Liked the guitar alot but . . .

Comments about Martin Special Edition 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I Liked the guitar alot, but I'm confused as to what Martin's philosophy was here. I still love Martins, I have four vintage ones (40s 50s 60s and 70s) if I include the uke I have. (disclaimer - I have been playing a loooooong time) I loved the guitar. I thought the sound both plugged and unplugged was great, (given I wasn't spending $5K or more!) However the tension on the strings was just distracting giving it an almost steel string feel due to the 26.44 scale neck! Apparently with that Martin is trying to make this feel like a steel string. Anybody aware of any standard guitars either steel string or nylon string with this scale length? Isn't that almost a baritone length? That's over 671 mm! Even a long scale classical is only 650! I just don't know what the thought was here. Can anyone enlighten me? Is Martin trying to carve out a new and unique nylon string nice? I could tune the guitar down a half step and put a capo on the first fret I guess but too much effort just to be able to enjoy the long scale once in a while. Obviously the guitar has real nice strong bass response. (which I lie BTW)Odd bracing too. "hybrid x" I think they call it. Not the standard fan bracing seen in flamenco and classical guitars. Obviously aiming at the crossover market but where is not clear to me. In summary I loved the guitar and really wanted to keep it to be part of my Martin collection but couldn't live with the oddness of it. I could have been talked into keeping it very easily, (probably should have called Martin) but the nice folks at Guitar Center swapped it out for a Cordoba similarly priced no problem and now I'm happy. Thank You Guitar Center.

Very positive

Comments about Martin Special Edition 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been playing for 35 years and enjoy finger picking and strumming with backs of fingernails. This guitar is great for both. It has great sound and I have not (and may not) use the electronics. Intonation is perfect. The D string buzzes when I press away from the fret + play loud. I will wait to make buzz adjustments after the guitar gets used to the climate here and after I replace the factory strings with my favorite nylon strings, the D'Addario EJ 45 LP. I love this guitar. It is easier for my old fingers for finger picking and has good volume balance when I switch from finger picking to strumming in sequence for the same song.

Poor stringing

By Dan Coate

from Pompano Beach, FL

Comments about Martin Special Edition 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Nice guitar and all. However the high E string will not stay in tune. I've had it a month and played it a handful of times and opened the case to find the D string broken. It seems to be structurally sound and the tuning machines fine, just poor stringing and cheap strings. Not what I'd expect for a Martin.

Martin 000C Nylon

By Thomas Cotney

from Abilene, TX

Comments about Martin Special Edition 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is an awesome guitar. It plays effortlessly and has that Martin just feels right neck. I really prefer the thinner neck design. The built in Fishman electronics has the best acoustic sound with the least feedback I've ever experienced on a nylon string. The sustain is incredible. If you're a finger picker, you've got to give this guitar a test drive. As I get older (recently turned 60y/o), I find myself playing nylon more and more. And right now this is one of my favorites.

Amazing

By ritchie ley _

Comments about Martin Special Edition 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have been playing for 34 years..This guitar is by far the best nylon I have ever played,i have been looking to replace my old nylon for a while but couldn't find one that was way better than what i was playing ,godin was close but i didn't like the slim body and that you had to plug in to play so I like the fact that this guitar is less than 4 LBS it is so light,like the other martin ooo steel strings,the neck is nice not to fat and not to wide ,but not so small that you lose the classical feel(like the Godins) ..The fishman pickup systems is amazing sound wise you can scope the mid,chane the phase or play straight and has a tuner built in.I sounds amazing without plugging in and even more amazing plugged in..this is a keeper
