Great guitar

I took this guitar into a guitar shop for a set up and the Martin repair guy offered to buy it from me. Does that say enough? The guitar has a rich, full sound for its small body, and the Richlite fretboard still feels silky. I have a Taylor in the same price range with 100% exotic unsustainable wood, and this little brown Martin is still superior. I highly recommend it.

Great guitar

For this amount, or any amount, this is a fine guitar. I've had mine for 4.5 years now, and it still remains one of my favorite go-to guitars. Excellent Martin quality and construction. I would like to comment on the Richlite bridge and fretboard. They are not "plastic" as another reviewed mentioned. They are a high-pressure cellulose product that is in endless supply. Judging from the tone of this instrument, it has NO deleterious effects upon the Mahogany's tone quality. I personally prefer ebony, as I'm sure everyone else does, but this is a very interesting and sustainable concept, which like it or not, will become more common even on high-end guitars as we deplete natural tonewoods. Yes, I have my other all-wood martins, but I see nothing wrong with using richlite where appropriate, and I think a guitar of this quality and price point is entirely appropriate and not disappointing in the least.

Plastic Bride on a Martin?

First off, I give mad props to Jeff Tweedy for promoting sustainable guitar making practices. However, I don't feel that it is right that he is using his name to sway people into buying a guitar in the same price range other top acoustics which is clearly making some serious sacrifices in the name of eco-friendlyness. The guitar has a Rich-lite (plastic) bridge and fretboard because ebony is no longer sustainable, the top is mahogany because spruce is no longer sustainable, and all of these elements play a crucial role on the sound of the guitar. I feel like the entire guitar design is based around contorting sustainable materials into a shape and combination that can pass as a decent guitar, but overall, the guitar is not very punchy, rich or interesting in tone... To me... for the king of music I like... like wilco. The harmonics and note definition is very good, but overall volume, dynamics, and character is lacking in my opinion. I hear elements of a parlor guitar, nylon string, and twelve-sting (oddly enough) while I find that the tone is very skewed towards the midrange and has a pleasant quality to the treble and a mild bass response. Combined with the relatively quite output, it almost has a ukulele effect which is nice for chilling and singing along with, but it's definitely not a main guitar. I haven't recorded with it, but I'm sure it would work vey well with a microphone as it is not harsh and not boomy. I really don't like that it has a rich-lite bridge on a $2,000 guitar, to me that is overboard!
