|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|The main reason anybody would buy this guitar is probably the way it looks. It has an exclusive look to it, and will make any guitar player feel like a million bucks when you play it. But that doesn’t mean that the sound isn’t good, it really gives a guitar player's music soul and fills it with all the right overtones.||Just the fact that Ed Sheeran uses this little Martin guitar is reason enough for many to buy it, but that’s not the only reason why you should consider it. This Martin acoustic electric guitar is small, which is handy if you tend to require travel guitars or electric guitars for smaller sized hands, and the sound is actually great. It’s really nice that the Little Martin features an built-in tuner as well, no need to look for your tuner every time you’re going to play! Check out the Martin DRS2 or other Martin Road Series DRS1, the Martin DRS 2 and onwards guitars for great Martin acoustics and electrics.|
