I own twenty guitars and mostly acoustics, 4 Martins, 4 Taylors, Bedell, Lo Prinzi, Yamaha and 2 Guilds and have been playing for several decades. Particularly enjoy finger style, blues, jazz, swing, and country. Most of all I enjoy the clear sustain and fullness of a great sounding guitar. This guitar is a combination of the feel and sound of an old 30s 00-1 Gibson, but a lot more. I got hooked by playing it, so I recommend you relax, sit-down and take some time to play this guitar. Forget that the sound board is not spruce and the back and sides are not rosewood, maple or whatever. This is a well thought out, classic looking guitar, with a really surprising sound and comfortable playability. Martin know what they are doing and that goes for their CEO as well!
