"There are better alternatives for less money!"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
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).
Gig bag is ok, but won't protect when tossed in with other luggage. Limited fretboard.
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.
More expensive than alternatives, and not as good.
The Wow Factor:
I returned it. What more can I say.
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.
