The first grip Assembly not easy, the handle is flat enough (for my taste), the action is also not the lowest, and yeah it's a guitar that is widely used in USA to practice bluegrass, so guitarists that fall within, one could lower the action to curl, but nothing serious, it is still completely playable arpeggio, in rhythm, and even picking. This guitar is very light, which is good sign for an acoustic guitar. Side look, it tears completely, it is a marvel, I have had for 5 months and I still admire him as much.


The sound is splendid, the balance is perfect with very low round of the medium as it is necessary, access to treble seems a little difficult on fast tracks (not to be mistaken for J'me this point!)
The chords come out with splendor, and depth of body rather impressive, why is equipped with microphone! (Joke).
This guitar requires a virile game to extract all its richness, I play with a 12/54 drawing, but I think had a 11/52 drawing as elixir for a game a little easier.


I bought this guitar D41 for € 1700, like new (late model 2007) a bargain, I have long dreamed of this Martin, and do not really regret my purchase. This guitar is pretty, it sounds perfectly (I can not tell you when the woods have grown in age).
If you dreamed of, so there's more to save money, you will not regret it! However, remember that you never buy a guitar without trying it ...
