Great Looking, Great Sounding 12 String Guitar!
What is your opinion of this product?
It's a Martin, and not a cheaper one, so the sound and craftsmanship on this guitar are outstanding. It's sleeker than the usual 12 string acoustic. The neck isn't fat or anything, but it's noticeably bigger than the 6 strings. I love having a 12 string with a built in tuner on it!

Expecting more
What is your opinion of this product?
Guitar was in tune right out of box. The finish and wood scent were terrific. Strings should be BRONZE wound and would be better tone for guitar, so I need to change them. Also, this guitar is smaller. It almost seems like a kid guitar. It is a Martin, which means quality. I will use as back up to play certain songs my electric 12 cannot handle. The price seems a little high. I noticed I needed a longer strap due to button placement. Excellent, sturdy case included.

Outstanding quality. Outstanding tone.
Your general opinion of this product.
Beautiful. Very light acoustic with a full tone. Sounds great plugged in just as well as it does straight acoustic. First Martin I've owned. I'm sold.
Great quality. Best acoustic I've owned.
Light weight smooth playing.
Perfect
Low and very playable. First guitar I bought that I didn't need to change strings on.
Good looking guitar.
Just got it. Should last.

My 4th Martin
Your general opinion of this product.
My 4th Martin and well worth the money.
Excellent.
The guitar came out of the box and played well but within a week I had reduced the bridge several times. Now plays and feels perfect.
A bit bright through my Fender Deluxe Reverb. I have a Rode mic however through which it is rich and real.
Good.
Perfect.
All of my Martins retain their perfection and they really do sound better as they age.

Absolute beauty!
Your general opinion of this product.
This is my first Martin product. Out of the case it everything I wanted in a twelve-string guitar.
Well made construction and comfortable playing.
Light weight, yet very durable. Neck is great (I have smaller hands) to play. Controls are easy to use (not sure if the tuner is that reliable).
Bright sound, especially when played through my SWR California Blonde.
Action out of the box was incredible! No adjustments seem to be in order.
Nice looking finish..beautiful guitar.
Have not had it long enough to comment, but I believe it will be a "forever" instrument.
