What I Liked:
I bought it over ten years ago. I had a little extra money for the first time in decades and I had wanted a Martin for as long as I can remember. This guitar just gets better and better as it ages. It has a lovely tone, especially when acoustic playing blues leads, it smells wonderful (all that mahogany!) and it has been rock-solid with no neck or intonation issues.
What I Disliked:
It has a somewhat narrow neck. I have big hands and sometimes it gets a bit cramped. Other than that, I have no complaints.
What I Would Change:
Nothing. It's a great guitar.
It's worth every penny. One has to like the mahogany look as it is a bit dull in appearance, but as a satisfying instrument it's a real classic.
