I like Martins and have a few but this looks too much like a Taylor.

I see nothing wrong with their current cutaways.

Music Room update 2




Yup, looks exactly like what the folks at Taylor would do.....

Does that mean that bolt-on neck acoustics are back? The specs sheet of the new Martin acoustic-electric (koa veneer b/s, "select hardwood" neck) doesn't read favorably but then again it's priced accordingly at least.

Yes, this seems to be just as much about the new neck joint and the laminate, err. . . I mean, veneer sides AND back. 

and what guitar doesn't sound sweet with capo5. . . or "interesting" when tuned down. 

Guitar makers do have to try new things, though. The traditional models are still their bread n' butter (although the 000-28VS is custom order-only now).
