    Style of Music: no crap, hip hop or polkas, anything else goes!

    Experience: Pickin' and grinnin' at least an hour a day

    "Great camping axe"

    Sound:
    A bit high pitched, to be expected with a small body guitar. Good action, needed lighter strings out of the box for a better feel and sound. Fits in my VW bus, is rugged, very portable, a tad neck heavy, again due to the way it's made
    Feature:
    Came with gig bag and I talked the guitar place out of a couple steds of strings and some Dunlop extra light picks.
    The Wow Factor:
    I camp with a lot of folks who are musically inclined but are reluctant to bring their "good" guitars because of the vagarities of North Casolina winters.
    Overall:
    This one's a keeper. I "El Kabonged" my last camping guitar!

    "There are better alternatives for less money!"

    This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.

    Sound:
    I had one of these, returned it and bought a Washburn Rover. The Rover is cheaper and sounds much better. The Martin plays well, but the sound is weak even for a travel guitar (don't expect full-sized sound from any of them).
    Feature:
    Gig bag is ok, but won't protect when tossed in with other luggage. Limited fretboard.
    Quality:
    Seemes solid and well built, but not up to par with the workmanship and finish of a regular guitar. That may be ok for backpacking, but there are other alternatives in travel guitars that are much better.
    Value:
    More expensive than alternatives, and not as good.
    The Wow Factor:
    I returned it. What more can I say.
    Overall:
    After purchasing this, I was not satisfied, returned it, and looked at a number of alternative. I ended up with the Washburn Rover which has a very nice sound for the size, is built and finished like a real guitar, has a full sized neck, can be played without a strap, comes with a very solid case, and is less expensive. The Baby Taylor sounds great but is not really small enough to be a true travel guitar, and is more expensive. I didn't have a chance to check out the Go Guitar, but again, its significantly more expensive. If you're thinking about the Martin, check out the Washburn Rover first, its a great travel guitar at a great price.
