5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD - FANTASTIC GUITAR FOR AN UNBELIEVABLE PRICE!"
Sound: l...ove this guitar! best value ever! sounds/plays great! I fingerpick and strum - so easy, fun w. this guitar. Looks like a work of art, worth 10 x what the cost is for a Martin. I also play a 12-string Yamaha and I'm so happy I picked up THIS Martin .. wow! in all areas. Feature: Acoustic/Electric w. built-in tuner ... not 'fancy' but beautifully made, enjoyable to play, gorgeous to look at :) I actually like it better 'not plugged in' but either way, a great deal, an awesome guitar! Ease of Use: Use a capo or note ... use a pick or fingerpick ... strum ... easy, sounds great, feels 'right' and there is no 'learning curve' - excellent playability! Quality: Well made - finish and fit are perfect. Reliable, dependable, sturdy and a guitar to 'take on the road' - there are no minus' to this guitar . Well worth the money, to say the least. Will 'open up' after awhile for an even richer sound. Value: WOW! ... you cannot get anything better for this price ... thought it would cost 5 x as much! LOVE IT and the price cannot be beat! Manufacturer Support: Martin is the best - around 'forever' - in the family and made in the USA... handmade, gorgeous guitar, friendly and 'know everything' people. Warranty is for life! The Wow Factor: Looks like a 'work of art' - the wood, color, shape, style = outstanding ... def. a guitar you will lust after. Also, sounds awesome!!! Overall: Keeping this forever ... I also play a 12 string Yamaha - so, these two guitars are keepers for life! I chose this because it is a 'Martin' . meets my musical needs .. if lost or stolen I'd replace w. same or maybe w. the Dreadnaught DC 1E - I love the feel, the sound, the look, the beauty, the ease of playing. There is nothing I dislike about this guitar.
Style of Music: finger picking country, folk, blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best " Bang for the Buck" guitar on this planet"
Sound: I'll make this simple and consice. This guitar is without a doubt the " Bang for the Buck" you can get. Martin has finally put all the top level build quality, materials and skill in to this instrument , kept all the unecessary trim amd frills off and built a real " working Players" dream guitar. Feature: It's most useful feature is it plays and sounds like a dream and you can use it night in and night out as a working player without fear of scratching it or pampering it. It's a work tool and a really fine one. Ease of Use: came with all the care and feeding manuals, case and necessary paperwork Quality: I really don't believe that Martin could build this any better. This is an average guys chance to own true Martin quality without breaking the bank. Value: this guitar is worth ten times it's price The Wow Factor: it's simple elegance is it's beauty. Overall: It's a hand built Martin, what else needs to be said?
Style of Music: blues/country/jazz

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.
