Comments about Martin 17 Series 000-17 Auditorium Acoustic Guitar:
This is a spit review-once the guitar was properly set up, it became everything Martin says it is. I love playing it, the sound is magnificent, and it responds equally well to standard and open tunings. The problem came with the initial delivery of the guitar-the action was horrifyingly high-it measured a full quarter inch high on the bottom E string at the 12th fret. It was virtually unplayable, so on top of the cost of the guitar, I had to shell out another fifty to make it playable. I have a great set up guy at my local GC, but he shouldn't have had to have done this. So Martin, hear this: great guitar, lousy set up. Plecked? I think not.
