The guitar comes with Martin SP light strings with the Cleartone treatment (MSP 7100's). I am not a fan of Cleartone strings. I immediately put a set of D'Addario EJ-19 bluegrass strings on it and what a difference in boom and bass response! I love this guitar. You will not be disappointed if you pick one up.
Bottom Line: a versatile, tough, great-sounding guitar. A guitar from a very respected company of proven craftsmanship, with a LIFETIME WARRANTY!! And, a guitar which, because of the materials and manufacturing location, is priced in a price-range most players are comfortable paying. A true value all around, and I have yet to see or hear a better guitar for a better price anywhere else.
Can't speak to how it compares to the high end guitars, but for a progressing player on a budget, this is perfect. I'm always happy to pick it up and play.
I actually wasn't planning on purchasing this guitar at all. I was helping a friend buy his first guitar, and this model was right at the top of his price range. I picked it up and started playing it for him, and...wow. So, I played every other guitar in the store under $1,000 (I played them acoustically and through a Fishman Loudbox Artist), and this was, overall, by FAR the best of them.
Admittedly, some other guitars under $1,000 did sound better either plugged in, or acoustically, but as a total package this guitar took the cake. I had been looking for a workhorse guitar to gig with, and at some point (not that day) I was prepared to spend about $1,000 on something like a used Taylor 314ce, but this guitar does everything I require, and I paid less than half of what I was expecting from a more expensive instrument.
Some people will dock this guitar because of the HPL neck and sides, the richlite fretboard, the satin finish, and other corners Martin cut to make this guitar so inexpensive. And in some sense, they're right. It's not a guitar you would buy just to brag about owning it. It's not the best sounding guitar I've ever heard. Heck, it's not even close to the best sounding guitar I own (that title belongs to a Breedlove Performance Focus). But, it has a nice, balanced sound, the electronics--though inexpensive--sound pretty darn good, and it's got a comfortable, easily-playable feel, especially for a Martin. You can play this guitar live, and nobody will think you sound bad unless it's because you're a bad guitar player.Read more ›
