General What is your overall opinion of this product? Bought this for my 14 year old daughter for Christmas. It is a really nice sounding and playing "little" guitar. She is proud to be Martin owner. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Looks to be very nice quality. Gig bag is a plus. Fret board feels great. Nice smooth fret work. Electronics sound great. Feel Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position? Plays great right out of the box. Tone Is the tone well balanced? How does it project? Sounds amazing. Nice well balanced sound. Great tone from electronics also. Sounds full and rich. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish looks great. Playability How was the action out of the box? Plays great. She couldn't believe how well it played compared to her other cheaper name brand guitar. Well worth the price.
Electronics & Martin Customer Service Lacking

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The Little Martin guitar seems to be structurally well made; however, none of the electronics in the guitar I ordered worked (including the input jack). The guitar also seemed to have a tuning issue. General Your general opinion of this product. I love the sound and feel of the Little Martin, but am extremely disappointed in Martin's level of customer service. The Martin repair facilities were weeks out on repairing my "new" guitar that I received for Christmas and the Martin factory was over 10 weeks out on repairing it. Upon calling Fishman, the makers of the electronics, they told me to take it to my local music tech and pay to have the electronics removed to send back to them. Once the defective electronics were received by Fishman, they would send out replacements and I could pay to have them reinstalled. I was even told by the Martin factory that the high-end guitar took priority over my "new" purchase. Thank goodness AMS has a return and refund policy! I will never purchase a Martin again. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? From an acoustic standpoint, the Little Martin sounded as good as my full-size. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I loved the look of the Little Martin.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Easiest guitar i have ever played and dont see ANY reason to not last a long time! General Your general opinion of this product. I'm AMAZED at the huge sound if this little beast...right out of the box! Very easy to play! Fingers don't hurt when playing for long periods. Love the small scale! ABSOLUTELY IMPRESSED! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Excellent tone! Can compete with larger guitars with NO problem! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Great look!
