Thanks for the welcome...........I just traded in my Seagull Maritime SWS Rosewood on this Matrtin.  Just don't like dreadnaught bodies.  So now I'm down to an old Seagull S6, two Tanglewoods, a Taylor GS Mini and Miss Martin.


Just need to learn how to play now.............

Welcome James,  I have a 1996 16 series cutaway that I bought new.  I have had zero problems and it is by far my favorite guitar.  Happy Playing!
