Thanks for your replies,

If I get the chance, I'll have a look at another Martin 0x1e to see if the top is flatter (ie not showing an obvious sinking on the treble side). 20 years of experience with HPL is probably long enough for the company to have sorted most potential long-term stability issues.

Not too sure if I want one in pink though Although my wife did say that the 'mahogany grain' pattern on the one I had on trial did look like cheap laminate flooring!!!!! But she loved the sound and thought the guitar matched my voice perfectly. I think that she was sadder than me when I decided it had to be returned because of the slight sinking of the top.
