BEST IN CLASS!
Based on my excellent long term relationship with my sales representative, Chris McCown, I took a "leap of faith", and purchased my first internet guitar, sight unseen, based on his recommendation and the customer reviews... This overall guitar buying experience has been truly amazing!
I was a little concerned about purchasing an acoustic guitar without actually "playing it", but not anymore... The guitar arrived in 3 business days, travelled from Fort Wayne to Denver, and WAS STILL IN TUNE when I opened the box!
I was so confident in my new purchase - I played it at a gig - that very night!
Now regarding the guitar itself; amazing playability, TONE, and very good electronics. The set up was great, in short - the quality of the guitar exceeded my expectations. I have never played an acoustic guitar that has so many overtones / sustain. It seemingly "ring's for - forever. Low action, good set up, HOLDS IT'S TUNING and is a joy to perform with. The Fishman electronics also sounded very good through the PA...
If you are in the market for a GREAT 12 string, at this price point, this is the best Martin for the money!
