    Comments about Martin Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Electric Guitar:

    I bought this guitar at a local GC. I was looking for a guitar that I could strap to my back while riding a motorcycle. Maybe something inexpensive made with plastic... like a used Applause. Well, no used Applauses were available but this little jewel was. I was instantly intrigued by how comfortable it was to play and its fine tone. I told myself it was out of my price range and too fragile... then walked away. The next day I was back and when the GC opened I made my offer. The manager was a class act and made it happen. I've played this guitar at several gigs now and it continues to grow on me. Its become my most favorite guitar ever. Finger picking with all metal picks, thumb included, really makes this Martin sing. Now I don't think I could own any other brand or model. Its just that good.

      Comments about Martin Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Electric Guitar:

      Bought this fantastic Martin Dreadnought Junior E for my wife as a birthday present along with a Fishman small amp to play through. We have only played it at home so far but it feels and sounds great even though neither of us are great players at all. It makes a nice pairing with my HD28v.

        Comments about Martin Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Electric Guitar:

        Hard to believe the tone and bass sounds in a small travel guitar ,that the Jr delivers !!! Sounds like a full size dread. All wood and a great acoustic pickup by Fishman. Gig Bag included ,also Martin does make a hard case, but is expensive. This little guitar thinks it is a large dreadnought and sounds better than a lot of more expensive larger guitars and brand names on the market.Absolutely BLOWS AWAY the Taylor GS Minis. Has the Martin Tone through and through.Larger than most travel size guitars, but still small and in the travel class.Will hold it own with most dreads, Not as full sounding as a regular Martin dread,but not that far off. Perfect for recording and very stage ready. Martin has done a tremendous job on this one and it is made in MEXICO, hard to digest, but REAL .

            Comments about Martin Dreadnought Junior Acoustic Electric Guitar:

            I wanted a travel sized guitar that didn't sound wimpy. I've got a Felix Little Martin, and a Baby Taylor. They're both great guitars for what they are, but they have obvious limitations. Let's face it. This guitar is small enough to easily travel with, but also big enough to not wish I had brought one of the big boys. All solid woods, 1 3/4 nut width (which I can't seem to do without anymore), great construction, stays in tune, and awesome tone for what it is. The built in pickup is an added plus. Sounds great plugged in. Great for playin' on the couch or out by the campfire. No worries about ruining your beautiful lacquer finish either. If you're smaller in size, or not quite ready for a full size guitar, check out the Martin D-Jr. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I sure was.

            As a worship leader, I was a 614 Taylor man since 2006. Always wanted a 3/4 size acoustic -- thanks Ed Sheeran. Just purchased the Martin Dread Jr over the Taylor Junior because of the amazing tone that I heard in the store - gotta love those acoustic rooms! The price of the Martin was a little better too! Looking forward to playing my Jr more and more. Can't wait to worship with it live!
