Playability and Feel
Best purchase I've ever made!
Your general opinion of this product.
You notice the quality of the instrument as soon as you see it and start playing it.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Best made guitar that I personally have played. I can see this guitar being very dependable.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The guitar feels fast to me. Neck has satin finish that aides in playability. The electronics onboard are top-notch and very easy to use. I can explain enough on the quality of this Martin.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone is broad with a smooth sounding middle but with perfect pitch on the highs and lows. This guitar sounds amazing unplugged or plugged in!
How was the action out of the box?
Action was perfect straight out of the box. No adjustments needed yet.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish was polished but with satin finishes on side and back. Immaculate finish!
How has it stood up over time?
I have had no complaints yet. Only had it for a week so far but I can't imagine anything going wrong with it.
