Martin 000C Nylon - Excellent Value

I have a 40 year old Alvarez Yairi classical guitar and I wanted a nylon acoustic-electric guitar with access to the upper frets. I started by buying a Taylor 814ce-N since I had already extensively played a Taylor 814ce-steel and it was a fabulous guitar. Unfortunately I had to return the 814ce-N as the sustain on the treble strings was very poor. My Sweetwater Rep (John Short) suggested this guitar as a replacement, and, as I already have a Martin D-41 (an amazing instrument), I gave the 000C Nylon a try. I am extremely happy with this guitar and it is an absolute joy to play (for hours on end). This is simply a good, solid, basic instrument that sounds great, plays great, and looks great. The intonation is very good over the whole fretboard and the guitar is a breeze to play and has the sustain I like. I was mildly concerned after reading a few reviews that the guitar might be slightly disappointing when plugged in, but I was very pleased with the sound when amplified. There are more expensive guitars (like the Taylor nylon), but if you want great value for a very playable instrument, look no further than the 000C Nylon. (By the way, Sweetwater took back the 814ce-N that I didn't like and I swapped it for an 814ce-steel, which I love. I remain a loyal Sweetwater customer - as of the date of this review I have bought 8 guitars from Sweetwater [with two more on order] and they are all outstanding instruments. I highly recommend Sweetwater and its team).

Great Nylon Crossover

I was looking for something that sounded great (CHECK), I could play unplugged or plug (CHECK), and looked good (CHECK). This guitar exceeded my expectations and I highly recommend it. I own 8 guitars and this is my new go to every time. I love it! Jason Koons is my salesman and he knows his stuff.

Martin 000C Nylon

I own several very nice guitars including some high end stuff ( over 6k), but I just love this guitar. Easy to play and it's mellow sound and easy action make it one of my favorites. My first Martin which has me wondering what was I thinking . if you want to expand your picking horizons ID really recommend adding this guitar to your collect. Fit and finish is great and I truely believe it's made me a better player.

Fantastic Guitar :)

I have played guitar for the past 56 years and have owned a Martin OO -18C since 1966. I never really considered an electric until recently. Bought the guitar with a Fishman sa220 amp. I have never in my life experienced this kind of sound. The neck is very slightly narrower than a classic but the playability and action are the same as my 00-18C. The built in tuner is a very nice feature. This guitar is a keeper. I am a first time customer of Sweetwater and would recommend them to anybody. Their customer service and and followup is the best.

Excellent guitar

Martin did not disappoint....although I was a little concerned prior to the puchase, this guitar offers alot for the money and i am glad that i make the call to Nick at Sweetwater. He was helpful and Informative. The Martin is well built, has attractive features, good Martin tone and is a great value. I own other expensive classical and steel string guitars and i wish Martin had made this guitar sooner and hope they continue to make others like it.
