Love my new Martin guitar!


I play at home for my own pleasure.

A great sounding guitar.


Match this with a Fishman SA220 and you have a powerhouse sound as an acoustic singer/songwriter. The product is solid, sounds great, came out of the case with a good setup. The only 2 problems that I have is the angle of the tuner window occasionally is hard to see so I have attached an external tuner on the headstock which is easier to see. Also, the cord plug is offset and gets in the way of the guitar strap. I would rather have the chord go into the strap lock. Neither of these two items is a killer, but makes it a 4 start vs. 5 star rating for me.

Best Money can buy


Love this guitar best first investment I ever made on a big name brand guitar its true what they say you get for what you pay work I think this guitar is the perfect balance of everything the 3,000 GPCPA1 is the same thing except laminated and pearl on the fret board save the money unless you love the looks...but it does also have a digital tuner lol and can do way much more then the analog version

A little bit of everything


Picked up this nice Martin at my local Sam Ash in Raleigh NC. This is an incredibly versatile guitar. I'm anxious to try some different style strings, maybe some 80-20's just to see the different sounds the guitar will yield. The sepele back and sides does not have rosewood style bass but the mids and highs are even, clear and great sounding. It's also a great value!
