    Comments about Martin Special Edition DC-Aura GT Cutaway Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    The best acoustic I ever owned prior to this guitar (my first Martin) was pre-Fender Guild D-55. Loved it, but wanted A) cutaway for better playability, B) built-in electronics. The D55 had a very sweet tone, was loud with tons of bottom, but I found myself loving the brighter with better mid-range tone of the DC Aura for it's versatility. After playing a Taylor 810ce, Gibson Hummingbird Pro cutaway, and the DC Aura at Guitar Center, I made my decision. I REALLY wanted to love the Gibson, because of its looks (3 color burst was beautiful like my D55) but Sadly, I did not. Of the 3, the Gibson was the least playable by a wide margin. Was like dating a dull-witted model with no energy.....gorgeous, but really boring. The Taylor was also a disappointment, but not because it didn't sound great or play well.... simply because I expected so much more for the price. The DC Aura just fit my hand perfectly, was set up to perfection withe lowest,easiest action, seemed extremely easy to tune with the new "skeleton" tuning keys. Nice touch. Plugged in, I thought the Taylor sound was the equal or better, but that is really subjective and amp-dependent. After a month now, I only love this guitar more.
