"Martin that will be your friend for life."
Deep rich sound far better than comparably prices Taylors which sound too bright. It has great volume and sounds great in all sound ranges. Play it hard and it sings... Play it light it hums. I tried em all and the sound quality of this Martin is just above the rest.
This Martin has the beauty of a great but not gaudy design. Its sturdy appearance does not sacrifice its sound quality. Workmanship is first rate. It is obvious that wood used was chosen with care. Fretboard, headstock and top inlays very attractive and well done.
Its a Martin... The workmanship is second to none. Taylors are precision made but a Martin is a work of art. Martins hold their value due to quality and solid construction. You do not want to bang it around but if you did it will still be great. Yes, I would play it on the road only because it is such a joy to play.
Martin stands behind its product and knows the value of reputation. Visit the Martin Factory and you will be impressed. Martin responds to e-mail promptly.
Yes, its expensive. But it will be the last guitar you will ever need to buy and you can expect it to be in a family for generations. If you can afford this Martin go for it. You won't be sorry. Martins hold their value incredibly well.
The Wow Factor:
The appeal of this Martin is it just a great Martin. Period. It lives up to its reputation and you will draw a crowd when playing. No genuis here just a great instrument.
If something happens to my Martin I will get another.
