    Comments about Martin 17 Series D-17M Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I originally bought the D15M which is a great guitar. I saw some reviews on the D17M, and I wanted the spruce top. I returned the D15M to Guitar Center and asked them to order me a D17M. I was NOT sorry. This is the most awesome guitar I've ever played. I previously owned a Martin D35 and a Martin HD28V. I had never played a mahogany guitar. The rosewood back and sides are nice but sound stiff to me compared to the mahogany. I'm keeping this Martin forever.

    High Quality / Legendary Name

    Comments about Martin 17 Series D-17M Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

    I can't say enough about the high quality of this guitar. It is built so well, every component and detail of this guitar says that it was built by a master craftsman. The sound is sharp and clear as it is with all high end Martins. I love the simple unadorned look of this guitar. I am a simple man and it suits my personality perfectly. Thank you Martin for an instrument that I'm sure I will cherish for years to come.
