"There is another thread on this site you might find interesting. It's about the Martin MMV. For all intents and purposes it is a D28 without the price tag. I posted a couple comments over there. I love mine.I just wish it had a wider nut. I had…"
"I too have small hands. I've owned a Martin J40M for over 25 years and to me it is the best guitar your money can buy.
The neck is a great shape and size, I believe it is a gradient radius and the action is fast and…"
"@ ra harris. A little late replying but thanks for the feedback on the small Martins. Since I last replied on here I've been doing some fingerstyle playing - very, very basic stuff but really opens up guitar playing for me personally. I love…"
"I've got the GS mini Rosewood limited edition and it sounds fantastic. I was going to buy a martin ooo-28 one day but now I'm looking at other Taylors. Your GS looks quite dark? Is it a spruce top? I know they do a GS in all mahogany."
"Hi -- If you like small body guitars try a 2-17, a parlor size Martin no longer in production. I have a 1925 version and I play it every day. Artisan guitar shop (I don't have any affiliation with any music store, any where)…"
"Nice tune Freddy - you remind me a little of seasick steve though you play guitar much, much better! Love the sound of the GS - I bought the GS Rosewood a couple of months ago to learn guitar, it's great and one day I hope to play it nearly as…"

"FloridaGull - an update. Just had the Norman b20 checked out by a luthier and he reckons the guitars action is so high that it's virtually unplayable and THAT is why I couldn't really get used to the guitar. So a combination of me not…"
"The light elixer strings I've got on my Taylor GS mini are easy to play, sound great and I'm told they last three maybe four times longer than other strings. I know a lot of people favour D'Addario though I've put Martin strings…"
""My reason for jumping into a Martin..."the Weight" and Doc Watson. I know, I know, pretty flimsy reasoning, but as you say "the most expensive mistake or [a good] decision in my life".
Not flimsy at all. That was…"
"Yes. I spent an eternity trying to find the right guitar for me at a reasonable price and the Taylor GS ticks all the boxes. I was going to get a Martin ooo when I can play to a decent standard but now I'm considering a grown up Taylor Grand…"
"I'm new to guitars but I recently bought a GS Mini Rosewood Limited edition. The guys at the guitar shop said I was strumming the guitar so hard that I was distorting the sound. I've started strumming it lightly and it still projects…"
