Plays better then any guitar in this price range

By Tim Kuhl

from Shirley, NY

Comments about Martin D-1GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar as soon as I heard it... I originally went into the store with a 500 dollar budget.. looking for a decent guitar for strumming in the living room, campouts, back yard events, and so on... a good sounding take anyware guitar... well I looked at washburns, epiphones, an inexpensive taylor, and they all seem ok... then the sales rep came over and said I have the guitar for you but is a little more then your budget... I said cant hert to try it... he handed me the martin d1gt and the tone was fantastic, you could not beat the booming bass and bright highs from a guitar for this price... the neck is unfinished and so smooth and easy to play... the only thing was the action was alittle high for me.. i like low actions... but the quitar is setup at the factory for a one size fits all ... needless to say i walked out with the martin and made a trip to my luthier (martin certified)had him do a setup and lower my action and 60 dollars later the new marting became the guitar I was looking for ... Perfect sound... perfect action... just smooth in all aspects.... So if you are looking for a perfect take around quitar and have the extra cash, you want good sound when your playing and want that extra sweet look in your friends eys when you pull out a real martin instead of an epiphone then this is the guitar you need... two of my friend are looking at them now after I let them play mine.... SWEET....

My 1st Martin

By jess esquivel

from Pasadena Ca

Comments about Martin D-1GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I am so pleased with my D-1GT. I have thinking about a new guitar for a about a year. I finally decided it was time.. I have owned an Epiphone and a Ibenez which I thought were great. Then I played the Martin D-1GT.. I just love the sound from the Martin,it's so clean and crisp it sings. That's the only way I can describe it. I'm very happy.. For me the price was right.. Great people at the Guitar Center in Pasadena Ca..

A Martin for the working man

By Huey Haymon

from Duncan SC

Comments about Martin D-1GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I went to the Guitar Center store in Glen Burnie, Md., to shop for Tay...I mean...a certain brand of guitar. I really like that certain brand of guitar, but I was especially impressed by the Martin D-1GT. I looked at the price tag and wondered if there was something wrong or cheap about this model. Sapele wood. I didn't know what sapele wood was. I thought maybe it was some cheap wood that allowed them to price this thing so low. I asked. A helpful employee named Mick told me that it was just nearly the same as mahogany. The other brand had a sapele/spruce guitar for about the same price. There was no comparison. The D-1GT was LOUDER and CLEARER. No muddiness. Outstanding sustain for an acoustic. It is lower priced because you don't get fancy binding. Just a best-in-class performance- quality acoustic guitar.

Wow!! I was blown away!!

By Holly Saunders

from Fiddletown, CA

Comments about Martin D-1GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

Wow!! I was blown away by this guitar!! I have no doubt that after a few years of mellowing this guitar will sound as good as my 1972 D-18. What a great instrument to travel with. The best part!!...It was in playable and IN TUNE, right from the box. Awesome!!

Amazing! A Martin Worth Every Penny

By Brian Hoffman

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Martin D-1GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I am a guitar player for about 9 years now and play an Epiphone, and my dad plays a Martin D-28 and one day we went in to guitar center to preview what guitar I will be getting and we looked at a D-15, a couple of Taylors, and a few others, and then we went back into the room and i saw this one and started playing it, and i immediately knew, this is the one, the price was within my range and was the best by far, the bass punches you in the face, and your pulled right back by the treble, and it has a certain vibrato sound to it, not much but enough to make the sound pop.

Amazing Sound Quality

By Jeff Davich

from Lake Stevens - WA

Comments about Martin D-1GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I am not an experienced guitar player like many of you that have written reviews. At age 51, I decided that it was too long that everyone in my family plays, but me. When I began taking lessons on an old honor acoustic (Classical) I very soon realized that I needed a real guitar. I had about $650.00 I thought I was going to get away with finding a decent 'starter' guitar. I walked into the guitar center and they left me alone in that beautiful acoustic all wood room. (They know what they are doing!) - The first guitar I picked up was the Martin D1-GT Dreadnought and the strings sang for at least 30 seconds after hitting one or many. I never put it down and bought it no questions asked. Now, 9 mos. later, I can play a few songs and am diligent in my lessons and practicing. I LOVE THIS GUITAR... The sound makes even a plucker like me, sound so great. The neck and all of the wood for that matter, looks very classy and is exactly what I needed. Thank you Guitar Center & MARTIN

Martin D-1GT

By steven silverman

from tarzana, california

Comments about Martin D-1GT Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I always wanted a martin guitar. I am not much of a player mostly bluse and rock. But a do know what guitars are supposed sound like. This guitar took 3 weeks 3 different guitar centers and 25 other martins. Before I purchased this one. The only word to describe this amazing guitar is balls.... This guitar has balls. The natural deep base crisp high tones. The sound jumps out of the box. Martin made others that day. I feel, I had the pick of the litter. For the price you definately get your money's worth.
