General Your general opinion of this product. I purchased this 12 string Martin with some hesitation. I know their reputation, as I owned a few in my 34 years of playing. But I just could not get over the price. They always seemed excessively over expensive to me. But after making the plunge, I remember now why they price them as they do. Awesome in a word sums it up! No really, this plain Jane 12 string is really a joy and pleasure to hear and play. It's powerfull and yet delicate to handle. Though sturdy enough, it really can create some fantastic sound played fingerstyle or with a pick. I gave it a good workout and I have to admit she really hung in there. She kept her tuning spot on and voiced whatever I asked of it. Amazing for a 12 string. I didn't think I would say it, but I love it - it's everything you'd want and expect from a guitar at this price.
