Very Good Guitar at a Very Good price

By Brian

from Grand Junction, CO

Comments about Martin DXM Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar based on two things: Martin's reputation, and the reviews shared here (and also for the DX1, which I take to be the same guitar, but with a spruce top). The tone and volume are wonderful (and I have yet to lay a pick to the strings!), there are standard fret markings on the side of the fretboard, so you shouldn't worry about getting lost (unless you use a right-hand guitar for left-hand playing). But what I remembered about the Martin that I strummed once 30 years ago was the action, and this guitar has that same, wonderful, easy-to-finger action that I remembered so well. It may not be the $400 Martin of 1979, but I am overall pleased with this purchase, and have fulfilled one dream that's been with me that long.

Absolutely a dream and I am in LOVE...!!

By Lou

from Phoenix AZ

Comments about Martin DXM Acoustic Guitar:

Yes.. Love is the best way to describe this guitar.. I tried out this and a Baby Taylor.. no comparison but the BT was lighter, alot lighter. The sound from this guitar literally is breathtaking from something pretty tiny, the range and sustain of tones is a must hear to be appreciated. This has been one of those times where product far exceeded what I gave for purchase, the guitar is delight to ear, heart and soul. I am literally in LOVE with my DXM..!

Great Guitar

By Jonathan K

from Bellevue, WA

Comments about Martin DXM Acoustic Guitar:

I finally upgraded my guitar I got 4 years ago for about $150 and this has been a great upgrade. You're definitely getting what you pay for. The sound is significantly better and the action is very nice for an acoustic.

Great Guitar for the Price

By Ernie

from Baltimore

Comments about Martin DXM Acoustic Guitar:

I bought this guitar about 6 months ago to replace a 1970's Fender my father gave to me. This guitar was a great buy. It had better sound quality than the Taylor for the same price and the neck was not bolted down to the Guitar like it was on the Taylor. I looked as some Epiphones and Fenders as well and decided on this guitar. The only problem with the guitar is the neck is sometimes difficult to move quickly on due to the natural finish. Sometimes I forget where I am on the fretboard too because there are no inlays on the frets.

great guitar

By paulshizzle

from VA

Comments about Martin DXM Acoustic Guitar:

great tone, and terrific feel. produces a very smooth elegant sound and even when strumming, each string is clearly articulated. The only downside is that this guitar isnt a plug-in which means if you want this to be an electric guitar, youre going to have to install pickups yourself. But a very good guitar with a great sound for a very affordable price.
