I bought this guitar about 9 months ago and it has played beautifully ever since. having the built in tuner was a great surprise. The guitar sounds great both plugged in and acoustic. I love that Martin sound!! It has a great mid and high range, lacks a bit on the low end. if that is something you want maybe go for the dreadnought model. All in all a great guitar and i am very happy with my purchase.

Good sustain, excellent playability, great sound! Martin is charging a lot for a guitar full of alternative materials. However, it sounds better than the sum of its parts indicate. I am in year three with a lot of travel year round. This is a tough instrument, stays in tune and keeps its tonal qualities.

Looked for and played a ton of guitars before settling on this Martin. It has a great tone and sounds even better when it's plugged in. The one thing i was a little disappointed in was the on board tuner- the LEDs don't fade as it gets closer to tune. So there is a little bit of play where it can show green, even when you make a slight adjustment. It still works- it's just something that i noticed that could be improved on. I will say though, as sweet as the guitar was- i won't buy from L&M again. They gave me the OM model and had to come back the next day to switch. It was going to take a week to get it set up and they wouldn't even throw in a set of strings! For $1200- i expected a little better service

I just purchased this guitar a few hours ago, after trying out about a dozen guitars in the same price range. It came down to a Taylor 314ce vs this Martin. The Martin beat it hands down in sound, and after a 3 hour comparison, the Marin also beat it for playability. I'll write another review in a few months after I've performed and recorded with this beautiful instrument!

A super guitar, fantastic value for an intermediate to advanced player. I got mine 2 months ago, Now I just can't put it down! I had the action lowered after purchase, it is now (by far) the most comfortable guitar I have ever played. Sound is excellent, especially after installing a set of John Pearce PB 53's. The neck on my guitar is solid mahogany with a richlite fret board on top, which i must agree is a top class substitute for African Ebony. The Fishman Analog electronics works well. Bottom Line: the best US made acoustic/elect guitar for the money. Well done C.F. Martin.

I just love this guitar! Sound is very good, I tried all the acoustics and nothing else compared, except a Taylor. This came with a hard shell case, where the Taylor did not. The neck is made of richlite Which may turn some people off but I love it. Less resistant to dirt and oils from my hands.

I bought this guitar about a year and a half ago and it's been probably one of the best investments I've ever made. I tested many different brands of acoustic and I have not found one that sounds as rich as this model. It has a wide nut width which lends well to finger picking. It has a beautiful rich tone when strumming and it's bright and crisp when picking. If you like a really deep bass acoustic this one is might not for you. I find most Dreadnoughts I've played to give a deeper tone than my Martin will produce but none can match the mid and upper range of this body style of Martin. Bang for buck I don't think you will find better value than these class of Martin guitars. - The last time I took it in to get the neck adjusted, I sat down to test it, strummed two chords and both technicians stopped what they were doing to ask me what guitar that was. - :)
