First Guitar-Glad a spent a little more

By El N.

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about Martin SWDGT Sustainable Wood Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I purchased the '000' version of the Martin SWDGT. I have a smaller body that was not comfortable on the full sized dreadnought. For my first guitar I want quality and was willing to spend a little more for a solid wood product. The guitar has a wonderful sound. Bright and clear. I lean towards rock and blues music. Even my teacher has commented on how much he likes the sound and he plays a D-28.

Very worth it

By Josh

from Sparta,TN

Comments about Martin SWDGT Sustainable Wood Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I have owned this guitar for almost a year now and I'll tell you I never get tired of playing this one. I have the Dreadnought version. This guitar has great sound and tone. I have played other good guitars and so far nothing beats this one. It meets my demands on sound, playability, and looks. A lot of my friends are musicians and they play this guitar then they ask "when will you sell it to me". Take it from me this is a GREAT guitar.

The best deal on a Martin!

By Bugman98

from Stillwater, OK

Comments about Martin SWDGT Sustainable Wood Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I wanted to get a great sounding guitar that was near the $1000 range. I played D-16's and D-18's and I thought this sounded better and was less money. It is really a nice looking guitar with tortise shell inlay in several places. Granted, it would be nice if the sides were glossy too but this guitar sounds so good it wont matter! I just strum one chord and giggle like a school boy!

Good instrument for the price

By Cliff Carmack

from Bristol, Tn.

Comments about Martin SWDGT Sustainable Wood Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

I have owned my SWDGT for 6 years. Now the guitar is really taking on a beautiful tone. I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 because it is what I consider a mid-range quailty instrument. I have put it with D-28's and can tell you that the D-28 sounded better. (keep in mind the price of both) If you are looking for an instrument in this price range, then this would be one of the good choices you could make. There are other brands also in this price range that compare to quality and sound. I am very happy with mine and because it is not a top of the line guitar, it does not bother me as bad to take it around and let other people play it who are just learning. I put a Martin pickup in mine.

Hidden Gem

By Jason

Comments about Martin SWDGT Sustainable Wood Series Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

Anyone wanting a Martin should HIGHLY consider this one before dropping more on a standard series model. The sound is 100% top-notch Martin, with nothing missing at all. Beautiful, loud, rich, complex and hard to put down. They use less bracing (A-frame) on this one than most of the standard series, making this thing a true cannon. Can easily hang w/ a D-28 or most other Martins; even their D-45s and vintage toned IMO, but here the notes are quite a bit more clear and well-separated than those rosewood ones, but w/ the same rich humming bass and choral overtones. Equally pleasing to the eye as any D-28 too; just right for me; understated w/out being too plain or too fancy. Love the faux-tortise appointments. Fretboard and neck play great; Katalox is totally sweet as a fingerboard wood. Smooth as butter. (BTW black ebony is a useless waste: 20 trees cut to find one that's all black. Tragic.) Flat-out perfect win in every way: price, looks, sound. No tone lost for less money paid. Guitars the way they should be. Way to go again, Martin.
