Up for sale is this fantastic sounding Made in Mexico (MIM) Performing Artist Series Martin guitar.

It has Fishman F1 analog electronics that are working perfectly with tone, volume control, and a tuner built in. It has a natural gloss, Solid Sitka Spruce top for a rich, lively tone that will continue to enhance with age. It also has a rosewood fretboard; off set dot inlay on neck; and gold foil Martin logo on headstock.

This guitar did not originally come with a case, but I am including a Deluxe Gator Case listing for $149.99.

My Thoughts:
I have played/owned many acoustic electric guitars; from Ovation, Gibson, Taylor, Ibanez, and of course Martin. I have owned USA made Martins and MIM Martins. The first Martin I bought was a MIM Performing Artist Series Martin at Guitar Center. I spent two days playing and comparing every Martin and Taylor they had. I was amazed that the MIM Performing Artist Martin I finally bought sounded just as good, or dare I even say, better than most of the more expensive made in USA Martins and Taylors. But after time, I thought I "needed" a USA Martin. So I sold my MIM and got a 3xs more expensive USA Martin. It did sound great, but in all honesty for three times the price, not really that much better than the MIM Martin. SO I sold that USA Martin and got TWO MIM Martins and had some cash left over. Well finally it's time to sell one of my two.

If you just have to have a USA Martin, get one, you won't regret it! BUT if you don't want to pay 3 to 4 times the amount and still get 90% of the tone of a USA Martin; this MIM Martin will do it for you. You won't be disappointed.
