What is your overall opinion of this product?
I have played guitars both recreationally and in bands for over 30 years and have owned several Martins. This one is no different! Great quality right out of the box and is ready to play. No set up is even required on Martins unless it is a fluke. This guitar feels and sounds much like a D28 to me. The gloss top, herringbone rosette, and abalone fret board dots dress it up just enough to be beautiful, but the satin back and sides protect the finish from superficial scratches that are commonly found on the gloss finishes. For the price, cannot be happier with this model. Plays great, looks great, and sounds even better. From gospel to bluegrass to country to rhythm rock, it will stand up against any other brand or model and put them to shame.
