  • Amazing Sound

    As reviewed by Josh Storch on 11/22/2010

    I went to guitar center determined to fall in love with a guitar. After trying out different brands such as Takamines, Fenders, Taylors, I decided to pick up this Martin. Once I started playing it I just could not pick up any other guitar I knew this was the one. An amazing sound which you can here every string perfectly and it has a very pretty design. All I can say is this guitar is amazing.

  • Quality Control Issues at Martin

    As reviewed by David Canady on 12/10/2012

    GC only had the display so I had to have one shipped to me. The neck was so bad on the first one I received the luthier wouldn?t touch it. The second was better, but after looking it over and discussing what I expected from the action, we (the luthier and I) elected to pass on the second guitar as well. He called it a whale tail. It humped at the 14th fret. The neck on the third guitar was perfect and we were able to get a very nice setup. One odd thing about Martin is they setup guitars with the strings about ?? off the neck at the 12, almost unplayable. I don?t know if this is only with the OM or with all Martin guitars. Just know you will need to have your guitar worked on before really enjoying it. The wood is gorgeous. The tone is powerful and balanced. Note, the neck is wider than on most steal string guitars. It really is designed for finger picking. The electronics are easy to use and have way more options than almost any other acoustic electric I?ve owned or used. The Roland system does eat batteries. I only get 2 gigs out of a set but I?m happy to put up with that for what it offers. You can save up to 3 EQ settings. I have one for flat picking, one for finger picking, and one with the low end rolled off a little for when I play hard. It also offers reverb. FYI, it took 3 e-mails to Martin before they responded. I think it was also because I cc?d their marketing department as well. I am very unimpressed with Martin?s quality control and their customer service. So, if you get a good one, you are going to love this guitar but be prepared to have to deal with poor quality control from Martin. The 3 stars are for Martin, not the guitar. My 3rd guitar is a 5.

  • First Electric Acoustic

    As reviewed by Mark Liesen on 4/5/2012

    I don't like it when reviewers drop names, but here it explains why I enjoy playing this guitar so much. I was looking to fill a space in my "tool bag".At the time of this purchase about a year ago, I had a 1974 Gibson Dove( I bought new and hitched the country with in my Hippie coffee house days.) I had a Gibson Les Paul Traditional Standard Plus (from GC I love), a Gibson Tennessean (from Mars music I got a great price on the week they went out of business)and my first Martin (an MIA/POW special edition). So I had 2 electrics 1 solid body, 1 semi solid body and 2 acoustics. I wanted an acoustic electric but couldn't bear the thought of holes being drilled in either guitar. I scraped together a grand and went to GC. I played a lot of acoustic electrics, but not this one, I like dreadnoughts. I really liked the Breedlove Atlas Stage Series D25/SR Dreadnought Acoustic and had a $100 off coupon so I bought it. I kept it a couple of weeks and really liked it but kept getting a buzzing from the G string. I took it in to have it set up and played the dread version of this Martin. It finally convinced me to part with the Breedlove and toss in the extra $, but I noticed a sizable dent on the front since the last time I was there. I asked if they had another one in the back and the salesperson went to check. In the mean time while I was waiting I picked up this orchestra Martin and it immediately bonded with my fingers and I couldn't stop playing it. The salesman returned empty handed but I didn't care. I found the guitar that now gets played nearly exclusively. My other guitars all have their place, but the guitar I just wanted to fill out my line up is now my favorite guitar. I love the Roland system and don't understand why Martin went to anything else. The size is awesome. Even though I'm a big guy and have played dreads my whole life (been playing for 45 years) the neck is great, I love the 3 piece back. I almost bought a D35 because of the back. This guitar would be perfect except for 2 negatives. 1 I wish it was gloss instead of satin. 2.It eats the 2 little AA batteries like potato chips if you forget to unplug the cord from the guitar when you are not playing. to sum it all whatever you can to scrape together the $ to get this guitar. The newer performing artist series are great, but the Roland kicks their a$$!
