Good stand-in for my expensive Martins.


home pickin', and I attend three different picker's circles each week. I bought this Mexi-Martin after playing a friend's. I take it to preserve my D-18 and keep it safe from normal bumps, nicks and scratches that are inevitable when toting about. This guitar has surprisingly good sound, has that Martin full bass, a very nice neck...all the acoustic stuff is top notch...but the Fishman Sonotone sounds brittle and 'quacky'-as do all undersaddles (to my ears)-cax fix with an EQ preamp, but most folks will love it as it comes.
