Perfect for everywhere, anywhere!
Feels really good and sounds bright. This guitar can take a beating. I lowered the action when I first got this guitar and noticed that alot of the weight is on the neck of the guitar. Through wear and tear you'll find the guitars top is very prone to getting scratched up over time from your picks due to its natural finish. Great sound from the Fishman Isys T pickups system but its built in tuner is crap. Would be better if they resorted to a sound-hole pickup such as the Fishman Sonitone so that there is no hole to accommodate the side mounted preamp thus affecting the guitar sound.
These days I use this guitar as my backup. I bring it with my main guitar for the bigger gigs as a backup incase I break a string, for songs that have alternative tunings or for certain songs that I feel deserves the sound from this guitar but in general, its my backup.
Great guitar for the price and size
The guitar has considerable sound for the miniature body. Although if you're performing in front of any audience get yourself a good amp of plug into P.A. The fishman on it is a great preamp and the guitar is really though. (I dropped mine more than once and so far only couple visible scratches). Definately recommend for travelling and beginner guitarists as well as practice instriments!
Great with a little work
This is a fantastic small bodies guitar from one of the kings of acoustic makers. Ideal as a smaller bodied instrument, for travel, the living room, or just for players of a smaller stature, it has great resonance and is surprisingly loud and touch sensative. Dynamic playing is rewarding and the string spacing should suit most players.
However, the setup from he factory was lacking. The action was very high, making for poor intonation. I'm hoping this slipped through the QC net but shouldn't happen on any guitar let alone a Martin.
It only took a little work to get it playing perfectly but it shouldn't have need needed in the first place.
I love the multi-laminate neck, which has been stable through many travels and climate changes, a true testemant to good design.
