I've been eyeing one of these. I've had a sucky Takamine that hardly has any "oomph" and volume. I need a replacement.

anyway i like the Little Martins because of them being travel friendly. but i have some questions (i have no ride to GC)
1) where is it made? since it's a Martin, shouldnt it be made in the USA? but that price...
2) is it really that good? i just cant help but want it! lol
3) how does an acoustic java mahogany/koa guitar sound?

They're probably MIM. Taylor makes the Baby Taylor, which is also MIM. If it sounds good to you and you want - buy it.

Koa has a nice sound to it. My son has a Koa Takemine and I've got a Koa Taylor T-5 - both have great sound. Koa is a nice sounding tonewood, usually found in acoustics.

I don't believe they're made in the US anymore. Mexico now, if I'm not mistaken. Anyways... I really wouldn't suggest one unless you're buying it as a smaller guitar for children or if you're buying it purely for the purpose of travelling. They're not exactly the best sounding guitars. You can do better for the price.

The prices aren't really that low... Yes, it's a Martin, but made with subpar materials. Their laminate guitars are basically just baked hard grey gloop with a wood coloured sticker on it(no, im not kidding about the sticker).

For $500, I could buy an all solid wood Epiphone Masterbilt series guitar. They're seriously good guitars.
