Comments about Martin 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have a very expensive David Russell Young nylon, but this is now my go-to nylon. The tone is even across the fingerboard, the spruce gives it a nice brightness and volume, plays easily and has sustain for days (and I mean for DAYS), probably due to the steel string-like bracing. Usually you have to work a lot harder to achieve even pull=offs and hammer-ons, but this is effortless. A great purchase. I can't recommend this guitar enough! Just because it is relatively inexpensive, don't pass it by. I am a pro/union guitarist and this is now at my first call nylon.

Poor value, cheesy looks, boxy sound...

By pfos

Comments about Martin 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I'm a Martin guy going way WAY back. But this is nothing like the Martins I've owned and loved. The sound is boxy, thin, and dead. Cheesy orange tuning knobs. Brand new, mine came pre-loaded with a hump in the neck where it joined the body, and both the low E and A strings buzzed. Setup, I know. Musicians Friend, to their credit, paid to ship it back. .

I couldn't find a single thing to like. Very disappointing that a grand old company like Martin would produce this dud. $1500? Not worth half that. Save your money.

    In my hands today

    Comments about Martin 000C Nylon String Cutaway Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    Everyone can eat their heart out as mine was delivered today 8/13. I know it says it ships 9/27. Well I ordered mine right after the Namm show. I'm hoping Musician's Friend will forgive me as I didn't get it from them (I couldn't wait) but hopefully this will help them out in selling s few of this fine instrument and yes I buy lots of stuff from them. Like anyone would need help selling this guitar. Yes I'm a big Martin fan! Read the review I wrote on the JC16 RE Aura. Anyway, I have wanted Martin to make a nylon string acoustic -electric forever. I was so desperate I was about ready to see if their custom shop would build me one. Well sometimes dreams do come true! Actually to me this is a nylon string version of the JC16RE Aura. Very similar. So everyone is going "rate the guitar dummy!" Well if you read the other review you would know I already did! If you haven't, then go read it! Oh yeah and while you are in there it looks like Musicians Friend has only one used one available so if you have half a brain you will snap it up! I'm not certain but I am wondering if Martin discontinued the JC16RE. If they did they have lost their minds as that is one fine guitar! OK I'll rate the 000C. One word: Fantastic! It is all i was hoping for and then some! It is extremely well suited to my preferred style of play which is fingerpicking. Put the flat picks away cowboys. It has no pickguard. I am really stretching here but I managed to come up with a con. I do believe the 000C has a Sapelle back and sides. Don't know about anyone else but I would have gladly payed a little more for rosewood. Not being a luthier I have no idea if rosewood would be suitable or not. Really not a big deal! Funny isn't it? Martin just keeps building such a fine quality instrument that folks like me just keep demanding more and more. Best advice I can give is order one of these now! You'll only be a short timer (about a month). I waited almost 8 months for mine and it was well worth the wait and I'd do it again! My crystal ball definitely says more Martins in my future! Hopefully the next reviewer will go into more of the technical aspects of this guitar.
