Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This is my first Martin purchase. Neck is a wide 1.75 but manageable. I like the 24.9 scale. Has nice projection and resonance. Does not get boomy like a dreadnought body shape. Granadillo back and sides sounds great. I see no issues. Neck has a soft V shape. It's very comfortable. Electronics also sound great. PLEK seemed to do a good job of making it playable out of the box. Frets are standard tiny vintage size Martin likes.I was able to put 10's tuned down a half step and still get no buzz.

Musical Background:

Playing electric since 1998, this is my first USA made acoustic.
