I traded a 00015M and was looking to spend more on a spruce top GPC. I played an 18 and a 28 and then I saw this. Terrific balanced sound unplugged. Plekked for playability. Nice ornamentation for a roadable Martin. Sounds tremendous through a DRRI, which surprised me. The sound hole tuner is a great innovation- saves a space on the pedalboard. Needed flexible core strings and a saddle shave to be perfect. Don't be afraid of richlite. It feels and plays great. Phase switch nixed feedback at small club volume. Bag is nice but gotta get a hard case. Changed my mind about Mexico. Bottom of the Road series, but still well-appointed and well made.
