What is your opinion of this product?
I wanted something for travel -- something durable and airline friendly, but I did not want to compromise on the tone, volume, or playability. Martin knows how to make guitars, so no big surprise with this model. I've dropped mine more than once, bumped it into walls, etc., and given it a rough ride, but there's not one mar or scar to be seen, or heard. Made from HPL may not seem optimum, but when you see, feel and listen, you will not be disappointed with how it plays. And because s not American-made, some might second guess this guitar, but the quality and price speak for themselves!
