A great price for a great guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I have always wanted a Martin guitar. AMS made it possible for which I am grateful. The sound and tone of this guitar rings out with clarity and precision. Chords are easier to play as the neck is the perfect size for my hand. The wood quality is noticeable throughout. The look and feel is all "Martin". Thanks again AMS.

Great Mid-Level Martin
The natural-finish top is very prone to marking but otherwise the HPL sides and back are really durable. Made in Mexico, which concerns some, but not me -- guitar feels incredibly well-made. I have no qualms with its quality.
Sounds better than the day I bought it. The top is subject to some coloration and marking as time goes on but not a big deal as I never plan on selling this guitar.
Your general opinion of this product.
Incredible guitar for $499. Blown away every time I pick it up.
The neck is BEAUTIFUL and plays very quickly. Love the smoothness and sleek fretboard. Not natural wood but sure feels like it.
Tone is wonderful, especially through an amp. Pickups are Fishman, so you know you're dealing with top-notch electronics.
I LOVE the all natural top, especially the smell. Like I said, it's got no stain so it can mark easily but this guitar really projects sound like no other, which I think may be contributed to the natural sitka spruce.
Depends on how the factory sets it; all guitars will be different. Mine was higher than I prefer but adjusted it shortly after.

Best $500.00 Guitar I have ever owned.
The guitar is well made and the quality is what you would expect from a Martin.
I have only had the guitar for 4 days.
Your general opinion of this product.
I have a Martin D 18V guitar but I needed a guitar that has a pickup and that I could play out side. This guitar is perfect, it came with a guitar strap peg. The action is perfect and the sound is just what you would expect from a Martin. This Made in Mexico guitar is well worth the money.
The guitar is a little heavy but that is alright The neck feels just right.
Well Balanced highs and lows, clear clean tone.
I can not find any flaws.
I am telling the truth, This guitar was perfect out of the box.
