After much thought, debate, research, etc. I purchased a Martin DM. It was a little more than I planned to spend initially, but with a $500 credit towards the purchase I recieved for Christmas, the $899 price tag didn't seem so bad. Plus the MSRP is almost $1,200. It has a wonderful and beautiful tone to it. The guitar itself looks fantastic. I love the look of the Martin's without any gloss and what-not on them. Most of all, I got this guitar, because I just felt comfortable with it. I played Seagull's, Taylor's, Breedlove's, and more, but at the end of the day I felt like this was just a very well made guitar and worth the money. I just wanted to say, thanks for all of your help. Everyone has given great advice.

whats MSRP?

congrats on your new guitar... are you a student or living with your parents or what?

i've been thinking about going for the same price range...

paying 5-600$ and making payments on the rest.

So after a couple of days I decided to take it back. Not because it was a bad guitar...far from it. It was actually too nice. I anticipate moving quite a bit within the next couple of years and I work at a summer camp that doesnt provide you with much in the way of climate control. Therefore I decided to wait a couple of years for a nice Martin and settled for a Seagul S6 Original. This will allow me to beat it up a little and not feel terrible about scratching it. Sorry to get you all excited about my new martin "purchase."
