Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Made here in Pennsylvania in the USA and it is not going to blind you with inlays and such ..But it is clean,neck is straight with a slight bit of relief and the new gloss top is tasteful. General Your general opinion of this product. Had to decide on a import with a lot of nice bling and all solid wood or the new Martin D1GT. I chose the Martin because the quality is easy to see when you look the D1GT over. The sound was a big plus I thought being a Series One dread it would not have the Martin sound I was looking for. I knew it was not going to sound like a Vintage series D18GE but I was surprised when it sounded so close to a Standard Series D18. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Really not much difference from a D18 which is straight braced the D1GT has scalloped bracing.The D18 a dovetail neck the D1GT does not. But hard to tell the difference between the two. The D1GT has the woody sound you get from solid mahogany back and sides and a deep bass. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The Gloss Top is a nice addition and the finish is clean and simple.
I got a good one!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? A Martin made in the USA there is something nice about saying that. Even better you know there acoustics are very well made and very dependable. The D1GT I bought is all of that,very pleased with the detail and quality Martin puts in there lower end acoustics. General Your general opinion of this product. I like Martins they are my first choice when looking for a new acoustic. I have played many different models also many other brands. The D1GT was a much better acoustic than I thought it would be. Sound,fit,finish and action are as good as you can get at this price. Plus a Martin holds it's value and it is made in the USA. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is what you want from a sitka/hog Martin. Nice deep bass and pure hog woody sound. Sometimes you hear lower end Martins being put down because there are plane and are not a dove tail neck like a Standard series and above. The D1GT will surprise you it is a real Martin and a good one. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The D1GT is a new model because it comes with a gloss top now and for a lower end Martin the finish was very good. I like the gloss top instead of the satin finish top on the old models.
