Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good things don't come cheap, but this did!"
Overall: I bought this guitar after trying out a few Martin guitars a few friends had... Man, was I hooked! Just looking at it makes me smile, and jamming on it, plugged, or unplugged, is a dream. It's such a solid package. Well crafted [well it IS a Martin] great tone, lovely sustain, bright tones on the high end, and that neck lets you FLY.. Really, the list goes on and on... Everybody's said it already, but this guitar is a beauty in its price range. You won't regret the investment!
Style of Music: Country, rock, and of course, BLUES.

"A GREAT GUITAR!!!"
Sound: For a guitar of this price it's great. Very good warm tone and sustain. I like it because it's so light, could play it all night. Ease of Use: very easy to change sounds just use different strings. Quality: It is very roadworthy, I am a bit worried that because the top is so thin it might crack someday (hasn't yet and I've been through a lot of temp changes)but I think thats what gives it its great sound. Everything else is great. The Wow Factor: Its a "martin" and I'm a fender player but I always use it in at least a couple songs at gigs. It gives that warm ballad sound. Overall: The head stock looks bad, dont like that. The frets have warn a bit but thats to be expected. If I lost it, I'd get another martin prob a more expensive one as I have a few more $$ now and they may sound a bit warmer, dont know but would buy another martin for my gear.
Style of Music: rock and country

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
