MODEL of the first class at Martin with a massive table. Matt varnish. Chrome hardware (very average). Frets (neck and table) and ball-tie strings plastoc fairly cheap.
Reduces Dcoration its simplest form (COD rosette dcalcomanie).

UTILIZATION

Here we go ... velvet! A super enjoyable round, which just comes to hand, even for those with small hands like me!
Access in acute not easy (it's not a scoop, there's no cutaway ...).
The weight is amazingly lightweight, which also is not dsagrable, actually.
And Obviously, the sound! Yeah, it is not trs beautiful, but it sounds like a great!

SOUNDS

Martin is n'achte not by chance: in particular, the sound spectrum is trsdsquilibr but a particular, precisely, the Martin's! So yes, sr, the sound matches the style of music I play. In dpart Moreover, j'tais party to buy a D15, while Saddle massif. And then for the blow, the sound does not suit me: just too typical as with severe acute and not crystalline. For someone who wants to Robert Johnson, has to be great.
The DM has a personality but is versatile enough to go from blues to folk, or variation on.
Now Obviously, there is no miracle is not the sound of a D28 or 000. Not the same budget, either ... and the day I will play like Clapton, may be I'll break my piggy bank; o)

OVERALL OPINION

It's been a year since I possde. I was using before a Simon & Patrick (Canadian luthier, solid table), I care, moreover, to get the o I do not dare leave the Martin!
I'm still happy: it is a rgal for at least 4 of 5 senses: sight (the table is beautiful!), The oue (videmment!), touch (very agr able, I insist) ... and smell (ah, the smell of wood when I get out of the tui ...)
A BIG BMOL however (and this is the same as for my Simon & Patrick) finish. The varnish "natural" trs mat, and in fact almost non-existent, not being protected by no means the table, which becomes extremely sensitive to the slightest shock, and even the friction of the hand (with the acidity of sweat, I guess). So, I plan to do trssrieusement varnish by a luthier (but I have not the slightest ide = increasing impacts on the level ... or at the price!)
