See other avis.Configuration and pleasant handle.


Ergonomic handle and enjoyable. Cutaway therefore more acute for access.


Sounds nice, matte, warm, present and pleasant acoustic or plugged.
It was not his usual typical Martin.
The preamp is really good and the guitar is resistant to feedback.


I usually do not particularly fond of folks but there ...
Value ... Martin.

Guitar trslgre, Access in acute and easier, shape and feel well made and trs, and finishing.

Only BMOL for this guitar is the neck, it remains difficult to play, not to empty the bars and agreements rather complicated! We can quickly catching tendinitis! Also the handle is not varnish, which is problematic lorqu'il is hot and you sweat, because the thumb grip, and has a lot to me dplacements gene.


Against noise issue by then! L Martin they made strong! It is a pleasure vritable, a perfect balance in the spctre, warm bass as I love, the beautiful mdiums and treble that sounds like the crystal. Finally vritable a pleasure, both involved in picking the mdiator. I never had as much fun playing the finger elsewhere. Not the frankly they have strong, because this guitar is not completely solid wood!


So I use it for a year now, what I like least is like I said the hardness of the shaft, but it makes up in sound so well that we forget quickly tendinitis!
Before buying it, I took a m'tais Journe to find the guitar that sounds old as I love vintage. Basically J'T parties for Taylor, but the whole essay APRS upscale at Taylor, I did not find one that REALLY sounded like I was looking for! So it is with Martin that I rabatu, and I finally found my Bonnheure trying one acoustic MODEL 2500 euros. Only I did not want to put this money and I really wanted a pan shot.
And that's the end of the essay I Journe XC1T Ellypse and I really took a slap at the sound! it sounded even better than Martin and 2500 euros for only 1000 euros. Unbelievable.

Obviously I would do without this choice problem. For the price there is no better on the market. Against it by a guitar that I use only for the studio as too difficult to live, but I think I have found another Martin, but to live with a handle easier.

Martin & Co XC1T Ellipse
Guitar Martin Special Editions Ellipse. 14 boxes pan shot.
Table pica Sitka massif.
Rosette patterns with Indian Rosewood, saddle and koa.
HPL back and wicker covers satin fawn.
Ditto head with black logo.
Channel stratabond in bne. Bne fingerboard and bridge.
Ankles with black pearl points.
Gotoh Cosmo Black Mcaniques CFM logo.
Fishman Ellipse Blend Prampli. (Embedded in the rose, I love "but
not electro? b if if ... look ... " )
There is a rglage to balance between the two pickups, one volume, and another
button to decrease the Feedback I think depending on where you play (check)
Book by tui rigid Martin. (Beautiful)
I put 9 because I do not know what will evolve back and wicker covers. For the time being
it's perfect but because it is a new matriau ... see but I think we can trust Martin.


The walking is good trs, trs enjoyable and feels good wood.
CHAC is possible thanks to the sharp cutaway. A pan shot what.
Ergonomics weird because the handle seems heavier than the body but in the end
it's super enjoyable. (in comparison with a Takamine or body mass is heavier).
The sound - nothing to say, trs good balance for all frequencies. It's here must first ds agreements.
But I think for such a choice of guitar strings is important for
keep some sustain and volume. I think there are more adaptable than mdiums of lights for that gear.

I put 8 because I think this guitar the strings a bit high RULES to departure.


- Appropriate are your style of music?
I play both arranged folk standards as Butler or John McKee as open.
Nothing wrong to be. Do not string too soft.

- What are the sounds you prfrez, you dtest?
Caution is the kind of guitar that does not Tolra a cord with 1 / 4 of hair from your perch a little higher in an agreement. It s understood right away.
But rgl ... It does not explain s, ca s listening.


- How long have you use it?
I use it for a week.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
The best: the sound and effect ond on the back and wicker covers.
Minimum: CHAC cell (c is good but not every day that it is changing.)

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
Larrive, although but slightly upgraded now.

- How do you report qualitprix?
It is "RESPECT" Dear, 1000, at least a good serve and it has something to
good ...

- With the exprience, you do again this choice?
I do not t's. Especially with the tui that throws!
I would do so this choice.
