Hey there UG,
I recently won an auction for a Martin DM on ebay and was wondering whether the DX1R or the DM was better and if 500 is worth it for the guitar, it comes with a hard case. Also I've seen the price range for it to be between $500-$1200 for the same model and was wondering what is the difference (besides new and second hand).

I live in Australia and it's shipping from USA with 14 day return policy, I hope the shipping cost is low enough to justify this buy.

Let me know your opinions below, thanks in advance!
