What is your opinion of this product?
I ordered this guitar here at ams, and before even receiving it I decided to send it back. I thought, "that's way too expensive. No way it's gonna be worth what they want for it." For whatever reason I decided to open it up and at least check it out before sending it back. When I first pulled the black Martin hardcase with gold hardware out of the box I knew I had something. It only got better after opening the case to reveal this beautiful guitar. the quality and craftsmanship of Martin simply can't be beaten. Most importantly, it plays and sounds like a dream. Those of you who may be worried about the man made materials.. in my opinion, they in no way are shortcuts to make a cheap guitar. The fretboard is smooth as silk, durable,easy to maintain, and for those that care, environmentally friendly. As far as the man made nut and saddle affecting the sound? I couldn't tell you. All I know is it sounds, looks, and plays great so I don't really care what it's made of. Thanks ams!
