Comments about Martin 000-28 Eric Clapton Signature Auditorium Acoustic

After playing guitar for over 25 years it was time for an instrument like this. During the past couple of years

I'd increased my playing time and found that I was enjoying it more and wanting to push myself.

I've found that instruments that are better than the player create inspiration for practicing and pushing oneself,

and from the first minute that I had this guitar in my hands and began playing, I fell in love.

Confesiona of a Martin Addict

There ARE other Martins ...

but as other reviewers have noted, it is difficult to imagine wanting or needing anything more from a real 'player's guitar' than Martin offers in this wonderful model

HD28.

Differences between gibson and martin

j200 sounds like a full resilient spring, martin is a dry spread of cannon. Some people say that gibson is suitable for playing ,

i understand in this way that probably because the sound will not fried out even you are forced to play .

There is no better one , just depends on your own music style and which you prefer.

fender gibson ibanez short comparision

fender and gibson are very different, not the same type and purpose, the same price is also immeasurably,both have their own special sound. Along with Ibanez, these three brands can be Top three in rock world.  In early stage Fender guitars are mostly single coil,high frequency is very good , sound is clear . Tele is also single coil at early stage ,  IF is very good , though the fast-paced rhythm is not as good as Fender, but very suitable for country music and Blues. When the rock was not so properous , the rural folk blues

Finally it's the Taylor 814ce

But ultimately i chose the 814ce,  for one reason it is more cost-effective , for another, i was deeply attracted by its characteristics .

From low-end GS Mini  to high-end Martin Koa Custom, i have tried all them .  Finally decided to choose one from the M36 and in 814ce. 

Gibson Acoustic Dove

 Not many acoustic guitars are as recognizable as the Gibson Dove. Unfortunately they can be very hard to come by. Luckily Gibson Acoustics has released the Dove Ebony acoustic-electric guitar。The Dove's tonewood selection of Sitka spruce and maple combines with the longer 25.25" scale length to give the Dove Ebony a clear and present tone with plenty of power.


gibson j-45 standard

Tommy Emmanuel says this is the one. Any more questions are moot....

The J-45 is Gibson's best-selling acoustic of all time. Nicknamed "The Workhorse" and first introduced in 1942,

this iconic acoustic has become the cornerstone of its round-shoulder, dreadnought line. World renowned for its full,

balanced expression, warm bass and excellent projection, the 2016 J-45 has been refined to carry this legacy to new heights.

If you are blessed with the funds to buy a guitar of this caliber, you need to look no further than the Gibson J-45 Custom Rosewood. 

Immaculate just about sums it up in every aspect!!

This guitar is largely viewed as a "mistake" and is considered to be a collectors item although it was notably used by Kurt Cobain  .

Martin d45 assessment

 D45 will be with me throughout  my life ,a guitar  for future generations Ideal for recording into the studio,   decomposition chord  reaction to the fingertip is particularly sensitive,  that is to say  the length of the nail will be affect the sound effect .If you want a little brighter tone, you must stay nails.Long nails will decrease the efforts ,so it  depends entirely on what kind of tone and intensity of your fingers.This is the so-called finess.These are  i comprehend  after   having d45  .

Martin HD-28-Terrific Guitar and Even Better Service

I have had my Martin HD-28 for 3 weeks and I have fallen in love with it. It is well balanced with great low end clarity. It has a deep rich tone for both fingerpicking and strumming.

Martin HD-28-Terrific Guitar and Even Better Service

For me my HD-28 is more than a guitar. I'm very gratefull that I had enough money to buy one. It has become an instrument I play and care with respect.

In the meantime it has given me new melodies for writing other songs.

Martin HD28 Natural

 It's so worth it though. There is nothing like feeling your music. I debated on this or the standard 28, but you are spending a lot anyway,

go the extra bit and get the appointments. If you are doing the three year financing it's only a little more per month and with it. It's a beauty and a joy.

Martin OO-42SC JM model

The Martin OO-42SC JM model is an amazing instrument. The guitar is a piece of art. Martin put care, attention and creativity into every inch of this guitar.  


My Martin D28

Obviously I knew a d28 is the standard of dreds but honestly, I was not prepared for the quality and amazing sound that this Martin delivered.

The finish is better in person and it's honestly the best sounding and playing acoustic I have ever laid my hands on.

I'll be adding an internal passive pickup at some point but besides that and a strap button, this is all the acoustic I'll ever need. 

At last,I am absolutely thrilled and in love with my new Martin D-28.

Taylor 914ce -how you play and what you play

Like other guitar lovers mostly enlightened by Oshio fingerstyle , first started selecting from Martin guitars . First took a fancy to GPCPA1,
but because of the uncertainty about pickup effect of sparring board sound,advising the owner of the guitar , the answer is : only a little ,
because basically  Martin does not have Mic pickups . If we consider the function of pickuo, he suggested that i took consideration of taylor 814ce ,

Taylor 914ce 2015 model ES2

i tried the new section 814ce , since the fredboard is not a pure black ebony , so i passed this guitar . But in fact, the scene feeling tone of 814 and 914 is so much like ,
at least more than 80% similarity .  And then i wanted to choose between the PS14 and 914ce ,
 because PS14 is COCOBOLO side and back , compare to 914ce , the volume is more soft ,is relatively better bass. But the price is shown there , meanwhile , PS14 is too gaudy ,I feel a little pompous, it was also passed . Also I tried several other customized version,
and finally locked up relatively well balanced 914CE. Of course, many of my friends ask,why I do not like Martin. Actually ,about this question , i don't want to talk about so much ,
because individually , i don't like Martin d-type , also do like very much bass.

The legendary D-28

It is a brand new Martin D-28! Martin, with its rich history as the oldest guitar company in the USA should certainly know how to build guitars that sound and perform beautifully, and this guitar is proof of the value of choosing experience and an iconic and classic design. The guitar does not disappoint on sound, setup, beauty, or hand feel - its really got stunning sustain, action, and play-ability. Some may prefer the louder sound of the HD-28, which is a great guitar too with extra volume for live performance, but the D-28 standard is no slouch in tone or volume either, despite the more solid bracing pattern, with a nuanced and balanced tone.

The legendary D-28

I ordered the D-28 Natural about a year ago,out of the box it's a good sounding guitar but nothing spectacular. Play it for a few days though and as it starts opening up you'll feel the urge of playing it more and more. After a couple of weeks you'll understand all the hype and mystique behind the D-28. Then you'll find out why it is considered THE standard steel stringed guitar but be prepared: After that aural bliss you'll probably lose some hours of sleep or even get a little sloppy with your day job. It'll be almost impossible to put it down.

What classic guitars do we have ?

t is the first guitar the Martin first produce Dreadnought guitar body?

Martin d28 though is not the best among all Martin guitars, many years past ,proved that it is the most popular and best selling  guitar ,

also the best value guitar which has very good reputation(compare to other guitars at similar price)

Taylor 914ce or Taylor 916ce ?

Guitar body of 916 is widers , the volume is higher, the other difference can be ignored. Mainly to see the guitar body type,

914 looks more delicate, abd if a larger body , then can use 916. If choose only from the body type and volume ,

the difference in volume is not obivious , when people playing will feel , and won't hear much difference if do not  pay attention ,

only to see what type you like .
