General What is your overall opinion of this product? Martin wanted to make a more affordable guitar and they have done that. They also have made a guitar that sounds better than any Martin I have ever heard. Well worth the money and it looks great too. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Great quality Feel Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position? Yes, the neck is great for small hands. Tone Is the tone well balanced? How does it project? Sound is great for my flat picking. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Martin's finish always looks good or they don't leave the factory. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Didn't do a comparison but knew Martin was honest and had a good warrentee. Playability How was the action out of the box? Suits me

General Your general opinion of this product. This guitar is superb in every way. The finish was so well done I had to insist that the guitar shop call the Martin rep and assure me it was real rosewood and not a laminate. It is REAL rosewood. Stunning! Only reason I purchased locally instead of from AMS this time was because I had a Gibson to trade in. But AMS was always my main source, fantastic service and prices. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I could not find a single flaw anywhere. If you read my other guitar reviews, I am tough when it comes to quality. I have high expectations and most guitars fall short. But not this baby! 100% all the way! Not a fault anywhere. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Martin tone all the way! I have an HD 35 which is very deep sounding. I wanted something a bit brighter, and this is perfect. Great for all around gigging. Not too deep, not too bright. Just perfect as a main all around axe. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish was so perfect I thought the guitar was plastic or laminated. The rosewood was finished so good that even the salesman had to double check. I made them call Martin while I was there to prove it was real wood, that's how superb the finish was. Unbelieveable, but perfect! I then called my nephew who works there and dhe said, "yes it is real rosewood". You have to see to believe.
Awesome guitar

General Your general opinion of this product. I was looking for an acoustic to just mess around with. This guitar is the ticket. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Absolutely well made. Attention to detail if obvious. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? This is my first foray into acoustic guitars that cost over a couple of hundred dollars. I didn't know for sure what to expect, but I am impressed. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Flawless

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made..... General Your general opinion of this product. Owned numerous acoustic guitars.. and recently sold my Martin D-41 Special to free up some $$ to help pay bills... Decided within a month I was missing that Martin tone, but didn't want to buy something as expensive... also didn't want as much "bling" on my guitar... The D-16RGT is closer to the minimalistic Martin solid-wood guitar... but with the same great Martin tone. I don't like the bright white binding on the fretboard.... too bright... what was Martin thinking? The action on this guitar is fantastic!! I can create bar chords up and down the neck... no problem,.. and it's great for finger style....bends, pull-offs, slides... Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? *balanced* & *snappy / punchy*.... some of the Martins have a booming bass... this is more balanced, but is very punchy when you dig into it.. which is actually what I prefer.. It's still kind of "tight", and I'm thinking it will continue to open up with playing. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very nice finish... I created two tiny dings on the soundboard finish when I was customizing the guitar..... no problem... I've just put my signature on it.
