I've been playing for about 30 years, being in a very musical family with people you have all heard of, but I will keep that anonymous here. All kinds of acoustics, electrics...all brands--low dollar, very high dollar and so on. Knew about the electronics version, but wanted to get this one totally "off the grid," a guitar you could easily carry anywhere with no need for anything else. Mainly just goof playing, playing with random other folks/instruments, whenever, wherever=and handing off to my daughter one day. First of all, for crying out loud, it really is a Martin. I just didn't believe it would play like one, but it does. This is the crown jewel from the Mexico factory. I really like the sound. Not a full sized sound, but a special unique sound that has great range and establishes its own category. It is easy to play. I also like the echo tones from finger percussing the body. I'm not going to ramble on here and give a too long review that many won't read. Let's cut to the chase. This is a Martin. A real Martin with all that that entails, for a low low price. If you are wanting to try guitar, this should probably be your first. If you are an enthusiast and want an everywhere guitar that has small, tight frets and good action that you can take anywhere and accidentally bang up a few times, get this guitar. Finally, if you are someone who likes guitar, get this guitar.
