Amazing tres!

Comments about Martin LXM Tres:

I bought my Martin Tres less than a year ago. I was considering some other options online that go for about $200. This was a little more expensive tres but Martin's legendary quality and brand positioning made me choose it. I am completely pleased! Although this seems like an adaptation of Martin's little guitar for children (it actually came with a "how to take care of my little Martin" brochure) the sound it produces, once properly tuned, is purely Cuban. I have been playing montunos and been completely amazed. It comes with a nice gig bag, I make it a point to bag it as soon as I am done to preserve the nice wooden smell. Most important on this guitar are Martin's brand (they can go in the tens of thousands), solid construction, ease of playing construction. If you are an experienced tresero you won't be disappointed...If you are a beginner this is an excellent investment but beware there are no instructions on even how to string and tune it.
