Closest StoreMontréal, Quebec
Bought this in october 2019. Was looking for a quality guitar comfortable to play with a warm tone without electronics since I play mostly on my couch at a more affordable price (I can't justify having an incredibly expensive guitar at my guitar skill level) It sounds great and is very easy and comfortable. The nut is wide enough to finger pick as well. I chose this over the gs mini because it's all solid wood and it felt slightly bigger to play, also the responsiveness of the guitar and how it vibrates compared to others in this category really drove my decision. I felt like it was the one which stood out the most. The taylor necks are a little more comfortable but the martin is a close second. I was considering the taylor academy but I felt like the martin just sounded so much better even if the academy was bigger in size, probably the all solid wood build. This is the perfect couch guitar. I have a full size dreadnought and it's crazy how it's not comfortable in comparison. The guitar is still loud even though it's small but if you jam with other people the dreadnought sound pierces through more. The gig bag is alright, it's a little padded but I wish it had a harder shell to it or at least more padding. In this price range I was debating getting the simon and patrick woodland pro. They're all wood and full sized but I felt like they didn't sound nearly as nice nor played as well even if they were built in canada. In the end very happy with the guitar, sounds great, easy and comfortable to play. Would buy a higher end martin in the future based on this one.
