    As reviewed by Steven on 5/12/2015

    This is the first Martin I have owned and I am pleased. It has a great sound. You get what you pay for when buying a guitar and this was a very nice buy. I went to a bunch of music stores to try guitars out but nobody had Martin's so I tried a few Taylor's, Takamine, and a few others like Yamaha so I didn't know how the guitar was going to feel or sound when I ordered it. I was a little concerned about the neck width when it showed up from UPS, but after playing it for a while, all doubts I had about it quickly disappeared. I love it now. The built in tuner is ok, I don't really use it since I have a clip-on that I think is more accurate. I don't play with an amp so I have never used the electronics so I really can't give you an opinion on those. I am not disappointed in my purchase and wouldn't hesitate to buy again if I had to again. Love the looks of it too.
