Playability and Feel
Great Mid-Level Martin
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The natural-finish top is very prone to marking but otherwise the HPL sides and back are really durable. Made in Mexico, which concerns some, but not me -- guitar feels incredibly well-made. I have no qualms with its quality.
How has it stood up over time?
Sounds better than the day I bought it. The top is subject to some coloration and marking as time goes on but not a big deal as I never plan on selling this guitar.
Your general opinion of this product.
Incredible guitar for $499. Blown away every time I pick it up.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The neck is BEAUTIFUL and plays very quickly. Love the smoothness and sleek fretboard. Not natural wood but sure feels like it.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Tone is wonderful, especially through an amp. Pickups are Fishman, so you know you're dealing with top-notch electronics.
How did the stain or paint job look?
I LOVE the all natural top, especially the smell. Like I said, it's got no stain so it can mark easily but this guitar really projects sound like no other, which I think may be contributed to the natural sitka spruce.
How was the action out of the box?
Depends on how the factory sets it; all guitars will be different. Mine was higher than I prefer but adjusted it shortly after.
