Ever Had A Moment Like This One ?

Now that is rosewood at its best, oustanding tone. None of the traditional Martin rosewood boominess and mudd. Very balanced with what sounds oustanding projection and sustain, highly controlled overtone.

 

Im no Martin expert but apparently the 40 series Martins are meant to have a more balanced, open tone, apparently thats what Neil Young found appealing about those models.

 

Really impressive, except the price tag.

Didn't sound that good to me....I heard some buzzing on the strumming, and the saddle looks pretty low.......meh

 

I'd probably look for one of these martins below: (and buy a vintage Roy Smeck conversion, A 1934 L-00, and a '50s J-45m for the same money)

The D-42 on CL looks nice. Not a fan of the Martin 'burst on the other.

 

Anytime the price of a guitar approaches or passes the $10k mark, I start looking at the multiple guitars that money will buy, and say "no thanks".
