Great-sounding headturner

By 

from Morgantown WV

Comments about Martin Alternative X Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar looks and sounds amazing, and proves that spruce and rosewood are not the only materials that can make a good guitar. The guitar has excellent action, and was even in tune when I pulled it out of the box. Unplugged, it sounds like a high-quality wooden guitar - no harsh metallic sounds whatsoever. I have not plugged it into an amp so I don't know what that sounds like, but I'd imagine it would still sound awesome. The guitar has a nice thin body, which is good for short people with short arms, such as myself. It's not quite as loud as a big dreadnaught but it still has good volume. This does not look like a traditional bluegrass instrument at all, but that's mostly what I play, and it lends itself very well to lots of fast flatpicking. I have been wanting a Martin guitar for years, and after much research decided to purchase this one. I have not been disappointed in the least. A bonus of this particular model is that EVERYbody will be staring at your guitar in envy and telling you how awesome/cool/beautiful it is. And they'll be right. ;) HIGHLY recommend this guitar!

Best Guitar I have ever owned

By 

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Martin Alternative X Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have owned many brands of guitar over my 25 year history of playing. Gibson, Fender, Takamine, Ibanez, Taylor. All have been replaced by this shiny little guitar. With the look, style, and sound for the big stage or just rocking around the house, you cannot beat it.
