Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? No problems with it, other than replacing the screws on the electronics interface on top as they have rusted in this Florida humidity. This guitar seems about as impervious to harm as a guitar can be... Reliability How has it stood up over time? I have used this as my primary gigging guitar now for about 2 years and I'm still in love. General Your general opinion of this product. People ask about it all the time. Everyone is pleasantly impressed with the sound, plugged in to my Fishaman solo amp. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Light, small, feels alot like an electric guitar, which is what attracted me to it in the first place. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I have found that some strings are too bright for this guitar. It has a brightness all its own. I love the sound of Martin FX strings on it, but I break them too easily, so I use John Pearse Phospher Bronze and like the sound and strength. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? N/A Flat black is perfect Action How was the action out of the box? Action was ok, not what I would be happy with so I tweaked it a bit.
No wood ! but great sounding guitar.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? No problems in 2 years, very dependable to sound the same. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Perfect , I've only had to change the strings 3or4 times. It is so clean ,it could be sold as new. General Your general opinion of this product. I love Martin guitars, I have 4 now. I miss the wood on this guitar but sound is excellent. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Extremely light , perfect size, great action on neck, controls are where they should be, tuner is a plus. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Controls help create the sound you want. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I have not even polished this guitar, it looks great all the time. Action How was the action out of the box? just like I like it.
