"Beautiful in looks and sound-a wonderful guitar!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Hard pressed to find the right words! This is a seriously gorgeous guitar, the woods, the finish and what a dream to play! Lovely sounding guitar and comfortable to hold. This guitar is hard to beat for the price. First time I used an on board tuner, it was easy and fun. Comes with a nice gig bag. Way to go Martin Guitar!. If you're looking for a higher-end model, but don't want to cough up seriously big bucks, don't wait, grab this one, you won't be sorry.Zounds is a great way to get a perfect guitar-packaged well, arrived in two days as promised and undamaged-Thank You LORD for providing a way!PS. Since this is all wood, have some silica gel packs when your guitar arrives and toss a big handful in the case if you live in a humid area like Seattle.

"Nice."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned and own many Martins and Taylors. Never found a Martin that compared to a Taylor....., until now. I had spine surgery a while back and my neck mobility is severely limited. I prefer a dread naught but decided to try this model. It’s smaller, easier to handle and fits me better due to my limitations now. Out of the 6 Martins I have owned (sold five) this one finally sings like a Martin or as a thousand dollar guitar should. It was ready to go right out of the box. Feels good, neck is easy and has that sound I was wishing my other Martins had. Better than my high dollar Taylor. Finally, a Martin that I like.

"Great guitar, service sucks"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I bought this guitar and have played it for a couple of years. it's a great sounding guitar, especially when it's plugged in, just gorgeous.Unfortunately, the top split and there is a gaping space between the two pieces of wood on the top of the guitar. I contacted zZounds and they sent me the material I need to show POP immediately (you rock zZounds!!!) Then I contacted Martin through USPS, only way to do it, about it, but they DO NOT SERVICE THEIR OWN GUITARS...sorry to yell but I it to be clear they don't stand behind their product. I can certainly bring it to a licensed Martin repairman and wait for over 12 months because of a flaw in the manufacturing? Nope sorry.So now I got a great sounding Martin with a crack down the middle...thanks Martin.

"Great sound from a Martin that doesn’t completely break the bank."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have bought and played so many electric guitars over the years and never really looked into buying an acoustic guitar for myself. I have an old epiphone acoustic laying around that was given to me by a friend years ago, but I never bought a decent one to play for myself. So I went about on YouTube of course to look at some reviews. There’s a lot of acoustic guitars out there so it’s very hard to make a decision based on them alone. I really did want a Martin so I knew that much. and, at that time thought they were very expensive. that they were really expensive.Then I found a really nice review of this Martin guitar and a Taylor. To me the Martin blew it away, and that had me sold. The only thing that bothered me was that I couldn’t play the Martin because I don’t have any music stores close to me. So I just decided to buy this, and boy am I satisfied! I’ve had it for a week now and I just love it. The sound is BIG and it’s a very, very light acoustic guitar. The setup is great out of the box and I think it’s a great guitar for the money. I know that maybe there is a guitar out there that may sound better and might be cheaper, but I just don’t have the time to go that deep into researching the internet to find one. And I have played Martins before, so I trusted the name. If you are looking to buy an acoustic for anything you are doing, this is a great choice of guitar to get. I’m very happy with my purchase, and zZounds makes it very easy to pay, I may add. Don’t hesitate on this guitar. It plays great, sounds great and looks wonderful! I’m very happy with my purchase! Also, it sounds great plugged in and the tuner right below the high E string is very nice to have in there. You don’t even notice it’s there when you aren’t tuning the guitar. I put 4 stars for manufacturer support because I’ve never dealt with them. And hopefully never will.
