Subject: RE: Tech: The New Martin 1 Series
My mate in the band I am in has one. It cost him about 600 (or equivalent as he bought it in France). Plays very well, pretty loud but not harsh and has the strange looking compound neck mentioned previously. Personally I like it even though I am a J45 type of person, it isn't Martin-ish in that it isn't as crisp but has a real pleasant boomy base nicely balanced by the top end.

Budget in appearance but definately from a good stable, tunes easily and all the tonics ring true. Well worth a punt at the price in my opinion.
