    Comments about Martin Road Series 000RS1 Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    From America to Zeppelin, and anything acoustic between, this guitar will do it. Nice, nice, nice! Fit, finish, and feel are excellent. Amplified or not, the balance and tone is superior to many guitars selling for hundreds more. I opened the hardshell case, tuned it and played it. Stayed in tune, fretting was easy, sound is deep and natural. I can find no faults. The hardshell case that comes with this guitar at this price point is a bonus. I highly recommend for any and all guitar players.

      Comments about Martin Road Series 000RS1 Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      Great Guitar. I was reluctant to but a Mexican Martin but the American made Martins were over budget for me. So I gave this a try and I'm so glad I did. This is a Great Guitar. Keeps perfect tune for days. The action is low smooth and easy. The sound is great. It plays, sounds, and looks Beutiful. The build quality is superb. Comes with a real nice hard shell case. And it's got a pick up in it. I can't say enough how pleased I am with this guitar. I play it everyday for several hours. I'm definitely a Martin fan now. I'll probably pick up an American Martin someday but for now I'm completely happy with this guitar.

        Comments about Martin Road Series 000RS1 Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

        The "Select Hardwood" neck gives this guitar a toy-like texture. It is an embarrassment to call this a Martin and the higher pricing of these instruments in general are very discouraging

          Comments about Martin Road Series 000RS1 Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

          Focused sound, especially midrange and highs. First class workmanship. My only small beef is that Martin does not include the long allen wrench that is required to adjust the truss rod.

            Comments about Martin Road Series 000RS1 Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

            This is an amazing guitar for the price. The craftsmanship is flawless. It plays just like the higher end american made guitars. The action is low, the tone is sweet and the intonation is perfect. It's very easy to play. Try one if you don't believe me, you'll end up taking it home.

              Comments about Martin Road Series 000RS1 Auditorium Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              The only reason I didn't give 5-stars is because I feel the Fishman pickup is a bit "edgy"...not warm like the sound of the wood on this guitar. You can always EQ an amp/direct line, but when recording its apparent the pick up isn't perfect.
              Love the guitar. Martin nailed it...again!

                Been playing for many years. Taylor 700 series, but this Martin shines. It is such a good instrument for such a good price. You cannot go wrong with this guitar, the sound is full and rich.
