What a great little guitar!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
This is a great little guitar. Plays like a dream and has a rich, tight tone. It also has good overall projection and is alot of guitar for under $300.00. I keep this guitar in the back seat of my car and play whenever I have a few free moments. The neck fits comfortably in your hand and the solid Sitka spruce top produces great tone and surprising volume. If you are looking for a small guitar, for travel, camping, or for a youngster to learn on, this is the guitar for you!
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Seems to be well made. And although it is smaller and built outside the US, it has the world famous Martin build quality and is a great value. I think you can play many styles of music with this little guitar. It sounds great with a pick or finger style. Chords sound full and complex, and single notes ring clear and true. If you can play it on a full size acoustic, you can play it on this little gem as well.
Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position?
Smaller body style makes this guitar very comfortable to play. Action is just right out of the box, and it comes with high end Martin strings. Perfect to just pick up and play, no hassles no worries, and it stays in tune very well, too.
Is the tone well balanced? How does it project?
Great Martin tone. Very balanced sound. Lows are deep and rich, highs are clear and tight. This guitar projects well, especially for such a small body. If you need more volume and projection, Martin makes this same guitar as an acoustic/ electric, so you can plug into and amp and play as loud as you want! But this guitar is perfect for playing around the campfire doing sing-a-longs and is a GREAT guitar for practice.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Finish is good on this guitar. Don't expect a "show" guitar. The top has some imperfections, but they are merely cosmetic and do not affect the sound of the guitar at all.
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
This guitar is more then I expected at this price point. I have played many Martin backpackers, and they don't hold a candle to this guitar. I don't think you can buy a better guitar in this price range. Seriously, if you need a smaller, travel guitar, this is it. Buy it, you will not regret it.
How was the action out of the box?
Perfect action out of the box.This guitar is very easy to play, and everything feels the same up and down the neck as a full size guitar. And the sweet Martin gig bag is an added bonus! Looks great and does a good job of protecting this kick-ass little guitar!
