them. Keeps it out of the landfill and all that.

    I wouldn't trash anything Committee just because it's Committee. There are plenty of neurotics out there that just want stuff like that.
