A really nice guitar
by Greg Dickinson from Eastern PAA sweet sounding, nice looking and easy to hold guitar. When you get a new guitar home and open the case they usually smell like paint. This one smelled like Grandpa's wood shop. This is my first Mart... read more [+]in and not the last. close [-]

1. It's bright, but not tiny like some T****r out there. Perfect for finger-picking.

3. It's got good amount of bass, but not snappy like some G****n out there. Perfect for solo. close [-]

Music Background: beginner
by the vickster from Seattle WA USAI got this guitar used at a great price in a trade situation so wasn't heavily invested and didn't have any great expectations. Later, after putting on new strings and sitting down with it for about a... read more [+]n hour it dawned on me that this guitar was WAY better than anticipated. It caught me totally off guard. I wonder if they're all this good - if so they're the deal of the century! I will now be selling my '64 00-18 and keeping the SWOMGT - and the 00-18 is no slouch let me tell you! My only complaint is the cheap pixeled material used for the faux tortoise pickguard, but this can easily be switched out for something more elegant, which I intend to do - the guitar deserves it! close [-]

MArtins Best Sounding Guitar
by Paul J Feldman from FloridaI had several Martins. A D-18, A D-28, and an Eric Clapton 000-28 which I recently replaced with the SWOMGT. Yes the EC 000-28 looked great, but it was not enjoyable to play. I was floored by the so... read more [+]und of the SWOMGT. Who would have know cherry wood was such an excellent tone wood. Plus you are helping the envirnment and saving trees. I did have the action lowered and replaced the nut bridge saddle and end pins with bone. I also had a fishman elipse blend installed and now its my go to guitar. Its light as a feather and the latalox fingerboard and bridge feels like ebony. I rosette is blue white and tortoise as is the head stock overlay, binding end strip and heel cap. Martin took no shortcuts with the construction of this guitar save for the satin finished sides and back. The cherry wood grain is gorgeous. the back is book matched and has beautiful grain. The case is the geib knock off by tkl with beautiful dark gree plush lining. You will not be dissapointed with this guitar and you will save a bundle and still have that great Martin sound. I highly recommend this guitar. close [-]
