Get it now. You will have no regrets.

By Captive Socks

from Florida

There are only about 850 of these that have been made since the first in 2006. Martin retired the guitar this past year (2013). The top end materials are getting more expensive. It is unlikely that you'll find a guitar like this at this price point in the future. Now then there is the sound of this little creation. Bold and clear, it is not the sweet voice of the inexperienced, protected child. It is the voice of the man/woman of the world. It can be joyous or can lament, it can laugh and cry. Always there is more it is ready to give even in the hands of an inexperienced player. Go listen to YouTube sound clips, but know that unlike so many guitars that you hear on sound clips, with this one there is ever so much more to this guitar. Unless you absolutely KNOW you will never play a mod-v neck, don't get put off by the neck. This is a comfortable instrument that doesn't ever fight you. If it is still available, then get it for yourself now. It is an instrument that you will want to eventually hand down to others in your family - a real treasure at a significant, but perhaps affordable price.
