    Comments about Martin X Series 2015 Custom Sapele LX Acoustic Guitar:

    The guitar comes with a very nice Martin gig bag. It was easy to play right out of the box after tuning. The wood smells so good. I was hurting my shoulder playing a full sized guitar. This is easier for me to play. I love it.

    Comments about Martin X Series 2015 Custom Sapele LX Acoustic Guitar:

    Great guitar with a great sound. Extremely well built, much richer sound than the standard lx1 or the baby Taylor. The body size makes it extremely easy to hold and play, especially for a beginner. It sounds similar to the GS Mini, but has a better body shape. I would highly recommend this over the standard lx1/baby Taylor or similar offerings from Ibanez and Cordoba. It's worth the small premium to get the sepele top.

      Comments about Martin X Series 2015 Custom Sapele LX Acoustic Guitar:

      A few years ago I bought one of these Mexican made Martin's and was amazed on how well it sounds. However, after 10 months the frets were shot. Guitar Center tried to resurface the frets but that didn't help. Guitar Center and Martin didn't want to know anything. Guitar Center suggest I not use a such a death grip on the neck.

      In 40 years of playing guitar, never have I worn out frets in 10 months. This will most likely be my last Martin because Martin has failed to take care of the soft fret issue. As for Guitar Center, they also let me down by not resolving the issue. My advice for those looking for a quality acoustic is save your money and buy a Taylor. In fact, tell Guitar Center that you will not tolerate such poor customer service.

        Comments about Martin X Series 2015 Custom Sapele LX Acoustic Guitar:

        I love it! Good price comparing it to a 0-15 since they bit have almost identical body types. I wanted flamenco style nothing else and I'm happy with the more affordable expense! Smells good too so play nice and great fragrance for the ultimate effeciency in nothingness :-) love this guitar sold all my acoustics after awhile of owning this one

            Comments about Martin X Series 2015 Custom Sapele LX Acoustic Guitar:

            I couldn't have any other body type for a Sapele top I wanted something flamenco guitar looking. But I also couldn't afford the Martin 0-15 so I opted for this more affordable one. It's definitely a Little Martin I questioned if it was full size or not because of the scale length of the guitar but it's a 3/4 for sure. Great sound in guitar plays better than my Fender acoustic (no model names here) and has a bigger neck than it as well! Smells delicious all I use it for is to play guitar in closed environments so I can engulf the fumes of the wood. If you're looking for an upgrade but not trying to spend over 600$ on this brands full size, go with this because I did so and I'm not planning on picking up a full size ever again.
