The Fishman Presys Plus Preamp system gives you some impressive features and control over the sound, beyond the usual bass and treble.

Martin Guitar has long recognized the serious nature of the earth's dwindling resources and has focused attention on alternative materials. At Martin, they're committed to making guitars that are within reach of every aspiring guitarist.

Martin's breakthrough X-Series features guitars that are constructed with a combination of highly compressed wood fibers (high-pressure laminate, called HPL) and traditional tonewoods. They've found HPL to be an extremely durable and workable material. Martin has crafted ways to build traditional Martin shapes with HPL that yield incredibly long-lasting, affordable guitars. What's more, they've managed to build them so they possess the famous Martin sound and playability found in their more expensive guitars.


About Martin Guitars
For well over a century and a half, the Martin Guitar Company has been continuously producing acoustic instruments that are acknowledged to be the finest in the world.

The Martin Guitar Company has, through the years, managed to survive with each succeeding generation from C. F. Martin, Sr.'s Stauffer influenced creations of the 1830s to recent developments introduced by C. F. Martin IV. Continuous operation under family management is a feat bordering on the remarkable, reflecting six generations of dedication to the guitarmaker's craft. In or out of the music industry, C. F. Martin has few rivals for sheer staying power.

Throughout its colorful history, the company has adapted successfully to continual changes in product design, distribution systems, and manufacturing methods. In spite of the many changes, C. F. Martin has never veered away from its initial commitment to quality. The concern for producing the finest instruments possible in 1833 is especially in evidence today at Martin's expanded facility in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.

Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
I'd give this guitar a big thumbs up for build quality! Not one single issue, and I'm not necessarily easy on guitars. They get played hard and often!
Reliability
How has it stood up over time?
I've had it for 2 years and it's help up like a champ!
General
Your general opinion of this product.
I've had it for 2 years and I absolutely love it. from Bluegrass to Praise and Worship tunes it can cover all of the bases without having to sell a kidney to afford it! An absolute workhorse of a guitar!~
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Plays great. The lower profile neck is a really nice feature.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
PURE MARTIN! Tone is on par with the high dollar Martins. It sounds the way a Martin should. Thick smooth and LOUD! These babys are cannons.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
It's a satin finish, so there isn't much to talk about.
Action
How was the action out of the box?
The action was perfect right out of the box. I didn't have to adjust the neck, bridge or anything else. I just tuned it up and she's been stable ever since!
