What is your opinion of this product?
I spent several weeks researching for an acoustic/Electric that would meet my performing needs. I went to the two Big Box Music stores to test-drive the models I was interested in purchasing and settled on this Martin. Do not be afraid of buying this guitar sight-unseen: it arrived in perfect condition, perfectly in tune and intonation was dead-on!! One minor neck tweak (to lower the string action) and I was ready for the stage! This HPL neck is rock solid and, once set, will not move. The guitar has that nice, deep Martin tone, comfortable neck and the price isn’t at all painful. Do yourself a favor: BUY THIS GUITAR!!

Great Value!
What is your opinion of this product?
Really nice guitar with rich sound. The face is beautiful and has the look of a more expensive guitar. The backs and sides are made of what they call High Pressure Laminate (HPL). The HPL has a artificial look/feel to it when up close. I was aware of that when I ordered, so it was not an issue with me. Great guitar to take along with you for casual strumming.

What is your opinion of this product?
Looks nice and sounds good. But really no excuse for the high action. Hard to play and I'm dissatisfied for sure!
