Comments about Martin Grand J12-40E Special Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
I bought this newly designed Martin jumbo 12 string based solely on the glowing reviews I had found. It did not disappoint. This is an amazing 12 string. Great bass that doesn't get lost in the jangle. The D-Tar pickup is a two way: internal mic blendable with the piezo. It sounds fantastic (i.e. it sounds like the guitar).This is the first 12 string that I've owned (and I've had a few) that wasn't fatiguing to play. I performed with it for 3 hours with one short break last weekend and my hand never tired.Martin has a real winner with this guitar. It is beautiful to look at and sounds even better. I've compared it with Taylor's 12 strings (which are also great), but this one won the race, in my opinion.Nice job, Martin. Homerun!
