Awesome as always!
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Totally perfect as far as craftsmanship goes. But, I cannot speak for the longevity part yet. However, it's a Martin and I know their quality well.
Your general opinion of this product.
I purchased this 12 string Martin with some hesitation. I know their reputation, as I owned a few in my 34 years of playing. But I just could not get over the price. They always seemed excessively over expensive to me. But after making the plunge, I remember now why they price them as they do. Awesome in a word sums it up! No really, this plain Jane 12 string is really a joy and pleasure to hear and play. It's powerfull and yet delicate to handle. Though sturdy enough, it really can create some fantastic sound played fingerstyle or with a pick. I gave it a good workout and I have to admit she really hung in there. She kept her tuning spot on and voiced whatever I asked of it. Amazing for a 12 string. I didn't think I would say it, but I love it - it's everything you'd want and expect from a guitar at this price.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
It can go both ways: bright and dark. It just depends on how you handle her and what style of playing you use. So far I find it very adaptable to every style of playing that I tried. "It's all good."
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish is CF Martin. Superb all the way. She's plain, but pretty in her own way, if ya know what I mean. I'm good with it. Yeah, I'm good with it. Minimalist with her appointments, yet refined in her own way. Yeah, it works for me. Again, it's a keeper!
