One year warranty on Martin Backpackers, Little Martins and Ukuleles. Limited lifetime on other Martin guitars.
This is a excellent guitar very similar to a Martin D-18 Golden Era but made with certified woods. Katalox 1 3/4" fingerboard is comfortable and feels very similar to rosewood. European spruce top sounds similar to Engleman to me but has effortless volume like Adirondack spruce but without the harshness to the tone that Adirondack sometimes has. Excellent for Rhythm playing and picking.
