This Martin was supposed to be a replacement for my Work Horse and although it sounded good acoustically it hasn't met the sound of my Martin DXC1E plugged in. It has nice tones, but just isn't suited to the sound I like live. It is well used in the studio and both guitars sound great together. You may notice that the " a r t" have been rubbed of due to capo placement when not in use. It now says "M in&co" on the headstock.
