Stage-ready, this model is small enough to take anywhere and comes equipped with Fishman Isys T electronics, SP Lifespan Martin strings and a padded gig bag. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this model will be donated to the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (www.each.org.uk). Solid Sapele top, HPL finish back & sides, Stratabond neck.more
This guy, albeit tiny, it has a great sound. It has a simple pre-amp and the pickup is rich and full. Even though it is small, I can switch back and forth between this and full-size guitars without a hitch.
Probably my favorite guitar. Don't let it's size fool you. Although many despise Martin's composite I feel it's a good choice here and the solid top gives it that signature Martin sound.
(This is my first post so excuse my overexcitement)...ever since I really got into Ed's music, great performance quality, and overall talent with music, I've become so amused with learning similar ways he did or is. I'd really like to get into more synthesizers so I can play for myself when I am on stage and I don't have to rely on a band. If anyone's used his synthesizers, I'd love to hear how they are compared to other ones and GarageBand appliances...PS I don't have this guitar but consider this an introductory paragraph
Before the Taylor 414ce, I was a huge Martin fan. This guitar pretty much is why. HPL back and sides, solid Hog top, this little guy possesses a big sound for a small package. Martin low end and balanced highs. This is my go to when I'm not serving for Cell Group and just chilling.
