I’ve had this guitar for many years. The sound really is that of a full-fledged Martin: full, resonant and very pleasing. I prefer the koa version over the Sitka one, even if we’re talking about HPL; there is a big difference in the sound. A word of advice, though: stick to the Martin recommended (light gauge) strings, I nearly tore the top off my guitar after some idiot at another store sold me strings with too much tension in them. A no-brainer at such an affordable price.

This is a very well done parlour guitar. Feels solid and is very well finished. I am pleased with the sound especially considering there is only the neck and the bracing that are wood. Pleased with this and my 000 size solid wood Martin. Excellent workmanship and L&M is great to deal with.

This guitar is a fun, comfortable to play, surprisingly loud acoustic for its size. It can keep up in a mix with other acoustics. The Koa pattern on the hpl is beautiful, the ridge light fret board feels good and the neck has a comfortable shape. I do not regret this purchase, I picked it up at LM Laval, very pleased with the service, thanks Biaggio!
