David Rockett replied to Charles's discussion Hows the feedback on Martin's new "one" series? in the group Martin Owners
"I played two at guitar center. Did not like the way the neck felt. I thought the sound was good. That being said for my money I would come up with the extra cash and buy a MMV or find a good used 16 series."
