The guitar that thought it was a violin
I did not buy mine through Sweetwater, but a San Jose CA shop, name omitted, that I lived near for many years. A special order, it came to me pretty much as shipped by Martin and was untouched by the dealer.
I thought I understood "setup" on a guitar, but I leaned so much more studying the factory setup this came with. It was precision clinical clean. I've taken about 1/2mm off the saddle height for personal taste, that is it.
These are "handmade" in America, but clearly mass-made using templates and pattern lathe style automation.
This is my main strummer, my little martin that thinks it is a violin.
I bought this specifically because I was tired of the metallic bright brilliance of spruce tops with new barely broke in phosphor bronze strings. I seldom touch any other of my acoustic guitars now.
I now play with fairly old, dull strings, picking right at or above the soundhole, fingerstyle, and I LOVE IT.
You get a very warm deep tone that it the exact opposite of those ringy bright shiny sounding spruce tops. If I strum the low strings super hard with my thumb, I get a growl that is almost like an electric, neck pickup with a little low end overdrive distortion.
This is my favorite neck of all my guitars, electric or acoustic; it is the only one I've owned with a true satin finish. I'll never respect any sticky, grabby gloss finished neck again.
Sustain is not as great as a spruce top. Volume is not as loud either; this is not a dreadnought, though Martin makes one in the 15M line.
The plain satin finish and unbound body will bother you at first, but after a year or so, all other guitars will look over-finished and over glossed; the satin finish plain-jane look you will grow to love.
Second best money I've ever spent on 6 strings, and the best I've spent in 36 years. This includes Gibson, Fender, Yamaha, Takamine, Ovation, more (never had a "custom" guitar, all my guitars are under $2K USD in cost).
