This is the 2nd OOO I've owned. The 1st became a victim of divorce. It sported an Indian Rosewood back and sides. I found this OOO-M and after playing it quietly in the back of my local stringmeister's shop fell in love with the feel, sound and playability of this little beast. The Mahogony back and sides give her a warm timbre with a mellow projection brought to life in the spruce top. The whole range from deep lows to sweet mids and bright trebles seeps from every note of this little guitar. She frets easilly and encourages one to try new things on it to sonically challenge the musical palate you are able to create with this sweet axe. WHen I was ready to leave the store another customer commented on how well I played and sweet and rich the OOO sounded. That was it... I was back in about a half hour with a Taylor and some jack to make the trde complete and this sweet little instrument mine. Martin quality is written all over the OOO-M and when you play it it is extremely evident attention to the instrument went into how it sounds and playes rather than appearance like so many other makers are doing now. I was very pleased as I've had some bad experiences with Martin over the last 15 - 20 years and didn't think I'd ever own another after that. But a Little Martin LXM changed all that and convinced me to look at Martin again like I did back in the 70's. I'm glad I did. Martin is now once again producing, in my opinion, some of if not ,the, finest stringed instruments in the world.You have to shop a little and express yourself through the instrument and remember that unless you have some reason for absolutely, positively having a D-28 or some such, check out some of the less expensive plain Jane Martins like the OOO's and you might just find more than a guitar... a soul mate in music. That's what Martin Guitars are all about.

This guitar has one of the worst actions I have ever played. If you are a beginner, your fingers will ache and you will give up guitar if this is your instrument. Go play others in the same price range and don't worry about brand. Get one that doesn't work your fingers to the bone to get a chord. I have played many and started with this one. Almost gave up guitar.

For the Money, You Can't Beat It

By Joe-3QMmH

from Sacramento, CA

I own quite a few guitars, including six Martins, and I tend to play this one quite a bit. Being relatively inexpensive, as far as Martins go, this is the guitar I usually take out of the house. It has held up very well over the last couple years. The tone and playability of this 000 is unmistakeably Martin. The neck is very comfortable and the 000 body style fits like a glove. You get this guitar, the only thing you will find difficult is putting it down.Sure, if you have the bucks, you may rather have a 000-28 or something, but for the money, I believe this little guitar is about the best you'll find.

Best Deal On The Planet

By Chris The Shred

from SLC, Utah

After comparing it to the Eric Clapton Signature model back and fourth for about 2 hours I could not find a difference in tone between the two, actually the only difference I found was the $2500 + price difference. So don't let the price fool you.

great feel

By blackjeep53

from arkansas

I bought a 000-M from a friend. He didn`t like the high action. I bought it at a great price. After about a hour and a few bucks at a guitar luither. Action was lowered and a new set of strings. I can`t put it down. Great little guitar.

Comfort doesn't describe it!

By Builderguy

from Iowa

This has been my scratch and dent darling for a year now. The thin body and comfortable neck let me play for hours instead of minutes. It isn't boomy like the dread body's or overpowers your voice. It also stays in tune forever. She's a keeper.

Martin convert...

By ReciprocalHokie

from Chapel Hill, NC

I've played an Ovation for over 20 years; no doubt a solid workhorse with premium sound. But I bought myself this Martin over other more expensive Martins just because I found the sound to be "just right", and it's unexpectedly lightweight which is also a plus. It hangs in my bedroom next to the Ovation and when I clear my throat in the morning, I can hear the Martin "ring" in sympathy (as much as I love my Ovation, she never did this).My only comments are 1) I've had to adjust my style of play to fit the Martin. At first I tended to overplay it and I've found it to have a much lighter touch. Consequently, mistakes are harder to cover up :-P 2) one could find as resonant and playable a guitar at a lower price. Martin's do tend to be overpriced, but I'm one of those guys who likes quality and cache and is willing to pay for it. I'm sold on this guitar.

Its a Martin

By Wired4Sound

from Cincinnati, Ohio

No doubt to me that the sound is very sensitive and crisp for this price tag. I am drawn to auditorium styles thinner as well as light weight. I can hardly put this one down, thus is improving my playability. For the price buy it buy it~!

Amazing Guitar

By K. B.

from Seattle

Ask me a question

I have been playing guitar for over 33 years and have found this instrument (Martin 000-M ) to be an exquisite example of what a guitar should be. The solid top really resonates boldly, and the neck is quite comfortable. If one finds the action too high, that can be easily remedied be taking it to a qualified luthier. Martin always stands behind their guitars. What a beautiful sounding instrument!

Great guitar for the price.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I purchased my 000M as it supposedly had a "factory flaw" in the finish, which turned out to be a small, slightly more glossed spot, that was around the size of a dime. I have played basically all the other guitars in the price range, going from Seagulls, Guilds, entry level Taylors, and the Martin DX series. None of the above guitars could match the sound of the 000M. I picked it off of the top shelf and played a chord on it and instantly fell in love. The Auditorium body style is very attractive and rather easy to play. the only problem I would have about this guitar is that the action is a little high, but that can be fixed with some minor modifications. I would highly reccomend this guitar.

Amazing Guitar

By Yamaha Taylor

from Tennessee

This is a great guitar. I own two other acoustics and one electric and this one is definitely my favorite. The action is a little high but Martin's are also designed more towards bluegrass players and most of them like their action a little higher. Not to mention that is easily remedied with a little sandpaper on the bottom of the bridge. You will not regret buying this guitar. It is amazing!
