This guitar is very light which makes it very easy to carry. It has a plastic nut and a saddle but easily replaceable with a bone or wood. The inlays don’t have the perfect cut and the end of the fret wires mainly along the bottom edge is not so smoothly cut. This electro acoustic guitar plays just acoustic. The sound it produces is nice, on the part of the player; as the sound matters more to players. But on the part of the audience, it just looks good and sounds good. The lightweight feature of this guitar although is a plus; for the reason that it provides easier portability, it seem to make the guitar not that durable. And although the glossy black finish looks good, it’s obviously not sanded down properly.

Martin Smith is a smashing guitar with great tone. It is not exactly a top end guitar but for the price it is excellent. This guitar would suit anyone wanting good sound for an affordable price.
