  • Love the sound!

    As reviewed by karen on 6/11/2012

    I was not looking for a Martin or a dread but I was looking for a great feeling neck and a deep, projecting bass. When the sales person at GC put this Martin in my hands I was immediately taken by the sound. The bass notes rang easily but didn't overwhelm. The strummed sound was full and rich. The fingerboard and neck feel so natural...just right for me. This guitar has a satin finish and I am not crazy about satin finishes but...it is really growing on me. The guitar is beautifully made...no flaws I can find yet anyway. The Fishman pre amp does not have EQ...it is volume and bass/treble. As I rarely use it that is fine for me. I might upgrade to another Fishman at some point but not yet. Anyway, I am falling for this guitar more and more as I play it. It is light, comfortable and I just love the sound. It comes with a great hard case with a soft plush lining. All in all...I think it is a great ax!

  • Great guitar!

    As reviewed by Ashish Dhal on 8/13/2012

    I love this guitar, I tried a couple of other Martins under a grand, but this definitely stood out. To move along the neck is very smooth. It has a very rich sound. I have had no issues with it quality wise, although I have owned it for 4 months or so. Looks really great and plays better.

  • Excellent value, beautiful guitar

    As reviewed by CYNTHIA FOX on 1/22/2014

    I got this guitar on sale for about $880 with tax. It's SO beautiful.... The notes ring out and the sound keeps getting better and better as the wood starts to "loosen up". I started learning on a very cheap laminate Epiphone acoustic and there's a huge difference in sound and quality when you step up to a Martin. Especially with regards to the low action. I love that the pickup/dials are hidden inside the guitar, easily accessible. It looks like an acoustic guitar and you can't tell that it's also electric. I don't like A/E's cuz they usually have the tuner and dials on the body and I think it ruins the look. (this guitar sounds amazing through an amp by the way!) It comes with a super high quality case and you have to take very good care of this instrument. Don't leave it out and let it get dried out or it will get damaged. I always keep mine in the case. This is a very high end entry level all wood guitar. I'm completely sold on Martin Guitars and can't wait to purchase a 28 or 45. The build quality is excellent and it's a guitar you can feel really proud of owning. It will get you into a "Pro" state of mind with your playing...
