Martin OOO-16GT Reviews
This Martin is a OOO-16GT. The 'GT' stands for 'Gloss Top'. It's an auditorium size guitar meaning it has a smaller body than your typical dreadnaught guitar. The guitar features a solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides. The neck profile is shallow resulting in an extremely playable neck. The fit and finish on this guitar is true Martin. Even the soundboard braces visible through the soundhole are hand sanded and fit perfectly. It came with medium gauge Martin strings and was setup with low action and no buzz.
I'm a professional guitarist with 31 years experience. I play many styles of music and perform blues, jazz, contemporary and chord/melody style arrangements on this Martin. I use the OOO-16GT mainly in my instructional videos for Elmore Music.
For the price, I would look into a OOO-16GT if you're shopping for a multi-purpose acoustic steel-string. You certainly can't go wrong with one of these.http://www.youtube.com/johngorbe#p/u/28/OYPOpHXToF4
