mymoustache47's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Martin & Co JM
Guitar U.S.
wooden easel and plastic ivoroid kind
Handle rapid end
Acoustics

UTILIZATION

The handle is great for little fingers
It is lightweight and balanced
The sound is typically Martin (good definition and low boom boom), but less cartoonish than the dreadnough
The sound is pleasant

SOUNDS

It is more folk than blues
I prefer to strumming or picking that balance is more delicate

OVERALL OPINION

I've had seven years. This was my fourth flat top acoustic LG2 after 1954, a Harmony of the 20s and an Art and Lutherie. I found it in Austin Texas at a guitar show and she immediately hit me .... in the ear. This is a low-end at Martin, but it sounds like a OM42.
So for me, the value for money is huge. But I tested the same with Paul Beusher in Bordeaux and it sounded like my Art and Lutherie three times cheaper ...

OHME's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It has the sound I've always tried"

Martin & Co JM
Made in USA
Spruce top and sides mahogany back and laminated mahogany.
The neck is mahogany and the key in Morado, Bolivian Rosewood.
The finish is satin / matte. the box is a little dirty, over time, where we put the elbow and forearm.
It is very simple. A true rose still embedded, not just a sticker

UTILIZATION

The neck is super nice, 20 frets and 14 outside the box
a pitch of 25.4 "and a radius 16. easy to play, easy to strikethrough.
Mine is set with an action fairly low and it does there is no frieze.
The jumbo shape is pretty and it holds much more. She is strong and light enough.

SOUNDS

When you play softly, it sounds very "hot" very "soft", and as soon as the attack, it is believed to be E. Cl .... It sounds a killer and you can hear every note well. This is a guitar to attack without being crystal or metal unlike others. This is probably due to the shape and jumbo non scallopés.Elle dams is made for picking, and especially to "picking the mediator."

OVERALL OPINION

I have over 12 years and I've tried Martin. What I love is the sound soft and warm. It's a mix between a martin and gibson.
maybe this is why they stopped it on the model, not close enough to the spirit martin

SPIRA's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It's almost a Martin Vintage"

Martin & Co JM
It is manufactured in the USA and not Mexico.
You can still find the site features Martin
The table is made of spruce and mahogany back and sides, this is not the solid mahogany, but it seems the laminate is firmer.
The handle is easy to play as many quality Martin
Martin claimed the special fingerpicking. This is true, the notes stand out very well when playing with fingers, but it's almost better with a pick.
It is not electro-acoustic and I never tried to amplify

UTILIZATION

The jumbo shape is much prettier and uncommon dread ..
She plays all styles of blues, country and going to the rocks for playing Cat Stevens. (If it was his sense of rhythm)

SOUNDS

It has a rather muffled, very well balanced when playing softly. And as soon as it comes in, there it sounds fort.Mais It does not sound as bright as most of the Martin, but that's what I wanted to. Those who want a bright sound, it is not for you.

OVERALL OPINION

it's a great guitar. the model no longer made. it's amazing because they have sold a lot. Owners must keep it carefully, it is a vintage guitar, at least in some years.
